That, or we could invent a totally new ski teaching regimen.
We'll call it PBST.P
I think I know of a big beer company that might sponsor the whole endeavor. Since it's really the way everybody skis anyway, we'll be wildly successfuly and in a few years PSIA and PMTS will be but faded memories of an irrelevant past.
On a lighter note, thanks to all of you who showed up. It was a wonderful spring day with a bunch of great skiing. Sunshine, firm groomers, soft groomers, soft bumps, soft corn, aspen groves, nobody else skiing the stuff we were, a band and beers on the sundeck, teenage boarder girls in tank tops... what a day.
We did NOT elect a Pope, although Steelman must have felt a little like one while leading the flock on our first couple of high-speed runs. I will say, however, that a shepherd who was truly concerned about the spiritual well-being of his charges might have at *least* warned us about the lip of that one roller.
Zion, you are absolutely right about me taking you up on that offer. As Ruth and I were driving down to Mountain Green, I kept pointing up the mountain going "there" and "there" and "wow", etc. Looks like a very good thing to do. By the way, I'll happily return the favor if you can get yourself up to JH sometime next winter.
Thanks again to all of you. That was probably my last lift-served skiing until next November.
P. S. Lonnie, does Laure know you actually posted that shot of her? Lest our readers be left with an inaccurate impression, I'd just like to point out that lshull's wife is one of the best women skiers you'll ever see. It's a real joy to watch her ski in any conditions. That photo most definitely does *not* represent what she skis like - further illustrating the fact that judging ski techinque or ability based on a single one-one-hundredth of a second image can be a very dubious exercise.
