SASS - If you can't have fun with them.....you won't have fun with anyone!

Just finished up a week with SASS in Argentina. I think the best advice I had prior to leaving was something I read in a post. The #1 thing to do prior to heading south was to have NO expectations. This advice was given by Garrett Russell with a few other tips. Honestly, I don't remember the rest but I fully embraced the "no expectation" suggestion. This was an adventure in every sense of the word.

Over the week I got to see some young kids ripping it up like they had been skiing for decades, a 50'ish man treat every day on the mountain as if he was a 12 year old. He just loves being on the mountain day in day out. I met some folks I'll be friends with for years to come. I saw the staff of SASS make every day count even though the conditions were against them. In listening to a conversation at breakfast with Michelle Parker and David Reichel I realized that the adventure is not just on the mountain, but getting there too.

During this trip the information was flowing. I don't think I could of had more instruction if I asked. The point is, I never asked. If anyone from SASS watched you do anything that could be improved upon, you'd get a subtle little "hey, if you try this.....it will make it easier on you".

If you love sliding down a mountain and want to hang around like minded people while getting better with little effort over just loving the sport, this is the place to come. I heard of SASS 60 days ago and now I'm a life long fan!!! Thanks so much for the great time and I look forward to seeing you guys on another adventure!!!!
