Ray Hugie's Life Shortened by Five Years!

It's now official.  Thanks to Shelly for the idea of throwing some plexiglass over the plaque. 

A man, a drill, and a bench: self-portrait.  Thank goodness I got my Carhartt vest for Christmas because it's obvious that nothing can be worked on at the Beav without Carhartt attire.

And if I may add one more photo for mom:

More Family Skiing

 Jack checking out the "Corduroy Posse" bench

Lifelong Beaver Mountain Skiers:
John Emmett - Last Run 2010
Ray Hugie - Last Run 1999 (corrected date)
Robert Hutchison
Elliot Rich
Wayne Rich
Loyal Seeholzer - Last Run 2001

 "That's my Great-Grandpa"

 Hollie Seeholzer and her son checking out the bench honoring dad/grandfather Loyal

 Michael and Bob share a ride with Elliot Rich, 91, Lieutenant Commander, US Navy, Retired, PhD. Senior member of the Posse, still skiing strong.  This man is brilliant.  Many, if not most, of the mid-ship-men in WWII that used Radar (one of the key technologies that won the war) could trace their training back to Elliot who taught Radar techniques at Harvard, MIT and Princeton during the war.

 Ben, McKinley, the original Norda and Jake check out the 'Posse Bench'

 Jack turned the corner and left his 'edgy-wedgie' behind today after private lessons from two of Utah's finest instructors - his dad (Alumni of The Canyons) and Uncle Michael (Deer Valley)

 Elliot checking out the plaque on the bench

'Brothers in Arms' Wayne and Elliot Rich on their bench.

Family Fun Ski Day

All of those that attended the Family Fun Ski Day at Beaver Mountain today... and as Papa John used to always say, "A family that skis together, stays together...and may it ever be so!"

Amen.  And if you'll excuse YPR for jumping in, here are a few more photos:

And then there was the fire . . . .

Early Start to the Ski Season

 Top of the Dream Lift Opening Day 12/10/10

John Dropping on on the backside

 Plenty of Coverage for December

 This is the day after the storm on 12/20 AND after lunch.  Still untracked

 By the time Brian drops into the Secret Stash, he has to contend with two set of tracks

 Brian enjoyed his day in the powder skiing on Clark's old Armada's

Maybe next time I'll bring a real camera.  The iPhone works OK in a pinch.
