Dropping by Daly Chute #4

This Thursday, as the gray skies were charged with snow, ready to fall and as I was skiing Empire Express, I chose to play around the X-Files. As I was ready for a second lap, I stopped on my way by Daly Chute #4 to get a closer look and had the following conversation with the Chute:

Chute #4: Hi, I haven’t seen you around in a while!

JF: Sorry, I was just skiing by, going to the X-Files…

Chute #4: I can’t understand what makes these trees such a big deal…

JF: You’d be surprised how fun they are today with six inches of new snow!

Chute #4: Hey, that’s just a temporary condition; why don’t you come a little bit closer…

JF: I’m not sure, I just wanted to say hello.

Chute #4: Are you telling me that you’ve become a big chicken? Get a bit nearer to the edge, take a look down!

JF: I’m impressed with what I see…

Chute #4: That’s what most people who come up here tell me before they turn around and ski elsewhere; what happened to courage? They say they’re “just dropping by,” but in truth they won’t!

JF: I’m not like that…

Chute #4: Okay, show me!

JF: I won’t jump the cornice though; I’ll catch it from skier’s left.

Chute #4: Good boy…

Now, enjoy the video!

    Larry, great skiers never have to be told; they simply need to be reminded…
