Some Jski bits:

— a hardcore K2 loyalist
— not opposed to cross-country, but when pressed, would probably not consider it "skiing"
— childhood ski areas: the now-defunct Roundtop (VT), the now-defunct Berkshire Snow Basin (MA), Berkshire East (aka, Berkshire Ice, MA, where the ARHS ski team smoked weed and sometimes raced)
— Flying Cloud is a trail at Berkshire East
— Out There was shot in Canada
— to s’guy query, "Is it Murph?": on the cosmic level, please remember, it is always Murph
