I learned how to snowboard at Crystal Mountian,WA., and I worked-lived up there for a couple seasons. Crystal is mostly ridden by skiers, and I really tried to emmulate what they could do down the groomed slopes. I became infatuated with ski racers, and would call the young lady ones applebutts because they would bend over in the liftline, with there ski poles sticking there butts in the air. Everyone thought I did a drawing of Pecabo Street, but I used a picture of Hilary Lindh. The board in the picture tho is actually signed by Pecabo, who got a silver medal in Super G at the 94 Olympics. She won gold in the downhill at the 98 event.
