I put my boots on at the car and walk to the lifts... of course at Loveland and A-basin, that entails an entire 2-minute walk. :)

My boot tech carries the bag of boots and my ski tech carries the skis...

any questions...... 8)

Why is it that making your poles and skis into a carry-all considered stupid? You know, when you use the straps from your poles to hold your skis horizontally?

I saw on another site that walking from your car to the lift with your ski boots on is gaper-ness. Why? What if I don't want to rent a locker and I just want to walk straight to the lifts?

All of the other gaper actions I understand, but these two I don't.

It seems like there is some ellite ski-clique commitee that makes these up. I just need some logic.

You have been reading epicski haven't you.

I walk from my car with boots on more times than not, but for the pole carrying deal. As long as I got shoulders they will carry my skis.

Call me gaperish, but I wear my boots unless I have to park in the back forty. As far as the pole/ski carry, I tend to shy away from that. It just ain't cool. I keep my ski straps on until I get to the snow, then just stuff them in a pocket.

I definately will wear my boots and walk from the car to the lift if Im at another mountain and/or dont have my stuff in the Instructors hut. It beats the hassle of finding a place to store stuff. As for the "Florida Carry-All" (sorry for the Floridians that can actually ski) thats a No No.

As for the "Florida Carry-All" ... thats a No No.

ok, why not? Is there some logic behind this? My goal in this post is to find reasons for these rules.

I thought that maybe newbies are slinging their skis around and hitting other people.
