I'll ski with that kid anytime! Nice work!
Reminds me of the end of this season. Ski school was done on April 8th, but the season ran strong through the 22nd. With no one to ski with, some of our "graduating" 7 year olds spent their last six or seven days on snow skiing with us - a big crew of twenty and thirty year old instructors. At one point, our SSD saw us in the liftline with the kids, sans parents. The conversation that followed was priceless!
SSD: Still taking the kids up the lift, huh guys?
Me: Well, yeah...we're skiing with them.
SSD: Wait...you're skiing with them for free
Me: H*** yeah! They rip, why not?
As we sat down on the chair, I heard him remark to someone next to him, "My instructors are skiing with the kids on their free time...How awesome
Even more precious was the look on the Ski Patrol director's face as we poached their secret stash with four or five first graders in tow!
