Nicely done, Lowell.
Maximum participation with the minimum of risk to all.
Very smooth.
And it should make for some nice insights for the book.
My order's still in.  Wink

Congratulations to everyone for pulling this off, and without significant mishap! And thanks for all of the skier/boarder perspectives, photos, and the movie. So, Lowell, will this become an annual tradition? If so, with the success of this one you should probably plan for more racers next year.

Lowell,
Thanks for pulling off this event and sharing it with us. Your are correct that you must not commercialize or notify when and if you do it again. Don't ask don't tell is the only way this event will work. Keep up the good work.
