Good to have you on board, Cowmon2,

Yes the "old knee" syndrome, gee can't we all relate to that one, if your over 40 (hope I have have not caused any offenence - yes of course YOU ARE 21 at the Most 25 !!! )

When I am at the snow, I dream of waking up with new set of knees every morning !
But hey the idea is to enjoy ourseleves, we don't have to prove nuthin' - that's for the youngíns !
And we can appreciate our coffee a little more too!

Have a good one.
The Ice-Cutter

Bit of a postscript, for me on the above.
I have been over here in Whistler-Blackcomb for 7 days now & have another 3 to go.
i just can't believe the size of this resort & length of the runs , massive in comparsion to Oz. I am probably not skiing as hard / fast as I would at home, but I have to stop a lot to just check that I am still on the same trail as I thought I was!
The knees are getting a rest from that!
