Mr. Plake, I'm a reasonably normal, heterosexual male in his late thirties. Ever since I began skiing about 15 years ago I've wanted to ski with you. I used to take weekend trips to local New England ski resorts and I'd watch the RSN channel or ski movies. It seemed without exception that I would see you meeting people, skiing, climbing etc.. with the most infectious enthusiasm. You helped me realize how much fun skiing could be. As I got older and my skiing got better and life a little more stressful I appreciate that enthusiasm and zest for life that much more. Now I ski 60 days a year and share in a ski house. I still enjoy seeing "reel thrills" "the down home tour" or anything else you are in.
I will be in Heavenly March 3rd- 9th it would be an honor to take a couple of runs with you and something that is on my bucket list.
Hopefully this will find you and you are around during those dates.
I hope you are well you bring me great pleasure in just doing what you do. Cheers!!
