And Royal Mountain is where it all started- My Dad helped build the Mt and started the ski patrol. here's a great video the Alba Family made of our 'secret" Mountain.. http://www.albaadventures.com/adventures/winter/the-queens-secret-a-fairytale-of-skiing-in-ny/
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.
Eddie the EagleI 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.
