Elvis Cares

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | December 20, 2010      

Some hacker broke into my website and left this. I was about to erase, but a little bird said leave it!

Yes, someone cares that you tele.

Another version just came in, based on a velvet painting at Graceland:

Elvis telemarks and backcountry skis.

    Perhaps you should change the caption to “Elvis Carves”?

    Um, we’re not living in a vacuum here, though we do enjoy original material instead of re-publishing.

    My bad. Remove as necessary.

    Brian, not big, I’m just being a commenter (grin).

    Tim, I care, I really really do.

    Elvis needed to get his weight back over his right foot and lead with his microphone when turning right. Having never learned this, he, like many other aspiring telemarkers, turtled on the steeps, cartwheeled in the powder, blamed the equipment and quickly switched to back AT. Had Elvis learned better technique, he may have stuck with tele and possibly avoided the dreaded fat Elvis phase of his career.

    Rob, LOL, thinking back on my own brief career in tele (grin).

    that is so fake, nobody skis on risers that tall.

    Hey, watcha mean, it might not have been Elvis, but I’ve seen plenty of tele risers that tall over the years. Not so much now, but tons of them a few years back. Always got a chuckle out of them…

    that riser is no bigger than the G3 double stack….

    Elvis is currently in the fat phase. I saw him at Wolfie skiing Coombacks with Dukes.
