At the chair hanging left of the tower, the metal hoop frames 3 skiers at the penguin launch ramp. 2004 was a big winter.

I have no action shots, which is a shame, because they’d be hilarious. I spent several years Z-turning around the mountain, LOL.
This is in 1998 at Winter Park. I had just learned to ski the year before and in ‘98 I had a season pass at WP while going to school in Boulder. I don’t know where on the mountain this pic was taken; somebody probably could tell me.

The next pic was taken somewhere near Eldora (CO), on a backcountry ski outing. If somebody knows exactly where this is, I’d love to know.

I had to throw this next one in. Who can name the guy I’m with? ;) This was in the early ‘90’s, when I was doing a lot of nordic skiing.

@newboots and @Sibhusky they were the greatest generation, and if it wasn't for men like them who knows what the world would be like.
Totally agree. My uncle served in the Navy in the Pacific theatre during WW2. Never talked about it, and he was always the best storyteller. After his death I found a long diary of his, describing all his experiences in the Pacific. Now I know why he didn’t talk about it.
