Hey, I'm "Doc" (aka: Barstooler)

Hello,

I am new to skiing this year and new to the TalkSki forum. I live in Colorado Springs and started skiing this year. I am 58 years young, a retired fighter pilot and I love skiing. I have 25 ski days this year and went from beginner to level 7 in 3 months.

My favorite skis are the Vokle AC 40, and the K2 Apache Recon.

I joined the local ski club (Sno Jets) and look forward to to doing double blacks by this spring.

Love Summit County. :-)

Doc

Well, I live in C. Springs but obviously no skiing opportunities in El Paso County.

Bought a Colorado Pass and 4-Pass(es) for Loveland, Copper Mt., and Winter Park/MJ.

Normally stay in a B&B in Silverton (which is very centerally located) and then ski where the snow is best.

Retired military so also take advantage of MWR bus trips -- (have Ft. Carson, Pete Field, and AF Academy options every Fri-Mon).

SnoJets also have some great trips that we have signed up for.

I like the back bowls at Keystone, Breck, and Vail the best.

Doc
