As the serene mountains of Colorado are invaded by a truly motley crew of ATLiens this weekend, I can’t help but ponder the ramifications of their epic cross-country adventure. Think about what is happening…a bachelor party, a handful of bourbon-soaked Kentuckians, a rat-pack of Atlanta’s Buckhead-elite/Eastsiders/Westsiders and even a few “locals” will converge for a weekend of craft beers, winter sports and a LOT of altitude sickness.
While sitting here in my cube, mired in an expansive Excel model, I came across this truly awe-inspiring trailer for a snowboarding film set to release this fall. Check it out, but for all of you carving it up this weekend, don’t use the awesomeness of this video to get any crazy ideas. If you find yourself grinding on any lift wires or nearing the highest tip of a pine tree, make a mental note of the closest aid station and prepare yourself for an incredibly painful wipeout because your situation will not have come by choice.
