Hi achilles, don't I know you from somewhere else?
Welcome one and all.
I'm kinda new here too, and well known for being shy, retiring and quiet. I don't post that much either...
I don't think I've ever introed myself either. Darn in anyhow
Anyways. I live in the wonderful state of Montana.
Been skiing since I can remember (which my dad tells me I was about 3 when I started). So a little over 20 years now.
Grew up skiing Big Mountain and I can remember when it was Chair 1 (before the quad), there was no back side and skiing it when it opened and the night skiing lights made the shape of a Seal which used to be Big Mtn's logo (and I think they still do).
I mostly ski MT, but do make a trip to other places at least once a year.
I used to be an instructor at a little mom & pop mtn called Deer Mountain in Lead, SD (anyone heard of it?) worked there for about 4 seasons, moved to Terry Peak (just down the road from Deer) and worked 1 season there. Moved back to MT and let all my certs lapse.
I'm in the MT National Guard, and did a active duty stint too. Got to ski in Korea.
Sorry bout the bio. Just a little background I guess..
I’ve been lurking here for a while too. Skied at A-Basin and Breckenridge last April with Uncle Louie and a bunch of the bears. Great People. Hope to make it to LGC III this April.
This site is very addictive, especially now waiting for the snow to fall.
