great powder skiing

      yeah it helps. in certain spots we’re pretty much there, and i’ve started to charge. but i really need to know those spots. elsewhere around the mountain though still survival skiing. we’re getting close though!!

    Why with all this powder aren’t you guys jumping off of anything? Getting too old? Do you need us to come back east and show you where all the drops are again?
