are you ready for...
The Deckster Quiz
(so you think you're really a Deckster ?)

This test rates your Deckster knowledge and, consequently, your overall skiing/riding/drinking/partying ability.

Note: A perfect score is 300. No mere mortal has ever achieved this.
If somehow you manage to do it, please report it to Vicky so that Charles can be notified. He will then most likely refer you to the proper authorities for an appropriate reward.
And don't say I didn't warn you !
