Since I wore hiking boots and sweatpants during the 1980s, I didn’t really get to appreciate the style of that era. Last week, however, I embraced it at a showing of Greg Stump’s “Legend of Aahhh’s” at Lone Peak Cinema, in Big Sky. There, while wearing a turquoise mini skirt, hoop earrings and a heinously boxy off the shoulder sweater, I introduced Stump and Scot Schmidt, two men who changed ski history.
It was a marathon week. Earlier that day we put out another Big Sky Weekly. Then the Freeskiing World Tour came to Moonlight Basin, and I spent three days in the Headwaters, hiking, skiing and shooting photos and video of the insane things the competitors were throwing down. It was awesome to be up there messing around and seeing old friends at the mountain.
I also put together a couple of video clips from earlier in the month.
The first is from a windy avalanche control morning with Moonlight patrol. In the second, veteran KGLT DJ Ron Sanchez plays vinyl Jimi Hendrix and talks good radio.
