This photo is very special to me. Top of Wolverine Cirque, on the 1-year anniversary of Billy Poole's passing. It was the same exact spot he dropped into one year earlier...

The whole zone was unskied and I could feel Billy with me the entire day, from the moment I woke up, hiking to Wolverine. And most certainly at this moment and as I dropped in to his line. I skied it well, it was very exhilarating, as I increased my speed and performed a big swooping right hand turn a few 100 feet down around some rocks and beat my sluff through the exit.. I yelled a very hearty yell.. tears welled up. This was a very special run indeed. Love and miss you Billy boy.
