Lessons Learned While Hitting the Slopes

The following are lessons learned while at Winter Park, Colorado. I hope they are as useful to you as they are to me.

  • Never video-tape crazy, homeless people. It only leads to police involvement.
  • When snowing, always use chains on the tires. Failure to do so will result in you being stuck on a pass for several hours.
  • Altitude sickness can be nasty. Very, very nasty.
  • Avalanches block mountain passes and roads.
  • Always wear a helmet. Failure to do so leads to a concussion.
  • Texas Hold'em is a great way to bring in the New Year.
  • Trees - they hurt.
  • $60 buys a lot of food. Even on the ski slopes.
  • Cold wind is cold.
  • Be weary of the path you choose.

Rock on.
