"I feel very blessed to have been able ski at all this year, as I almost died in a mountain bike accident last September. I spent two weeks bed/lazboy ridden and spent many months rehabbing my leg. I really didn't get my ski legs until March. My most memorable day this season was my first day on the slopes with my wife and two of my four kids. This includes a number of knee deep plus powder days. The snow conditions didn't really matter to me, I was just glad to be on the slopes with my wife and kids."
You got me thinking about this, was it my first day of the season at the shoe w/my best bud, maybe the trip to Utah where I made some new friends at The Canyons.....first trip ever to Laurel Mountain (with freshies, btw).......meeting DCSkiers at Snowy Luau, no it has to be skiing freshies on closing day at TLine
March 26 at 7springs, took two friends who'd only been on skis three times, one 49 year old the other 11 (his son). Skied a couple greens and watched the little guy in the woods, hitting little jumps, skis parallel always facing down the hill, a real turner. We stopped at the top of wagner slope and I asked him if he could ski it, he went first and made six nice turns and stopped TO WAIT FOR ME
. I'll never forget that day.
