I have been lurking here a couple of years, really enjoying reading the ancient threads you guys created over the years. I think I actually stumbled onto the site by way of a thread about the demise of Hawksnest, a resort I sadly never got to ski.

Anywho, someone mentioned in another recent thread how message boards were dead due to the rise of other forms of social media... forms I tend to avoid like the plague. To get to the point, I don't want to see this message board die! I just read a nice article by David which amps up my excitement about the coming season another notch.

I'm sure it has been said, but thank you to the guys that contribute these enjoyable and sometimes humorous posts - I really don't want to see this site die any time soon.

I assume these posts are unpaid, but I could be wrong. Is there any way we can show our appreciation to the writers that toil on in spite of the impending social media apocalypse? I'm not above tossing some cash towards the guys that take the time to write an article that gets me through a long work day dreaming about snow.

Thanks!

Just keep posting ! there is a long history you're right, and it continues one post at a time, or somesuch nonsense like that.

Thank you for the shout out, I like that article, there was a lot about the state of ski magazines I could have gone deeper into, perhaps another time.

The thread YOU started about the most challenging SE runs was excellent and I said I'd post some pictures but never did .. it's the right time of the year for some preseason stoke, I'll look for some good ones in the next few days

Depends on whats being contributed. If you get in on the first day of the season they might hook u up with a free lift ticket or something because sometimes theyll just flat out ask if anyone has any content. (If they say theyll send u something they will...but u may have to remind them)

Back in the day we used to have contests.....but its been a while since Ive seen one sadly.
