I'm not a man of wealth, and my taste is questionable, but I do love to ski. Mainly, in Vail and Mammoth, for the past 25 years, and a little bit at Pajarito before that. I took up skiing as an adult. My wife and her family were really into the ski racing scene. After many years of sucking, I am now an advanced skier. I am definitely not an expert. Taking the year off but hoping to live vicariously through tales of debauchery and glory here on SkiTalk.
