Dew Tour Highlights - Day 1

The word of the day was, “Wow!” Actually, that’s the cleaned up Rated G version for mum. You do the math.  But it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the view looking up from the Bear Lodge was impressive. In a way it was surreal—like looking up at a super-model, pinching yourself and thinking, “Is this real? Maybe it’s just a dream.”  It was obvious The Resort brought their A-Game. Kudos to the mountain ops crew for Dew’in the whole area proud.

More importantly the vibe was neighborly if not bordering on festive. Sure it was just a practice day but none the less there was plenty of feelin’ groovy to go around. As the athletes trudged back up the pipe most of them were quick to say, “Hello,” and, “The pipe is great.” If anyone knows what’s about to happen in the next couple days it’s them. Worried about the weather they were not.

So it’s gonna be cold, so what? That’s why it’s called winter. These elite world class athletes are about to put their bodies in harm’s way just so we can be entertained. The least you can do is slap on an extra layer or two, suck it up, and get your ass out there to cheer them on. Or do you wanna be the fool who says, “I could have been there but I didn’t want my tootsies to get cold. I stayed home and watched it on TV.” Are you sure you wanna be that guy/gal?

Alright then, let’s cut the small talk and dive into some photos. Don’t forget to take advantage of Flickr’s full screen mode. It might not be the the same as being there but at least it’s closer to the moment…big!
