On Tuesday we got to ski Aspen Highlands with our ski school friends.
From left to right, Bjorn, Kenny, Blades, Dang and Chris.
We had a great day on the mountain and that night the Wolf Creek boys arrived. The next day was the official Ski Patrol party. Basically you pay $55 for a lift ticket, meals, and all of the beer you can possibly consume between 9am and 2am. We had a blast, but somehow didn't get much skiing in. Everyone dresses up and generally makes fools of themselves.
This is the Wolf Creek crew. Note the vehicle, Tuesday night we lost one of the Wolf Creek boys, he showed up the next morning with this van, the Steamboat patrol's van. Nice work Micheal. The guy leaning against the van on the left in the grey jacket is High Speed Jon Reed, he made us all proud by winning the tranciever drill, he is the guy you want to go back country with.
Yesterday was rough for all involved. Today, however, we are fully recovered, save for a few moments where we remeber what we did and said that fateful night in Aspen.
Now we are in Breckenridge for a couple of days work. Sunday we'll head back down south for Wolf Creek's closing day and then we will head somewhere warmer to celebrate Dan's 32nd birthday.
Dan and Eric on one of their only runs of the day.
