    Is that as silly as the neon colors back in the 80′s! Today I ran across a photo of me on a spring ski summit wearing a pink t-shirt and pink leopard-stripe bandana on my head in 1989. As I recall my Asolo Super Comp boots had pink straps original equipment as well.

    Randonee — i’d sport more pink but my wife shops for me and knows better!

    Dave:
    Add a matching pin stripe jacket with a big number on it and the outfit would scream, “prisoner on the loose”.
    Nice to meet you today.

    Skiing in pyjamas is now Coo-ell.

Got something to say? Please do so.
