I had heard the legends, that he actually existed, that he indeed wore a big purple ski suit. I thought it was a myth, a legend equally as mysterious as bigfoot or the loch ness monster... However, during a very IKONic sleeper pow day up at snowbird.... I saw him. He called out my newschoolers sticker that I rock on the back of my helmet and I turned at there he was...... big purple ski suit and all. Truly was a day that I will tell my children and their children's children.
