THE GREAT SKI SALE OF 2015

IMG_3223

So into the last week of the school bus driver’s vacation and time to get all those ski gear items on ebay and give some freedom to buy a few extra bits and bobs for both skiing and the trials machines.

Today then, is a sorting and cataloging day after proving once more that the body can’t be squeezed into various items of clothing!

Boots wise I’m down to three selections but I’m struggling as there are no local dealers and I can’t try them on. One is a 2013 model and very difficult to find, but the other two are available at prices over $400 as they are this year’s . Need to sell a fair bit then ?

Today its New Year’s Eve and the forecast is a nice snow storm starting sometime today and dumping 4-8″ overnight and New Year’s Day. Better get plenty of wood in prior to the start as it sounds pretty nasty once it begins.

A few practice games to start and now ALL the ski stuff is humped on the table! WOW a lot more here than I thought, now the trying on phase (without pretending that one day …)

Well I could get on more than I thought but I still have at least 7 jackets, 5 pairs of trousers and 2 pairs of boots to put on ebay.

It did snow overnight but nowhere near as bad as the forecast and today is maybe another 2-4″ to add to last night’s 2. The ski pants get measured and details taken, more pool is played and more snow comes down. Enough snow for Brenda to take the classic winter lights pics.

A champagne and pool party went well and a great practice for me with the cue. Normality today and finish the listings and photographs and get them on the bay this afternoon. Just a little cool this morning at -1F. That took a lot longer than planned but now its Saturday morning, everything is listed……. let the bids come in!

Today its the Riverfront Pool Championship and with both of us qualified a few practice frames will be the order of the morning, post dog walking.

Lunchtime, practice pool is done, now for some drinking in the Pool glass before copious GT’s during what I hope will be a full afternoon’s play.

  1. Hey Tony – Hope you and Brenda had a great Christmas & New Year – Tried to do this on face-book – but I guess you didn’t see it.
    Everything pretty good up here, except for the biggest snowfall since 1959 – so no Trials riding over the Holiday. – Looking ahead to the New Season, we will once again be hosting the WTC Western Canadian Championship Trial at Revelstoke on June 27/28 – This was a huge success in 2014 – like a mini World round starting from the parking lot of the Glacier House Lodge – Trophy Presentations in the Pub at night – Perfect.
    Lots of love to you guys
