Back in '97, I was in my skiing prime. I skied often, and I skied well. I wasn't scared of driving in the snow and I only wrecked my little Subaru twice that year. Sometimes I'd leave school right after lunch and run up to Park City to get a few hours of good midweek skiing in. Life was good. Now that you know how cool I am, you can picture me riding the lift, looking down at the skiers below. Every once in a while, I'd see an awesome skier down below wearing something like this.
Anyway, I'd think to myself, "Why would such a great skier be wearing such dated clothes? Seriously dude, you deserve better stuff." I mean who were these people? Well, the other day, I got out our snow clothes and I sadly realized that I, am 'these people.' 'These people' are just good skiers who grew up and moved away and now only get to ski a couple of times a year. I love the outfit that I used to ski in. A lavender shell and pair of dark purple snow pants. Could I still wear that without looking like a dork? I don't care. What I want to know is, what are all you East Coasters doing with cutting edge snow apparel?
