If you can walk you can ski!

When I was on the CSU Ski Team, I was always frustrated that I couldn’t keep up with my team mates, mostly because they had started skiing when they were 2 or 3 years old and I didn’t start until I was 13.

So when our kids were born, I told my wife, if they are old enough to walk, they are old enough to ski. You were suppossed to be 3 to enroll in ski school, but I told the instructors they were 3 when they were only 2. My sons today are some of the best skiers anywhere and have skied all over the world.


But years ago I was showing off in the terrain park at Breckenridge. I launched off of one of the huge jumps and shattered my left knee. I couldn’t walk for over 6 months. Once I was able to walk again, my sons looked at me and said, “You know Dad, if you can walk you can ski!”

That’s some of the best advice I’ve ever heard.


Recent Trip to Aspen

Aspen consists of 4 different resorts: Snowmass, Buttermilk (where the X-Games are held), Aspen Mountain (also know as Ajax), and Highlands. Even though I grew up skiing in Colorado, I had never skied Aspen until this year.

The crown jewel of Aspen is Highlands Bowl. The “Bowl” is all double black runs, extremely steep and deep powder. It is about an hour hike to get to the top (no lifts). The hike would be hard even in the summer time, much less doing it in the snow with ski boots, but what a right of passage run! It ranks right up there with the Birds of Prey downhill at Beaver Creek and Corbett’s Coulior at Jackson Hole..

If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when you do.
