My parents didn't ski so I don't have any early skiing photos of myself. Here are a few from when I was a teenager - LAME, but they are all I have. Hanging around the Christmas tree in my ski duds - SO COOL!

...and that '71 Mustang was HORRIBLE in the snow!

That could have been me about age 14,I had a similar White Stag vest and sweater, Dynastar Tempest, Yellow Munari boots, and best of all HOTFINGERS gloves! I also dig Don's iSki shades. I still remember the faceplant that broke mine :-(

My orange iski sunglasses never fit me well -- either they were crooked or my ears were not even.

Not Here.
^^^ Had them. Must have fired up before I was done dressing. Was it that soggy feeling when your jeans wicked water north or purely an attempt at cool?

Love the pink Flexons!
Those were the VIP Shop boot that year, Magenta, Green and Purple, the next year it became the Vail Promo boot. I was a bit too matchy matchy then.

I had a pair. 1996-ish back when I was working in a shop. They kind of showed up and no one wanted them so I made them mine after my old yellow ones cracked.

I had the same pair of Flexons for 25 years, I changed the liners 4 times and the shells 5 or 6 but they were the same Flexons. ;)
