You could use this as a carry-on no problem.
Live for each mountain lake sunset, each night spent marveling at the beauty of the stars, and each sunrise that breaks as we ready for new adventures.

Depends on how big the laptop is. Measure your computer and compare to the dimensions given here, as long as you don't have a 17" behemoth you should be fine.
You are aware that almost all drinking water in houses and business goes through plastic tubing or piping, right?
Yes, you can easily carry skis A frame with this pack.
Really depends on what you have in it. If you pack this thing full then yeah, you will probably have a little trouble being comfortable on the lift, but if you just have skins, a probe, and shovel with maybe a snack or something then you should be fine. If it's too bulky you can always swing the pack around onto your lap while on the lift as well.
With packs it is very important to have a good fit, if you don't have experience with fitting packs yourself I would highly suggest finding a store that carries the packs you are interested in and finding someone to help you measure yourself so you can be sure of the fit. Also trying on packs is key, as just because they numbers work doesn't mean it will fit your body well. Good luck!
Primus Eta pots should work fine with the Whisperlite stove.
I haven't used the rain cover on this specific pack, but I have on other packs, including some built in Osprey ones. The built in rain covers are great, they have a separate pocket they zip into when not in use, and it's a cinch to pull them out and buckle them on when needed. That being said, and this applies to all rain covers, you just don't get very serious weather protection from a rain cover. They will protect your pack in mist, light rain, or for a little while in heavier rain, but there is a huge tendency for water to get in on the back of your backpack (The part of your pack against your back, where the rain cover stops). If you want to be truly waterproof use a pack liner (I use a contractor trash bag) on the inside of your pack, and make sure anything not inside that can either get wet or is in waterproof stuff sacks.
According to this guy it comes in at 16.4 ounces. Ouch. (http://woodtrekker.blogspot.com/2012/12/hydro-flask-40oz-insulated-bottle-review.html)
Women's specific packs are generally designed with narrower shoulder attachment points, smaller waist belts, possibly a differently shaped lumbar support, shorter back length, differently place chest strap, and other possibly modifications. There are obviously certain people who might be more comfortable in a pack designed for the opposite sex (such as a very tall wide shouldered women using a mens pack, or a slim man finding a womens pack to fit better), but in general I think you're best off using gender specific packs if they are available.
Belt sizing for spacecraft: (in): S (26-30), M (30-34), L (34-38). So either large or medium could probably work for you.
Try chatting with a gearhead by clicking the "live chat" link at the top of the page, they will be able to help you out quicker and possibly get you what you are looking for. I see that they are on sale for $38 now, and the image you gave as proof shows no prices, just slashed original prices. Good luck.
These are Authentic VANS, not sure why the title says (copy) in it, probably a formatting error from whenever this product page was created.
There very well maybe shops that carry these pants in NY, but you won't find a Backcountry.com shop. The only physical location they have is the warehouse store in SLC. So you can either order here, or try to find a physical store that might carry them. Good luck!
I'm going to go out on a limb and say the Super Mica will be much more water resistant then this guy, and for longer.
Yup, L waist (36 - 39in) with a 32" inseam.
Just almost everyone is... Kuhl Stocks 34" and 36" inseams on their website though, maybe just order directly from them?
I haven't personally used this, though I mountain bike a lot, and have with plenty of different backpacks. I'd say if this bag works for regular bike commuting (which it is designed for) I see no reason why it wouldn't work for mountain bike commuting as well.
I think you might be trying to use these packs for a slightly different then intended use. They are designed to be ski backpacks in the sense that you wear them while skiing, often in backcountry terrain. You would be wearing your ski boots and skis in this scenario. In your pack you would keep your shovel, probe, skins, snacks, water, extra layers, etc. If you had to hike up something steep and took your skis off to put crampons on your boots you could also attach your skis to this pack. In no scenario do I see a need to put your ski boots "in" this pack. If you are looking for something to keep your ski gear in while driving up to the ski mountain/walking from your car to the lodge I think you might want something more along the line of this: http://www.backcountry.com/dakine-dlx-boot-pack-4880cu-in?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6Ym9vdCBwYWNrOjE6Mjpib290IHBhY2s
