Re: The Ghee Backside

Ripping good stuff. Were you known back then as "the guy from NJ" (wearing your humble ski origins as a badge of honor) or did you keep that on the down low?

Your lucky to still be alive and walking. You should read the book “Tracking the wild Coomba” - the biography of Doug Coombs.

Re: The Ghee Backside

RA, thanks for sharing your story, I'll bet there are a few guys like you out there. I can think of one of our Hinterlandian crew at least. He had a bit of of ski movie career after being a competitive park skier here in Onterrible. Not sure why he didn't continue in the movies but now he skis trees faster and more fearlessly than anyone I ever seen. I'd like to sit at the table wen you two have a few beers and swap tales of those days.

I'm so thankful for those times, it really was some of the best days of my life.

I could feel the excitement in your words as I was reading them. Thanks for sharing your story, really. I just love reading about self made success stories such as yours.

It also brought back great memories of my bumming days, those too were some of the greatest in my life.

By any chance did you cross paths with Tate MacDowell during your stint with TGR? He was a  cinematographer and editor for them. He was a local CNY Greek Peak ripper. He was just inducted into the TGR Hall of Fame. First non-athlete to do so.

Thanks again for sharing that bro.
