“The first time I skied the tram, because that was last year. And when I went to [a] ski patrol dog presentation—I learned that the ski patrol dogs can dig people out of avalanches.”

“When Challenger [chairlift] first opened in 1988. John Kircher and Scott Bowen were loading the chairs, and [the snow] was like wet cement. I don’t remember the date exactly, but we had so much fun—I was with a bunch of friends. I was probably in over my head at that point.”

“Deep Tuesday: 12/12/12. The best day I’ve ever had up there. That was one time that we got over a foot of snow overnight. And it was raining down here [in the Meadow], so everyone was like, ‘I’m not going up there.’ Tuesday, December 12th, 2012. The deepest day ever.”

“My favorite memory is probably the winter of 07/08 and I was a lifty at Moonlight Basin. We had a really good crew and it was really laid back—it was back when Lee Poole owned it—so there were lots of employee parties and everyone had a really good time. It was my first big mountain experience and I got up right up into Headwaters [Cirque] just as soon as I could.”
