Today I learned a vital lesson…“No friends on a powder day.” Myself, Chris Apmann (Antler’s engineer extraordinaire), Aaron (Apmanns’ engineer tag-team partner), and JP (ex-Antler employee) met in the hotel lobby this morning. It was Vail’s 4th early season powder day in a row and we were ready to rock. Antler’s rookie, Nick Kelley, couldn’t find his way out of the garage so we left him behind…not to be heard from for the rest of the day. We also forgot to wake up Eric Rust (Director of First and Last Impressions)…he is still complaining. Fresh tracks and two runs into our adventure Aaron broke his goggles and we were down to 3 from our original “too many.” Chris, JP, and I were one of the first groups to ride Northwoods/North Rim. It was by far the best day of snow in Vail this season, until I got ditched by Chris and JP. Unlike Eric, I can’t complain….“No friends on a powder day.”
