When I saw my first Warren Miller movie about four years ago, I first saw PNH. I saw Seth Westcott boarding off knife-edged peaks on steep runs with great snow, when I heard you describing why people come and come back to PNH, and when I saw the spectacular place, I said to myself, "I want to do that".
I was in no place to do something like that at that time. I had been backcountry skiing for about 6 years, so I was comfortable with skiing off-trail and out of bounds. But I had never done anything close to what I saw in that movie. I started going to the gym, for the first time in my life. I started yoga. And I skied as much as I could. Now I have been there, done that. In 2 times at PNH, I have made 88 runs. I have had the best run of my life. The best ski day of my life and the best week of my life (all last year). Every day I have spent there has been a good day. The confidence that I have gained has made me such a better skier at home, or anywhere else for that matter. I have absolutely nothing to prove to myself or anyone else. As far as I am concerned, doing what I have done at PNH, and all that was involved in getting there, is the supreme achievement of my life. That is why the PNH hat is so significant to me and why I wear it every day. My picture on facebook, which jmack took of me last year, is on my wall and is the trophy of my life.
I just want to enjoy flying around in the helicopter, skiing like nowhere else, enjoying your incredible hospitality and your wonderful extended family, meeting so many friends and interesting people, in a place like no other. You and Kevin are the best. No expectations, live in the moment.
