Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

How the "bad ass" truckers ski

Here's a ski article the like of which I've never read before:

Writer Jon Billman of US magazine Skiing hooks up with two truckers who drive up to 5000 miles a week across the States to fuel their passion for skiing. Here are some extracts:
Quote:
Kirk, who resembles a cross between Reinhold Messner and Johnny PayCheck, laughs my way. "You were sure taking a chance on us, coming up here to go skiing with a couple truck drivers. You mighta got a 300-pound turkey who runs the green slopes." Actually, the brothers put together probably don't trip the 300-pound mark. At 60 (Kirk) and 56 (Robb), they're aging athletes, but they are athletes.

Quote:
After a night in Missoula and a breakfast heavy on the white gravy, the air brakes bleed a hiss as we pull into the yard at Black Dog Timber near Stevensville. The log dogs here know the brothers and talk about skiing and California roundwood prices. "We're headed to Lost Trail," Kirk tells Nate, who is strapping down more logs on top of the load. "That place is awesome," Nate smiles. "You a skier?" I ask him. "Hell, yeah!" He hollers down. "We went to Whistler on our honeymoon. My wife wanted to go to Fiji."

It's an amazing read, if you like road movies (including Duel)! Click here for more.

It's nice to know that Hemingway and Kerouac have left a legacy of social commentary that's still fresh and still being added to. Good trip. Cool

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Driving 5000 miles a week would be enough to give anyone a bad ass.

Just to assist with our imagery of the first trucker Kirk [Nordell], here's Reinhold Messner, and here's Johnny PayCheck.

I guess he has a beard, then.

And would require you to be a skier, as opposed to a boarder. Must be difficult sitting on the piste.....etc...
