We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that shreds this snow with me
Shall be my brother; be he never so vile
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in Seattle now in bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
Whom skied with us this powd'ry day!
How well you are able to ski is related to how hard you are willing to fall.
