We always film when my son and I ski together over Christmas. This year the conditions were not great. But we got some good footage. Enjoy!!!

Looks can be deceiving. LOL. A lot of the dreaded freezing rain. If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of ice against edges. But it's way better to listen to the good 'ol GD from 1990. Pretty two weeks, but the skiing was mediocre.

I literally wrote that to the Athletes my Freeride program (135), today. The worst freezing rain was last Friday, and was just barely ended by snow overnight into Saturday. Awful skiing, but the show must go on.

So today I told them it just makes us all better skiers getting out there on crappy days.
