.otto.I met bobby brown at a-basin one fine spring day. me being a young Michigan park rat at the time had never seen a pro before and was worried if i approached him he would be annoyed. He ended up being the nicest dood, let me take a picture and he invited me to ride the chair up with him and asked about my life ect. bobby your the best!
THEDIRTYBUBBLEAnd I met Andy Parry but I didn't have a great experience. I was a gaper and Andy was on the rope tow, and I tried to be cool and slide into the rope tow, but I caught in edge right in front of him and landed on my face. Andy chuckled to himself and said "yep that's how you break a rib". At the pizza party afterward, he made it up to me with a Yoke Snapback, but the other kids made fun of me so I just left.

BMBIndeed, I went there once , it was controlled chaos and rope tow burn to boot, but the laps made fun memories
john18061806Imagine growing up thinking that's the norm. Then you go to a park out west and ski like an asshole. That's my life.
AKskiaMet most of the pros who work at Windells and the Inspired and Surface crews. The nicest and most genuine pro that I met though was Nicky Keefer. I met him when I was in the airport getting picked up by the Windells staff and he was so chill, we talked for a solid 2 hours. Throughout the week there I talked to him more and whenever I saw him on the mountain he was so stoked. Then six months later I randomly saw him when I was in the Portland airport and he totally recognized and remembered me, such a cool dude.

J-WileOne a contest when I was 15 and they flew me to Keystone to shred with Jossi the entire day. I was a gaper back then sadly :-(

Also met Henrick, Tanner, Phil, and Nick + wells brothers
*WYO*I met Nicky Keefer. He is an awesome dude all around.
