It was unreal, the saddest part about was I didn't recognize him at first. I work in a ski shop as a shop tech/ shop bitch been their for about a month or so and him and his other buddy stopped in to get some skis mounted up and he was great friends with the owner of the shop (found out later they were for the upcoming level 1 film).
I let him go into our mount room and go to town helped him a little bit got to touch his skis, I come back in a realize that he has the next year models skis and once I got his name it took me a minute and then I started piecing things together.
Long story short, he left by the time I figured out who he was, and I was just star struck. I doubt many people have the same experience I have had or felt so stupid to realize they met a pro after it had happened. But even still it was quite a feat for me to meet a pro for the first time at 19 years old. Anyways, i just wanted to express my level of stoke I had when they came in. That is all. It was definitely the highlight of my week.
