Sunshine Village hookup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Here's a little feel-good story about meeting new people on the hill.

My circle of skiing buddies is woefully small; that, and my odd schedule, means that I usually ski alone. On my last two trips to Sunshine, though, I have had great luck in meeting up with folks to ski with. I just spent two days skiing with two Calgarians who ski SSV every weekend, an Aussie ex-liftie, and a man with a rabbit on his head (unfortunately, we got seperated at the end of the day, and I couldn't thank them for showing me around). All of them were better skiers than me, and know the mountain better, and I was happy to fall in with a group that have fun, ski hard, and would show me some new and different lines.

In my mind, this is one of the finest aspects of this sport. It draws like minded people together in the world's most beautiful venues to participate in one of the most fun things you can do with your clothes on. People are friendly and helpful, and happy to talk to strangers. If the saying "there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet" is ever true, it's on the ski hill.

Thanks to all those long time skiers who accept we newbies into the club.
