    Video Pico, VT 12/25/26 and Okemo,VT -

    Our season took a wrong turn - now trying to make the best of it. Keep your knees healthy - this one was hard for us to produce. Hope to see you at PICO.



    Wishes -

    With blurred vision
    We are not sure how this happened
    It was the perfect day with close friends
    Sam
    Sarah
    And Winter
    The skiing seemed perfect
    Our winter has only begun and sadly it may now be lost

    Having a ski house and holidays brings no shortage of great company
    Celebrating the birth and the lights
    With song, laughter, and endless food
    These distractions were welcome.

    With snow in the forecast
    And our friends in town in from the Big Apple
    We met up with Tony, Seneca, Lyra, Brigit
    And set out to play at PICO
    Kyle dropping knee
    Jen hitting bumps
    The kids and I
    And Chris hitting Pike
    We skied till dark then went to celebrate New Years Eve…
    Needless to say, we were all in rare form


    On New Year’s Day
    Alicia, Nevada and I set off to Ludlow
    To see the town and take our minds off skiing
    With Okemo in the backdrop
    We can only remember our great day there just 2 weeks ago
    The mountain was just delightful and we had hoped to go back there this season.

    We return to our winter home
    And prepare to make way back to NYC
    Heartbroken, afraid, unsure
    One wishes for things
    One wishes for money
    Our wishes are for health
    And for Alicia to recover quickly

    So, we can all ski as a family again

    Ahh, that sucks! Did your wife get an x-ray or anything?

    I skied most of last winter with knee braces due to an early (minor) knee injury. Maybe with knee braces your wife can get back on the mountain a little sooner.

    You know I have no ACL in my left leg and my right - well I have injured it so many times - so I brace both legs. I have a brace for her - though her knees were perfect up to now. We will figure out how the next few weeks pan out.

    This weekend looks to be a washout from yesterday's rain and melt. Bummed. Heading up today from NYC.. Might drop by Killy- we will see..

    This edit was hard to make though those that endured it (laughing) have personally written us saying - "your story telling has gotten so much better" -

    What we are seeing is that the retention is higher on these longer edits - which is crazy- fewer views, but those that have seen this and our edits from the last year (versus three years ago) - This one was really hard to make.. It was not supposed to be so serious...

    Alicia is in good spirits though. She watched The Climb - the Lyndsay Vonn story (she is a Libra like me) and Alicia got very motivated to get back in shape to ski. No surgery in the picture yet though we will not know for a few more weeks.

    I will ping you later!

    as·cent
    /əˈsent/
    1. a climb or walk to the summit of a mountain or hill.


    Some ascents are harder than others, and at times you might be able to find shortcuts to summit quicker. With injuries, all ascents seem impossible though you still must try to know how to improve or what decisions to make.

    Our latest episode ASCENT is one we are sure you can relate too. We have all experienced injuries, some that change you forever. This is start of Alicia's journey to be able to ski again with family and friends after tearing her ACL.

    We hope you enjoy this edit and if you like, that you might subscribe to our channel.

    Thank you,
