Saw the new Warren Miller movie "Children of Winter" last night. Pretty much what you come to expect, pow porno, a bit of cheese, kids slashing and burning it up along with a few nice narratives. Wonderful story at the end of a sailing and ski touring trip around Iceland.
However the main event for me was to see Gerry Lopez carving it up at Mt. Bachelor in Oregon where he now lives. We all grew up idolising Mr. Lopez and his surfing at Pipeline. I even had a board with a lightning bolt on it, he was the man.
I love snow and the mountains but somehow it is hard to reconcile Lopez giving up having Pipeline at his backdoor to move to the mountains. Still seems to work for him, he is one contented zen master dude.
