Wedding of the (ski) season

From yesterday's NY Times society section:

Perhaps this belongs in the "meet on the hill" section, but take a look at the guest list!

dp,
I saw that piece, too. Very cool. But I was confused about the part where it said theyski with their dogs. How does one do that? Meaning the dogs actually galumph down all the powder and off-piste stuff while they're zooming down the mountain? How could they keep up? (Well, I guess that's why they call 'em Bernese Mountain dogs.)

My Nephew skis with his dog all the time in the back country. Diego loves it. He is a small dog and follows in his tracks both up and down the mountain. I'm pretty sure the dogs aren't skiing with Andrew on some of his steeper chutes. Most likly it is just when he is playing in the back country.

very cool wedding; someone down here in Philly had a wedding at a Dunkin Donuts on Friday I believe. They won some contest that DD was running.

Deja Vu! Although I would have opted for photos in anything but that Wedge!:

Hey Gonzo- great line!! Of course, maybe they served donuts at the reception!

By the way, have you ever seen his book, The Chuting Gallery? It is really unbelieveable that people have the nerve to ski some of those lines. Here is a link to the website with some examples: http://www.pawprince.com/pawprince/w.../tcg_home.html

The forward by the late Alex Lowe (probably the greatest all-around mountaineer of our time before his tragic death in an avalanche on Shishapangma) is great, too.

dp, we skinny guys have to look up to McLean, he shows us that you don't need to be as big as Hermann or Bode to ski well.

Very true, Gonzo- and I bet he can climb better than both of them put together!

McLean even impresses us old fat guys he is a rather shy soft spoken man. Talk about letting your skiing do your talking for you.
