Flattered

Sure some of you have seen this article. There are some errors though it took us by total surprise. Just want to say thanks to you and of course Harvey for being supportive of us.

Re: Flattered

Nice, Ray! Congrats.

Health, family and skiing. Perhaps, the three most important things in life?

Nice article!  Well deserved.  The reason I explored Pico before Killington was because of your family's videos.  You always have so much fun.  Know of at least one skier who lives in VT who read the article with interest.

Care to correct an error here?

All minor and does not take away from the story.  

- Misspelled last names - Erlandsen instead of Urlantsen and Maclauchlan instead of Maclauchlain (though that was close).
- Film school - though I did attend NYU - I didn't study film there - though not a big deal as I had plans to take a summer film program there this year. The interviews were late at night - so, I could understand. Also being NYers with accents and speaking fast - its easy to make this minor mistake.
- 60 days at Pico - we did 60 days in total this year with about 40 at Pico. With living in NYC and our condo lease - we had 64 possible days for skiing this winter - we hit most of the days we could get out this season..

Thanks for being always supportive MarzNC !

ALso, tthanks to everyone for reading this. Still totally flattered.

I don't post here much, but i have always enjoyed watching your videos that you make. I am very sorry about the loss of your son Rocky. Skiing together as a family is a wonderful thing.

Awesome story, Ray. I understand the desire to correct mistakes, especially when the people in the article will read it. Years ago, in a newspaper article about the outfitter I worked for, the writer gave credit for work I had done to the owners wife. Didn't really impact my life in any way but it bugged me a little. On the other side of it, I'm awful at remembering everybodys' screen names when I meet a bunch of people from the forum all at once. Anybody I've left out of a blog post or TR, I apologize.

Thank you Mi Skier. We actually got Rocky on a ski sled that we made for him - though winters were rough on him. Alicia and I stopped skiing Feb 1, 2001. We then looked to only summer and warm weather activities to the point we were sick of winter. Rocky was a fighter and we know he is with us in spirit. We see him in our kids, and in our daughter in many ways. Not a day goes that we don't think about him..

Coming back to skiing in 2010 - I recalled all the great days I would ski with my dad, my uncle and cousins and my wife recalled all the great memories we made while skiing.  We love skiing and your are right on - there are few things that can compete with skiing as a family

We can't thank you enough for watching our videos - and for sure hope one day we an meet up skiing.
