"Looks like we clocked in at 10 miles and 2700 feet ascent" . . . I'm glad they planned an intermediate day for the new guy!
Scott: "Today I brought the good skis!"
Tony: "I felt like I could go forever."
John: "I chose this route because there is more uphill. I like uphill best."
Greg: "So . . . you mean that if I put the red wax on, and not just in the kick zone but on the whole ski, then it will slow me down enough so that skiing will be more like walking? I bet then I could make it back to the car without falling down! (As long as someone holds this bubblegum for me.)"
