sometimes danger really does ROCK?!
We’ve passed this sign countless times on our way thru the gates at Alpine Meadows at Copper Mountain. I have always thought it was comical and I tend to get a funny kick out of various posted signs (I’ll share more sometime!) so we stopped for a photo opportunity. Little did we know the foreshadowing that would follow.
So shortly after Danger Dan’s pose and technically during my danger ROCKS fist pump pose, Dan did something dangerous. Danger didn’t seem to rock so much anymore because, apparently, there are some sharp dead trees in Alpine Meadows. Forget the rocks, maybe they should call it Alpine Deadows since the trees can take the life right out of your sweet ski coat. Just ask Danger, err….um, Dan. Maybe I should just call him “Ripper”.
Yes, that is the sleeve of Dan’s coat. Yes, you can now see through it. No, that is not a Spyder “special feature”. Needless to say, we spent the evening out gathering research for a new coat. Sometimes danger is dangerous.
We dropped off Dan’s sleeve at Spyder in Boulder and they are going to fix his sleeve. Spyder, you are awesome. Thanks for making our dangerous not so expensive this time!
