Today I skied with an interesting couple I met in the gondola. They live in St Louis but the husband Rob is an Aussie. He and his wife are both Jewish and his wife Elizabeth is a rabbi (I was totally unaware that there are female rabbis but then I don't know that many Jewish people...) Now I've skied with a rabbi and my parish priest; if there are any representatives of other religions who want to ski with me I have no prejudices.
The snow still hasn't come yet, but I had so much fun with these guys I still managed my biggest day so far; 18,545 vertical ft (season total 232,035 ft) in 4:24. Here's the track.
