You had me at the word 'hike'

 Bill owns Beaver's backside

 "You had me at the work 'hike'"  Yup, you don't have to ask Bill twice 

 Yes, that is Bill with a Diet DP and a 'true to his 60's roots' Peace Sign on his helmet.  As is almost always the case, these were the best two skiers on the mountain.  Neither one even flinches at a steep pitch with wind-blown crud and a tight fit between rock and trees.  Butter. Silk. Smooth as. Always.

 Tres bros in our camo gear.  Bill and Tom both look dapper in green.  Not sure the same can be said of my 'Ocean' blue jacket or my 'volcano' pants.
