Tough to teach the kid to slide - on skis - when neither of us ski. So, we improvise. He's been riding my board - we rocked the full 1,600 feet of Eldora's face last week - together - on one board. Problem is - that's illegal. Beer favors and relationships aside - it's not a long term solution. So, The Dude of Dudes was up on skis today with 2 clueless parent who only know how to knuckle drag. He literally stepped off the lift - and killed it. Made me proud. Now we have to get him on an evolved sliding device - like a nice fatty 168. Bwahahahahahah.
Skis or board, in area or backcountry - hell - he can rock the nordic shit and smuggle almonds all day. The kid will grow up with a ski area - in his yard. I can think of nothing cooler.
