Ski day 19: Riding with old friends

Vert: 4,935 m    YTD cum vert: 102,550 m
Runs: 13    YTD cum runs: 246

As SnowHost, I occasionally run into folks I know in the Gondola lineup. Today, I ran into my friends Andy and Shannon with their kids. Andy used to work for me, and has been skiing Sunshine far longer than I have. The whole family are very good skiers. Their kids have even run laps in the Dive.

So this afternoon, having no tours to lead, I hooked up with them, and we ran some fun stuff all over the mountain, including some pretty gnarly pitches I'm not allowed to take tours on.

In the afternoon, Andy led me to places he skied as a kid.

No wonder he's better than me.
