Over Thanksgiving break, I was chilling in DT Breck (from Iowa). A few friends and I were chilling at a bar table getting some munch when Keegan Kilbride (rocking two fat tall ts and baggy ass snow pants so it was confirmed) pulls up and sits at the table directly next to us. Immediately I started freaking out (granted I was baked as shit) and figuring out my entry line. My friends had no idea why I was obsessing so much because they rarely get on NS so I was a bit discouraged. Unfortunately he dipped out much sooner than I anticipated and I was left in his wake of style. I realize these type of guys probably don't get too much notice so fans are humbling, but in the moment I couldn't convince myself. A similar situation happened with JAH SPRIGGS the next day at key. He stared into my soul after a rail line briefly, dreads glistening in the son. I got half a word out before french frying down the run. I think a large part of it comes from me not being around these level of skiers in Iowa and the intimidation that comes with it. I did however meet Jossi and Wacko when I was working at key one time and that was tight /claim.
Anyone else have similar stories? Stories where you met the skier?
