Timberline is still open
Meeting up with Eric Pollard and his new wife Erin, we headed up to Timberline where we hooked up with Pat Keene and several minions from the TGR board to test out the newly pressed Bro Models. The Palmer snowfield basked in the sun above low-lying clouds and offered up some great corn and fun times. While the sliver of snow connecting the mid-station with the lower terminal of the lift was fondly referred to as "the ribbon of death," it provided an excellent opportunity to get the Bros up to full speed without worrying about other skier traffic. The biggest hazard was avoiding the jagged rock walls surrounding the ribbon.
So if you're sitting around twiddling your thumbs waiting for the snow, be proactive and head to Timberline. Skiing may seem like a far-off dream, but really it's only a car-drive away.
I took my place on the old chairlift seat directly opposite Galbraith's desk, and as the conversation turned toward Ski Journal banter, my eyes drifted upward until I saw the apparent source of my paranoia. There, hanging on the wall above Jeff's chair, were Gene, Paul, Ace, and Peter.
I rubbed my eyes as Jeff went on and on about the ski industry and the magazine market and Frequency and oh yeah, how he'd always been a skier, while Grant and Wibby offered their own occasional "mmm-hmmms" and "no doubts," but I couldn't keep my eyes or attention off the Knights In Satan's Service. The KISS poster is about 4x6 and it commands obedience. There was Gene, mouth blood-red and eyes staring into mine. Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud... I was lip-synching. I blearily surmised the poster was part of Galbraith's mind-control technique to get visitors to Ground Zero of funny feelings LLC to basically see things his way. Whatever the deal was, it worked. I soon found myself shaking hands (with the devil?) and happily agreeing to devote all my time and energy to learning how to spurt blood from my mou--um, to helping make The Ski Journal a commanding new title in the mag industry.
How can you lose with Gene, Paul, Ace, and Peter behind you? It's not fair.

The Ski Journal
Galbraith continued, "I?ve skied since I was three and snowboarded for 20 years-plus. We?ve always believed in a product like this for skiers, and now we?re doing it.?
