Snowshoe West VA Ski Trip

Very off-topic but just thought I would post some pics from my ski trip. The night we got there it was -3 Deg F (Freakin cold) I don't see how you Canada / Alaska guys handle that crap on a regular basis! Anyway, we were there 5 days. On day 3 to take a break from skiing we rented a couple Ski-Doos and hit the mountain trails (with a guide unfortunately). Man it was awesome! I never realized how much fun a snow mobile is! But all in all a great trip!

Lol.. I hear ya. I think skiing/boarding is one of those sports that if you're not planning on making it hobby then just save your money. One trip is like paying someone $60 to repeatedly kick you in the butt...

Great pictures, but where is the Acats. Dad had a snowmobile back in the early 70's when he lived in NE Ohio. Tried it in Ky on one occasion, it was fun. Sure technology exploded on these machines since then.

TBird.. I know... It's funny that most of the time I was skiing and looking at the scenery I was thinking about how much fun it would be to take my Prowler all over that place! The funny thing was the Snowmobiles the rentals used were ski-doos.. the ones ski-patrol and the guides used were Arctic Cats's.. Firecats I think they were called...

Fat Cat... Well if everyone was like me your area would be a barren wasteland.. lol.. But I guess it's all in what you get use to and prepare for. At -3 I thought I was going to die between the truck and the door of the condo!! It didn't make it any easier that you couldn't see. The wind was kicking at 30-40mph gusts. When that happened it was like a momentary white-out and you couldn't see shi**... Still fun though...
