A committed skied

We're walking in our neighborhood and the man is cleaning up dry plants from his yard. He says hi, we ask what he's doing; he tells us and then goes “I skied 153 days last winter...” and we begin a long conversation. John lives in Park City but hardly ever skis around town. Instead, he's been skiing some 130 times in Alta, our Utah “Cult” resort that, in winter, is about one hour drive – each way – from his home. Talk about dedication!

This, with a spouse that works at our great Deer Valley Resort and seems to have a very hard time to get him to ski there with her! To top this all, our man is 10 year older than I, yes, well into his seventies. There's lots of hope in this world!
