Do these skis make my ass look fast? – Bumper Sticker
Wow is it fun to watch Jeff on the slopes! Whether he is attacking the moguls, or carving beautiful S-curves in the snow, it is all like a finely choreographed dance between him and the mountain. I guess being born and raised in Aspen will do that to you.
At one point during skiing today, I was standing near a couple at the top of a rather precariously steep section of moguls (think: ice, rock, snow snakes, bodies strewn everywhere). The woman said to her husband that she wasn’t sure she could do it – fear and logic were taking over any sense of pride. At that point, Jeff comes zooming by – cruising through the moguls like they were child’s play. After Jeff passed us, I overhead the guy say to his wife: “See, there you go honey. Simple as that. Just follow him. No problem!” You see, that’s why I like skiing with Jeff. He makes for such a good distraction on the ski runs that others hardly notice me plodding along in poor form right behind him…
