a good day to do scotties
February 27, 2013
Me n Holden n Mark, we few, we happy few, did the early morning thing in Scotties Bowl this morning. And even though the skinner was in, even though we had that Wasangeles feel with headlamps ahead of us and headlamps behind us, and LCC got a foot while other places, you know, like BCC, got mostly nuthin, we still had a pretty good day. On a shot where you pretty much ski 2500 feet of north facing powder car to car.
Just before we dropped out into the bowl, Holden yelled “Hey, there’s a nice air to get out of the chute.”
I said “Um, mandatory?”
And he said “Don’t be such a baby.” And he turned and aired out into the bowl.
The whole drive home, he kept turning to me and saying “Hey Dad . . . Mandatory?”
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Here’s the motion picture version:
