A Ski Trip with a Cause

Downhill Derelicts

Downhill Derelicts and Edge’s Own Give Back I learned how to ski as a kid, but my family stopped taking winter trips as my sister and I got older.  I picked it back up during college spring breaks and post-graduation trips.  I loved it and my dad did too as he also resumed the hobby with some of his friends.  Needless to say, the idea that we would go on a ski trip together had been planted.
