looks like something I'd have to be fearfully (before), gratefully
(after - one hopes), and firmly (by someone else) "encouraged" to try.

Also reminds me of Guido's "push the envelope" shot at
Brighton--depending on just how steep the dropoff is behind that little
mini-horizon in the photo that intersects Matt's belly.

But what about the terrain on page 75? Any idea where that is? Looks
scrumptious. Assuming I could keep my skis _on_ the ground.

Youch. It's always bugged me that I didn't connect on how far from the
top (especially on molasses-paced Spruce lift) you were when you offered
to wait for me and daughter Laura. (I'll nominate a SkiVittle Award to
"Best Friend on a Powder Day": Jerm). Not sure whether realizing what
other skiing I was keeping you _from_ makes it better or worse!

Nice one. Here's hoping you get the opportunity to deliver it.

Folks, the nights are cool. I'm starting to feel like it won't be long
