"When I was with Timy, I wasn’t missing out on anything. How could we be? We were probably having the time of our lives running around like we were ten years old. No cares, no stress—just good, lighthearted, ten-year-old fun. It could be the most epic powder day at Squaw Valley, but he would be equally as happy skipping out, and instead sessioning a three-foot jump-to-flat in his backyard, doing backflips all day. Teaching me backflips. We did that. We felt like we were ten." @Myshellparker remembers @TimyDutton (1987-2014); to read the full piece, follow the link in our profile.
"About an hour later, we heard some chatter on our radios. It was @bushywayne, and he was in the plane, about five minutes away. It was game time. He flew by to get a visual on us at the end of a small glacier. They flew in low, 50 feet off the deck, and dropped a pair of skis from the plane, which landed perfectly about 100 feet from us. Dan [Treadway] grabbed them as the plane looped around again. The next drop was a package with three small parachutes attached. It was our order, an eight pack of Old Style beer. They were ice cold and came in for a smooth landing, unscathed. We could hear the plane powering up and climbing to 13,000 feet. With a few clouds in the sky, we lost visual a few times, but as they got closer to the drop elevation, the sky was clear. Out jumped Bushy, and after a quick free-fall his chute opened clean and he flew towards us. It was windy, and he got within a few hundred feet of us. We started up our sleds and got a little closer. His feet touched the snow and high fives were immediately thrown around and beers were cracked in celebration of another BushyWayne adventure." - @brynhughesphoto recounts an adventure in the #Whistler backcountry; read more at freeskier.com. #Freeskier #Skiing
