Thanks for the link, jc-ski.  Thumbs Up

 

This is really a fun film to watch with some great background video.   

 

Wade and I have known each other for decades.  He was one of my two primary inspirations when I got my own knees replaced a year after his.

 

He's an extremely talented photographer and all-around cool guy.

He seems like it - cool guy, that is. And his photos are amazing!

 

He certainly has created a life for himself that I, (and I suppose many others), envy greatly!

 

"Forty years later ... I'm still here, still doing it ... and I'm still fired up about it!"

I'll raise a glass to that!   :beercheer:

Wade is a super cool guy. His photos in part inspired me to be a ski bum.

I was familiar with McKoy from Swift, Silent, Deep, but even though I'm sure I've seen his photography in various ski mags I was curious to see more. He and a partner have a web site, and there's an incredible amount of great stuff there! This set of Coombs pics alone is definitely worth a visit! Wow!  Thumbs Up
