It's cool and rainy in Alaska today, so I'm doing indoor "stuff".

Check out the linked webcams. This is the area where Olympic gold medalist Tommy Moe honed his skills after relocating from Whitefish, Montana, where he started skiing as a child. I remember switching to the type of skis he used, and have stuck with that manufacturer ever since.

FYI, he is now co-owner of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge in the Alaska Range, and lives in Wilson, WY, where he is an ambassador of skiing at Jackson Hole Ski Resort. (I remember running into boxing "ambassadors" years ago in the sports book at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas: former notables in the sport who lost most of their earnings to unethical agents and handlers. I think being a "ski ambassador" is a higher status position. I remember a women's basketball star at Montana State University getting a similar gig at the old Moonlight Basin Ski Area. She also happened to be drop dead gorgeous!)

NMac, I too am a "recovering Facebook user", who fled the place when they became progressively more and more intrusive. I like this "place" for its relative independence and freedom.
