Almost assuredly a repost but search option sucks. Anyway, who's got some stories of meeting pro skiers? I'll start:
Standing in line for gadzoom 2 Saturdays ago. I see someone who looks a lot like cody Townsend but with super long hair. I see the dudes decked out in the newest Salomon and has swatch stickers so as I walk past him cause I'm in the singles line, i say, you look familiar. He responds, "guess". I say "Salomon everything plus swatch, I'd say you're cody townsend" he confirms and says I've got the right idea for 10am on a Saturday with my onesie and pbr in hand. I tell him he's awesome and a huge inspiration with all the stuff he's shot over the years. He thanks me humbly and I keep moving up the line. First pro skier I ever met, seemed like a chill dude.
