    BTW, Andy: Did you try to catch everyone in their worst possible moment?! Our form is bad the first day, but not that bad!

    Also, you owe me $3. I'm expecting it to be in the mail by 4pm today... Anyway, thanks for organizing the groups tickets. Did you end up selling the last two tickets?
    You're OK Austin.

    And despite my occasional ball busting you're an excellent skier too.

    Thanks for the stub, that was the strangest thing to have lost my ticket while out on the mountain, and it would have sucked to have had to buy another ticket. Wouldn't you know that such a thing would have happened on my birthday of all days. From now on I am keeping the stub with me after I buy my ticket.

    I'll try my best to meet up with you guys at Sundown, but it will be alot harder as Warren now goes to school in coventry and I work in Bloomfield, so the drive to pick him up and then go back to sundown would be $$$$$$ in gas. I will probably do a few trips solo when they have a decent amount of the mountain opened, especially gunbarrel.

    It was great to get out and meet some new AZers. I was impressed my the quality of the snow for this early in the season. Thinking about heading back on Thursday. I did a few runs on Chute before lunch, it was nice but bumps aren't my thing and they wrecked me. Spent the afternoon cruising the main face until I left at 2. Awesome day.

    I also lost my ticket sometime during the first run. Fortunately nobody asked to see it for the rest of the day.

    Thanks Jim. Also thanks to yesterday I figured out what I need to work on with my skiing. Even though I skied over 10 runs done Chute I didn't wipeout or even come close once. If you don't fall you aren't pushing yourself hard enough. At the Huntah gathering I will make it a point to ski a lot faster and harder. That basically what you told me yesterday, right? I wasn't really listening, but I think I heard you say something about how skiing faster improves your technique.

    I like the way you think Austin. BTW, that was one hell of a display you put on yesterday. Very good bump skiing.

    I told Greg that sometimes you have to slow down to speed up.

    Slow down long enough to keep from flinging yourself down a line so you can smooth out and not be a rocket just deflecting bumps without any ski rotation.

    Good bumpers have an awesome mix of quick complete turns and good A&E.

    And you would enjoy watching a World Cup bump event live...those guys ski FAST.
