We're totally those weirdos who wake up earlier to ski on the weekend than we might for work. It's call priorities. Many of us may not even recall our first day on skis. We do recall hot chocolate bribery, meeting legends in the lift line at Squaw and Homewood - Jimmie Huega, Steve McKinney, Julia Mancuso, Daron Rahlves to name a few - and dark cold early mornings filled with excited anticipation. Skiing is in our veins. It is a part of who we are. Show your love for your favorite winter sport, and get ready to wax your skis and sharpen those edges. Pray for snow - winter is coming.
