My Harb Story
I'm gonna put you down as a PMTS doubter. scribbling note therusty is not a harold harb fan got it.
I gotta tell this story again. True story. Really!
I met Harb and Diane once at Loveland. Very good skiers, BTW. I was with SCSA and he was just creaming his knickers to introduce them to me. Or is it the other way around? No matter... For those who don't know SCSA, he is a fanatical PMTS supporter. Fanatical is not an overstatement. I have heard it all. "Ski with your feet closer together." "Do a phantom move, Nick." "You can do it." "Paul", I said... "I've been doing that phantom thingy since the phantom was lil' Casper the flickin' Ghost. "Leave me alone."
So we siddle up to Harold and Diane. SCSA says "Hey guys, how's it going. Blah, blah, blah... Oh, by the way this is my friend Nick." They take one look at my tele gear and nod ever so slightly with obvious distain.
SCSA is dying to strut his stuff. "Hey guys, watch me and tell me what you think." SCSA takes off and makes a few turns and then stops at the bottom. Harold looks at Diane and mumbles something. I pretend not to care. I really don't care. Then Harold says to me "Tell Paul his feet are too close together".
I laughed and spit at the same time. They looked a little disgusted at my epilleptic reaction and skied away without a word.
Now I should say that SCSA has really come a long way in his skiing ability... IMVHO. In fact, I would say that there are many would be level III PSIA instructors who wish that they could ski as well as SCSA. He has really found his mojo.
