Skiing has never been this fun

February 7, 2009

I thought I had skied some of the most extreme terrain yesterday at Moonlight Basin, until today when we skied The Ridge at Bridger Bowl. A new lift at Bridger make accessing this terrain a cinch- Dave felt like he was cheating. The hike is mangable, but the skiing is unreal. I honestly don’t think I’ve even been in that steep and technical ever. And considering this was a bad snow day and I came down grinning from ear to ear just further makes me want to ditch the high cost of Aspen and make Montana my home.

Ski films galore

October 4, 2008

We are at the Wheeler Opera House watching movies as part of The Meeting. The first one, Massive, was a Tanner Hall film. It had some good skiing, but the overall film itself was slow and the attempt at creating a story line was unsucsessful. Claim by Matchstick on the otherhand was their best film since Ski Movie I. The combination of fantastic lines, destinations, and good intro skits made for a great movie. The highlight was Colby West lipsinging to “Its not Unusual.” He was entertaining on stage as well. Now I am definitely ready to ski !
