bos on narrowest drop ever - Utah -
"At least Utah has equally crappy snow to Kirkwood right now..." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Can anyone make a map for the Tahoe ski resorts like to one in this post--> -
"Picture a big circle around almost the entire resort with the word "sucks"..." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on 1-3in snow forecasted in Soda Springs on Friday. Chances of chain restrictions on the way up to Truckee? -
"50 is terrible too, but because of tourist traffic rather than the combination of tourists and trucks." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Went chuting this afternoon... -
"Skip Brighton and go to Solitude or Snowbird if you can." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Ski shop did a bad job installing bindings on brand new skis. Now what? -
"In SF, I use Mountain West. They're good." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Unique flexible sport goggles -
"More than just a ski goggle, they're a prophylactic too — you're practically guaranteed never to get laid by anyone who finds out you own a pair." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Does a high performance ski boot make a huge difference? -
"Around or just after the end of the season. Prices have not yet dropped quite as far as they will then." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Broke My Ankle -
"I broke my fibula skiing a few years ago too. Not to be a downer, but you can almost certainly forget about skiing again this season. It's very hard to move your ankle at all without severe pain while the bone heals, and it's going to hurt for a couple of months just doing basic stuff like walking once you can articulate the ankle. Anyway, with that slightly more realistic set of expectations in mind, it's rarely a complicated fracture. I was back rock climbing after a few months, and had no problem skiing hard the following season. Good luck!" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on After 30 years of skiing, my dad literally broke his ski boot. -
"I'm surprised they lasted that long. Plastics generally become brittle with age and exposure to sunlight. If it's any consolation to your dad, modern boots are approximately 1,000,000 times less shitty than his broken antiques." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on How is the West coast doing? Any snow in the next couple weeks forecast? -
"The Pacific-North American teleconnection is forecast to go negative around the end of the month. This favours storms down the west coast. Too early for weather forecasts to show anything yet since we're talking about storms in early March, but it's the first positive sign we've seen in a while." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Whoever created the @HaskellCEO account on twitter… -
"I think this account is extremely unfortunate. The Haskell community online already has a deservedly bad reputation because it fails to respond coherently to trolls and wannabe members who are consistently rude and non-constructive. The number of such people is small, but they're unfortunately very energetic and drag Haskell further into disrepute with each new [stupid stunt]( Furthermore, if you're on the outside, you're going to have no idea that this is a very clumsy parody, and are likely to be further put off. So by all means find it funny if you wish, but I won't be laughing with you. It's puerile." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Exterminator woods at sugarbush were breathtaking this weekend -
""Tahoe gets dumped on" = I was wringing out my gloves and pants after an hour. You didn't miss much." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Hiked on top of alta/bird(baldy). Where's the snow UT? -
"It's not that different. I was out there a couple weekends ago, and was dodging rocks at Snowbird and Solitude just like back home at Kirkwood." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Searching for powder off-piste in Les Arcs, France. They were having a bad winter until it snowed continuously for the last 2 days of the trip. -
"Fun, but also lucky you all made it back out in one piece, given how bad the avy conditions have been in the Alps after the recent storms." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on California ladies and gentlemen.... :( -
"It's snowing down to lake level right now, let's hope that persists!" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Haskell Jobs: FP Complete is Hiring Test Engineers -
"I submit that this is a suboptimal way to build a team. Dividing responsibilities between developers and test people creates a two-tier system, where the devs and the test people each believe that the devs are on the upper tier. On top of that, it allows developers a get-out-of-jail-free card in the form of not giving so much thought to how their code could be structured to be testable. (Yes, it can be made to sort of work in practice, but I would never structure a team this way myself.)" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on My brother convinces my husband to jump the ski boundary... it doesn't end well. (Ski Santa Fe) -
"I hope the local ski patrol doesn't read reddit. Or that if they do, they're very chill :-)" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Haskell opportunities at Facebook -
"Facebook hires large numbers of interns. If you're interested in learning more about our internship programmes, [please read on](" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Haskell opportunities at Facebook -
"We do both, yes." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Haskell opportunities at Facebook -
"Not unless you're an exceptional candidate on several fronts, I'm afraid." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Haskell opportunities at Facebook -
"It might be a possibility for the second of the two teams, for which we're open to a wider range of experience." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Visiting Utah. Have a couple questions. -
"Get yourself an SLC area pass for however many days you need. This will get you into all four Cottonwood resorts (Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude), and let you ride the buses for free. All are worth a visit. Brighton is the least interesting/fun, but you can ski in from Solitude, decide if you like it, and ski back out again if you don't." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Help me make my NEW bike more "playful" -
"For a truly “playful” bike, [there is only one reasonable option](" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Hello! I have a question about ski length. -
"For you, any kind of low-end ski with integrated bindings is going to be fine. You'll want it to come about up to your chin or nose when you're both standing upright. Your local ski shop might have ex-rental skis to sell. Until you're a more capable skier, there is little point in buying much more than a pair of beaters." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Looking for advice on skiing solitude/brighton? -
"Brighton gets much bigger crowds than Solitude, and they're mostly newbies. Plan to spend a lot of time dodging people. Brighton also has much worse snow coverage than Solitude at the moment (both are very thin), so unless some storms start to deliver in the next month, expect all the fun terrain to be closed, and bring your rock skis. At Solitude, the best terrain is much more protected from the sun, so it'll last longer if it stays dry and warm. (I vastly prefer Solitude to Brighton, but opinions may differ.)" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on You guys in the US are making me jealous. Anyone for the Alps today? -
"If it's any comfort, the only part of the U.S. that is in unambiguously good shape at the moment is Colorado. Snow levels are below to *way* below average all across the West, and the East isn't in good shape either." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Downhill Skiing Help!!! -
"Well, let's be a bit more charitable and clear here: by the standards of the ski industry, being able to make it down a blue or easy black run without killing yourself, and then coming back to spend more money again, *does* qualify you as an intermediate skier. So if someone calls themselves an intermediate skier because a cleaned-up version of this is the only definition they've ever heard, it's a little cruel to tell them off." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on 2 Scots coming to Sugarbowl March 9th -
"March is usually good in Tahoe; in fact it's almost been the only good month the past few seasons. Truckee is a nice town to hang out in. If you're staying more than a few days, take two of them and visit Alpine and Squaw for some variety." - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Anyone ever had knee pain and how did you address it? -
"I had knee pain for a few months last year. Moved my saddle backwards an inch and the pain promptly disappeared. It is of course not always that simple, but I hope something that straightforward will work for you z" - Bryan O'Sullivan
bos on Tahoe residents: who has the best conditions right now? -
"We are expecting record high temps this week, so it's going to be more like skiing over a Slurpee that's been dumped on a pile of gravel." - Bryan O'Sullivan
