Gibbs' Dad's Hat
tag # 000780
Sara's dad is a great skier, he continues to ski every weekend
of the season at Gore Mountain in Upstate NY. Gore is where
I met Sara, she is one of the toughest skiers I ever met, and
when she decided to take up snowboarding she got even tougher.
During here first weeks of learning to snowboard she tried
to keep up with all of here speed addicted (not the drug) ski
buddies.. She would just point her board down and attempt to
keep up with people on race skis.. And she did.. It was crazy,
apart from some of the nastiest spills I have ever seen, Sara
is now one of the fastest snowboarders I know.
The last time I went ridding with her at Snowbird (there are
ten or so skiers
and boarders from Gore Mountain who live and work in Utah now)
I couldn't even keep up and I have been snowboarding for 15
Sara's family has always skied and used to have a virtual museum
of bad ski fashions from the 60's through the 80's and this
hat was one such example.. I love it and have worn it all over
the place. I used to get in trouble at snowbird b/c the hat
didn't fit in with the new styles.. I tried to explaine that
all of the Old Timers wore a hats like this, at one point, so
I was just paying respect to the world famous Junior B.
