Powder - - POSTHOLE -

Are you f—ing kid­ding me? That’s the first thought that came to my mind when I turned to page 38 of the Fe­bru­ary 2018 is­sue (46.5), which is the Gear Locker guide to $119 jeans and $220 shoes. I read Pow­der for pow­der. I can open up a Macy’s cat­a­log if I want to know what kind of skinny jeans I should tuck in­side my boots. Maybe it’s a hid­den puz­zle called, “Who can find the real skier?”

Dude No. 1: “I used to ski be­fore I hurt my back. That’s why I stand with my hands on the back of my hips like this.”

Dude No. 2: “I can’t fig­ure out why my feet are get­ting wet in my wa­ter­proof, breath­able, taped seam, anti-mi­cro­bial boots.”

Dude No. 3: “It’s be­cause you cuffed your pants. You need to tuck them in your boots like I do with my skinny jeans.”

Dude No. 4: “You clowns are un­be­liev­able. I got my 501’s at Tar­get for $39.99. Are you re­ally sell­ing them for $119?”

I was think­ing about can­cel­ing my sub­scrip­tion un­til I fig­ured out the puz­zle. Thanks! Jim Faull
