GrandThingsCalled out sick of work a two seasons ago to ride a 15 inch day at Cannon with three other friends who rip.
It was a random weekday and the already uncrowded mountain was legitimately empty, to the point where it was a bit eerie. Skied the front 5 for a few hours before we ran into a random (off-duty) patroller on a lift. He took a few laps with us and then decided to show us around some of his favorite spots. Being on the East Coast, and newer to skiing, it was my first time skiing "real" pow and he helped critique my form (I've never taken any sort of lesson). My friend then made a comment about a "safety meeting" and he sat with us while we sparked up. We sat in the woods for prolly an hour just listening to his stories and chilling. Legit one of the best days of my life and shoutout to Doug!
This is exactly why I made this thread. I feel like so many people in the community have a memory like that, at least I do this was a dope read
