  1. It was really cool to hear how stoked everyone was on the podcast. For better or worse, the Snow Show is sort of a “State of the Union” and reflects the attitudes of the industry. There were a lot of smiles and optimism. Did I hear correctly that something resembling a flight helmet and visor is “in” now? I digress.

    What I really came to say was that I’ll offer up a nice bottle to the first person to get Max G. Force in a 3L anorak.

  2. Jonathan’s comments at 6:48 were like a knife in the heart— I just bought and mounted the Rossi Super 7 RD on Blister’s recommendation! They are now as obsolete as my 1989 Patagonia Anorak shell. Oh, wait a minute…….
