Been kinda busy getting in our last Utah skiing — and attending (along with the humbling honor of officiating) the BIG wedding of Andrew McLean and Polly Samuels. What a cool deal. They were married yesterday in the beautiful Our Lady Of The Snows chapel at Alta, Utah. Ceremony included an exit through a ski pole arch, and a ski down from Alta to the Cliff Lodge of Snowbird, for a wild celebration that included everything from a hora dance with chair carrying, to the Wasatch telemark dance (how low can you go). CONGRATULATIONS Polly and Andrew, and congrats to their families!
