Anthony’s epic journey Vail local embarked on Mongolian adventure for upcoming Warren Miller film ‘Dynasty’ By Geoff Mintz Special to the Mountaineer Vail local Chris Anthony has skied all over the world. And we’re not just talking Switzlerland and France; Anthony’s skiing resume includes places like Iran, Kazakhstan and Ecuador, to name a few. The Vail local has cut lines on mountains that no one had thought to ski before, but his recent trip to Mongolia, he says, was “the most epic journey yet.” If you’ve seen a Warren Miller film in the last two decades, Chris Anthony skied in it. And there was no better way to celebrate his 20-year anniversary than an expedition to discover the origin of the sport that has defined his life, he said. The inspiration for the trip to North West China was to investigate a rumor that archeologists had discovered a petroglyph (rock carving) that dates back 3000 years and depicts indigenous people on skis. If confirmed, the revelation would raise questions about long-standing belief that skiing originated in Norway less than 1,000 years ago. Anthony, 22-year-old Canadian jibber Austin Ross and filmmaker Chris Patterson set off to Beijing, not quite sure exactly how they would reach their ultimate destination of a rumored ski community in the Atlai Mountains. Before embarking on the trek, the team took an opportunity to experience the bustling city of Beijing. Anthony remarked that it’s amazing how the old world meets the new in Beijing. “You see a guy in a hundred thousand dollar BMW drive past a guy in a horse and buggy,” he said. The crew had a chance to visit China’s first commercial ski mountain. Anthony described the hilarious scene at the ski mountain by explaining that it was built by a wealthy Chinese entrepreneur, who had never skied before, in a place where it doesn’t snow. “It’s a stunning interpretation of how to operate a ski mountain,” Anthony said. “There’s actually a lot we could learn from them and vise versa.” The impending skiers arrive with no equipment and little knowledge of the sport. They are sent through an assembly line, through which they are outfitted in identical clothing and gear, then led straight to the chairlift. Anthony said that he introduced a bold new concept called “turning” to the ski resort. They were like missiles going down the hill, [See XXXXX, page XX]

Jack’s Place fundraiser brings out hundreds Organizers want to make successful ‘Hike, Wine & Dine’ event an annual gathering By Beth Potter Mountaineer Staff Writer About a year ago, Breckenridge firefighter T.J. Johnson had a seizure while he was playing softball. With a trip to the doctor, the 40-year-old found out the terrible truth — he had brain cancer. Surgery that opened up his skull left him temporary paralyzed on the left side of his body for more than a month as he battled with the disease. But in an ironic piece of good news, when Johnson started doing chemotherapy at the Shaw Center’s “Jack’s Place” as a follow-up to the surgery, the seizures stopped. Doctors had predicted that the chemotherapy might irritate the brain and cause more seizures, Johnson said. Instead, he hopes the fact that the seizures have stopped means that he has beaten the cancer. Johnson won’t find out the answer to that question for six more weeks or so, when doctors have scheduled an MRI test for him. But Johnson does know that he’s feeling pretty good at the moment. And at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday, he has a celebration planned. That’s the end time of his last scheduled chemotherapy treatment at the Shaw Cancer Center in Edwards. “Considering the bad thing that happened to me, medically, everything else has been positive,” said Johnson. A long, surgical scar Johnson and four of his close friends were five of the 100 or so participants to do the first ever Hike, Wine & Dine for Jack’s Place, a non-profit, 12-bedroom facility for cancer patients to stay after treatment in Edwards. The facility has an operating budget of about $200,000 per year. He leans over to show off the long scar on his shaved head from the surgery, then looks around at the clear, blue sky, the yellow aspens, and shakes his head slightly. “I was going to make a donation anyway, so this couldn’t have worked out better for me,” Johnson said. “Some of my best friends came out to support me.” Just knowing that Jack’s Place is available makes Shaw Cancer patients feel better, Johnson said. While the facility asks for a suggested donation of $25 per night, patients can pay whatever they please, or nothing at all. Seven patients are at the facility this week. “You know you’re going to get sick and get tired, so just knowing there’s a place you can stay here …,” Johnson said about Jack’s Place. “I can’t say enough about how relieved I am that it’s there.” Hiking and eating, eating and hiking Participants hiked and ate their way across the lower reaches of Beaver Creek on Saturday to raise money. Jack’s Place is named after Jack Eck, Vail’s first doctor, who participated in the event. “He always gets the job done,” said Kathleen Eck, Jack’s husband. Eck said he had a lot of help from other organizers, though. “All of these ladies get it done,” Eck said, nodding toward organizers talking to each other on the lawn. “I just stay out of the way.” Organizers decided to do something outdoors after supporter Lynn Gottlieb read a blog about a similar, but more informal, event in France in which hikers drank wine as well. Gottlieb talked to Tony O’Rourke, who runs the resort, to get approval for the event, and pretty soon six Beaver Creek restaurants were on board as well. “We didn’t think Americans would go for wine at every stop, so we put it at the end,” Gottlieb said. “We’re just delighted at the turnout.” Jackie Anthony raved about the fundraiser’s hiking theme. Her friend Abby Dixon agreed. “I never go to cocktail parties anymore, and my daughter is a volunteer at Jack’s Place, so this is great,” Dixon said. Sponsors included Beaver Creek Resort Co., Millenium Bank, Gottlieb and her husband John, Suzy and Jim Donohue, Lisa and Dave Pease and Doris and John Kirchner, Spago, The Osprey, Grouse Mountain Grill, The Dusty Boot, Beaver Creek Chophouse and Rimini.

VVMC to discontinue home health care service

We Offer Spa Chemical Services at 1978 Pricing Your winter spa cover headquarters

Local health care providers to fill need for communities Mountaineer Staff Report Home Health Care, a service offering in-home physical therapy, occupational therapy and short and longterm health care for a small number of families in the Vail Valley community, will discontinue operation November 30th, Doris Kirchner, VVMC’s Chief Executive Officer announced Friday. “All of us at Vail Valley Medical Center (VVMC) are deeply committed and concerned about all health care options in our community,” explained Kirchner. “On the surface, this sounds like a service reduction. In reality, we have worked out a considered and measured plan to insure that each of our patients, as well as virtually every staff member serving our patients, have viable options for continued care and, in the case of employees, continued employment. “Essentially we evaluated our resources and our communities’ health care needs and realized we were not generating enough Home Health Care volume to sustain the program in the long term,” Kirchner said. “While this is a business decision, all of our decisions

are made first with patient care and safety in mind. “We are working with two local providers in the area who will take over VVMC’s home health care. Alpine, based in Glenwood Springs, and Bristlecone, based in Summit County, will encompass virtually all of our patients who need care upon the transition. Both organizations stand ready for all new patients in the area that VVMC formerly served. The majority of VVMC staff have found work, either through these agencies, internally at VVMC or elsewhere. Our goal is to make the transition for patients and staff as considerate and caring as possible. Howard Head Sports Medicine will also be utilized for physical therapy patients,” Kirchner added. VVMC’s Hospice program, long associated with the Home Health Care service, will continue operation under the direction of Joe Deuschle, vice president of the Shaw Regional Cancer Center. “A coordinated hospice program is going to continue for our patients and their families. We are committed to creating a program that will meet and exceed the expectations of our community,” Deuschle said.

Need for Seed part 2

Although we’ve had our first round of cold weather and some snow, we normally hit some warmer temperatures into October. Yesterday was quite nice. For wildseeding that includes plants that you don’t want to germinate until spring, hold off until it before the ground gets covered with snow for the season. As much of the valley doesn’t stay snowcovered, wait until it’s cold enough to prevent premature germination. Michael We’ve talked about color before, Gallagher and without saying too much again, pay attention to what colors you are combining. Simple, compatible color themes are easy, and avoid the “confetti” effect of many flower mixes. It is easy to pick just a handful of individual varieties and have a good-looking wildflower planting. Penstemons are a component of our native landscape, and are a good foundation plant for the main part of the growing season. Our native Penstemon strictus, along with P. barbatus (species, not named hybrid) and P. eatonii make a good component for a native seeding. Other blue and purple penstemons are also readily available, and do even more justice to a wildseeding. Ratibidas (R. columnifera) are a good, although less local choice, as it is easy to grow, long flowering, and really cute. Mexican Hat is the reddish type, and the other main color available is yellow. Again, be aware of color. Yellow is a strong color, and works with some schemes and not with others. Red Mexican hat is a choice tone, and it works well with other wildflower colors. It looks unusually good with Burgundy Gaillardia. While most gaillardias have a lot of yellow in them, changing the theme, Burgundy again has the effect of its main color. Any gaillardias are a good wildflower choice as they tolerate heat, drought, and poor soil. While columbines have somewhat of a shade and moisture reputation, this is not the case for some types. Some columbines are native to drier areas, some sunnier, and others favor shade. If you have some shade to seed, our local Western Red Columbine is a worthy choice. Of course, many columbines tolerate part shade, so it is an ideal genus to play with. Columbine mixes offer opportunity because the different individuals will have their inherited preference going for them. I have seen certain “mixed columbines” tolerate some hotter, drier conditions, albeit not at lower elevations, and they flower for a long season. Campanula rotundifolia (Scottish Harebells) is

another native for higher elevations, as well as part shade in warmer situations. Give it some space to spread over the seasons. If you choose among the many yellow wildflowers available, add Sulfur Umbrella as a feature plant. This spectacular native buckwheat (Eriogonum umbellatum) is choice in a rockier setting, or where it can be appreciated up close. Mountain Lupine, or Lupinus alpestris, is not that common in wildflower seedings, and is not that hard to grow. It’s subtly glowing blue cast works well with yellow flowers, and is yet another deer-resistant local. It deserves use. If shadier conditions are prevalent, you can use Mertensia (Chiming Bells) and Forget-Me-Nots. Many commercial seed companies sell seed that is already stratified (chilled or frozen if part of the plant’s natural seed cycle), but some of the really good wildflower seed providers don’t stratify their seed. Just be aware, and refrigeration is worth the effort for some of the rarer seed types. In addition to the large seed companies, like Ball and Park, there are others that specialize more in native seed. Here are just a few resources, and some window-shopping courtesy of High Country Gardens. Their catalog is an excellent reference and idea book. They have some good mixes, and also nursery stock for planting amongst your seeding:;; www. Also, if you have seed questions, I have trialed a number of wildflower seeds up here, and not all of them native. E-mail any questions to: mtngardnr@ I answer any and all of them.

Eagle County runners made an impressive showing in Summit High School’s 9100 Foot Cross-Country Invitational meet on Saturday. In addition to Battle Mountain High School Boys’ second-place finish overall, the team had three top ten finishers. Leading Battle Mountain runner David Shearon took third with a time of 18:27. “The race was awesome,” said Shearon. “It was a clean start. I liked it up in the woods with the coolness, and then it got kind of hot.” Shearon said the race was pretty competitive. “There were some tough spots with the hills and stuff, but it was an overall great race,” he said. As to the 9,100 ft. altitude Shearon added, “It’s higher, but I didn’t feel it very much. It was pretty cool.” Mitch Walker added to the team score with a fifthplace finish, Remsen Allard came in ninth, Eric Gallagher ran 12th, and David Suarez finished 19th. Coach Ryan Matthews was pretty happy about the outcome. “We’re really excited about today,” he said. “They’re [Palmer] a 5A school, but we were right there. We had a guy with every guy of theirs.” Coach Ken Long said there was a lot of personal records at the race. “It was awesome,” he said. “Our goal today was to run with Palmer and see what they could do, and they did. I think we have four guys that are probably going to be in the top ten all-time for this course.” Amelia Ortiz again led the Battle Mountain girls with a fifth place finish time of 22:31. “It was a pretty tough field, and there were good Palmer girls. They’re a really good 5A school,” said Ortiz. “The altitude and the colds going around have been kind of hard on breathing, otherwise it was a good course for our team because we train at high altitude.” Ortiz was the lone top-10 girls finisher for the girls team, which doesn’t number many female runners. The Eagle County Middle School Runners girls also shined in their category, with Sydney Gaylord taking second, Amanda Leonard taking fourth, and Brookie Wallace taking eighth in the top ten. The team took second place. s we spend Goodan weather and spectacular early fall colors at the

Mitch Walker, front, dug altitude hard in Summit County Saturday to nail a fifth-place finish at the 9100 Foot Cross-Country Invitational in Frisco.

Frisco Nordic Center (Frisco Peninsula), and snowcovered peaks in the distance made the event not only ideal for the runners, but for the loyal fans of cross country. It only added to number of families and dogs that love to watch “a suffer sport”, as one parent put it. Another temporary loss of oxygen after the race had nothing to do with the altitude when there was a computer score snafu. A tired Battle Mountain team left before the award announcement, with a manual count of second overall, but mistakenly got announced as first as the Palmer team looked a little stunned at the announcement. The only Battle Mountain parent, who was the default plaque recipient, happened to know that didn’t sound right and headed for the awards presenter, along with the Palmer Coach. A check of the scores showed that the software sorted the teams wrong from an entry typo, and Palmer High’s score totaled wrong. But by that time, the Huskies were already on the bus back home, feeling good after their impressive, earlyseason showing.

Unfettered nuclear access

The U.S. and its five partners trying to stop Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program plan to tell Tehran in a key meeting on Thursday that it must provide “unfettered access” to its previously secret Qom enrichment facility within weeks, a senior administration official said. The U.S., Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia also will present in the Oct. 1 meeting in Geneva a so-called transparency package covering all of Iran’s nuclear activities across the country, the official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss plans that are not yet ready to be announced. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the plant— which Iranian officials say was reported to nuclear authorities as required — would not be operational for 18 months. But he sidestepped a question about whether Iran had sufficient uranium to manufacture a nuclear weapon.

Communication breakdown

A brief lapse in translation during Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday was due to a meltdown by his personal translator, the New York Post reports. “I just can’t take it any more,” Ghadafi’s interpreter shouted into the live microphone – in Arabic during the Libyan dictator’s one and a half hour rant. U.N.’s Arabic section chief, Rasha Ajalyaqeen, took over and translated the final 20 minutes of the speech. Ghadafi brought his own interpreters from Tripoli for the speech rather than use one of the 25 Arabic translators supplied by the United Nations, staff interpreters told the Post.

America’s deadliest bachelor?

A self-proclaimed preacher who was on the TV beauty pageant “The Sexiest Bachelor in America” will be arraigned next week for allegedly torturing and murdering his girlfriend, an ex-adult movie actress.

Prosecutors said Brian Lee Randone, 45, beat and choked Felicia Lee during a domestic dispute at their apartment in the foothill community of Monrovia, northeast of Los Angeles. He then dialed 911 to report she was unconscious, investigators said. In 2000, Randone appeared on the Fox special “The Sexiest Bachelor in America.” He vied with contestants from other states but did not win. Lee, who was born in Singapore, had parts in the movies “Rush Hour 2” and “The Fast and the Furious” and had done some modeling for the Playboy television channel, according to her Web site, which she shut down last year.

Glory Days of senior Springstein celebrated

Scholars from around the world are dissecting the Springsteen legend this weekend in New Jersey. “Glory Days: A Bruce Springsteen Symposium” continues through Sunday at Monmouth University. The no-holds-barred intellectual romp, coinciding with Springsteen’s 60th birthday, was organized by Virginia Tech and Penn State Altoona. Educators spent Friday night singing, hollering and chanting a curse phrase at the impish urging of rock pioneer Gary U.S. Bonds, whose performance brought the house down. Springsteen resurrected Bonds’ career in the ‘80s by writing his comeback hit, “This Little Girl.” The symposium, also held in 2005, is the brainchild of 52-show veteran Dr. Mark Bernhard, director of continuing and professional education at Virginia Tech.

The government of President Hugo Chavez is preparing to impose new regulations on cable television. Among other rules, cable providers could be forced to carry Chavez’s frequent speeches.

Simpsons gets new voice

Seth Rogen has fulfilled a dream, and he’s not talking about starring in the box-office hit “Knocked Up” or playing a superhero in the upcoming “The Green Hornet.” Rogen co-wrote an episode of “The Simpsons” and lends his voice to a character in the episode that airs 8 p.m. EDT Sunday, kicking off the Fox show’s 21st season. He’s only the second visiting celebrity to both write and act, following in the 2006 footsteps of Ricky Gervais. “As a writer, it always just seemed like the Holy Grail,” Rogen said of the animated series. “I can die a happy man now.”

That’s not so sweet

A decision by a federal judge to overturn federal approval of a variety of genetically engineered sugar beets could have a big impact on the Red River Valley of eastern North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota. The “Roundup Ready” sugar beets engineered by Monsanto Co. to resist a weed killer produced by the agricultural giant were approved for use by Red River Valley beet co-ops in 2008, and nearly all of the region’s beets now have the trait. Sugar beet crops grown in the U.S. account for 58.8 percent of the nation’s sugar output, according to the USDA. U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White ruled that the federal Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service violated environmental law by failing to take a “hard look” at whether the Roundup Ready beets would eventually share their genes with other crops.

A two-shot lead going into the final round of the season ender, a final pairing with Tiger Woods, his entire family in town, and a chance to capture the Tour Championship, and the possibility of a $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup ... Sunday is an important day for Kenny Perry. Perry birdied the opening four holes — all on putts inside 8 feet—to quickly catch up to the second round leader Tiger Woods, then kept bogeys off his card the rest of the way for a 6-under 64. “Four birdies in a row puts you in a good mood is all I can say,” said Perry, who was at 8-under 202. “That set the tone for the day.” Woods had a 12-foot birdie putt on the first hole that slid by the cup, and that set the tone for his day. He missed a half-dozen chances from 15 feet or under, yet his only significant birdies came on putts of 20 and 55 feet. The other was a two-putt on a par 5. He wound up with a 69, his eighth consecutive round in the 60s during the FedEx Cup playoffs, yet this one cost him the lead. Perry has 14 career victories, yet only two of them has come with Woods in the field. Even with a two-shot lead, he is approaching Sunday as though he has nothing to lose. He even playfully challenged the world’s No. 1 player. “Here I am at 49, I’m still trying to beat him,” Perry said. “I have fun with it. He’d better bring his ‘A’ game is all I’ve got to say.” For Perry to win the FedEx Cup, he would need a victory Sunday and for Woods to finish in a three-way tie for third or worse. That remains a possibility, given the players stacked up behind them. Phil Mickelson continued to ooze confidence with his putter and shot a 4-under 66, suddenly believing he can make any putt whether it’s from 4 feet or 40 feet. He was at 4-under 206 along with Sean O’Hair (70), who was tied with Woods until pulling a tee shot into the water on the 17th to make double bogey. Padraig Harrington, playing with Woods for the ninth time this year, stopping making birdies to offset his mistakes and shot a 71, leaving him at 207 with Steve Marino (67). Steve Stricker, the No. 2 seed in the FedEx Cup standings behind Woods, got back into the picture, no matter how blurry, with a 66 and was six shots out of the lead. All Woods is trying to do is lift the trophy, although he would like both trophies—the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup—that have been stationed on the first tee all week. There’s a chance Perry can hoist one (Tour Championship) and Woods the other. “I’d much rather just win the tournament, and the FedEx Cup will take care of itself,” Woods said. “As of right now, I’m two back and have an opportunity to win the tournament. And that’s what I’m going to focus on tomorrow.”

Tatiana Guderzo wins women’s road cycling championships 25-year-old Tatiana Guderzo of Italy escaped the leading group early in the last of nine laps and crossed the finish line 19 seconds ahead of Marianne Vos of the Netherlands to capture the women’s road cycling championships. American Kristin Armstrong, the 36-yearold Olympic time trial champion who won the time trial Wednesday, finished fourth in her final race before retirement. Guderzo timed 3 hours, 33 minutes, 25 seconds on the 77.2-mile course. She won bronze in the road race at last year’s Beijing Olympics. The race proved a tactical triumph for the six-strong Italian team, which rode aggressively throughout on a cool, overcast day. Cantele, silver medalist in the time trial, attacked with three laps left but was hauled in by a lead group of 34 riders. The pack was down to 17 for the final lap when Guderzo made her move on the steep climb to Castel San Pietro. Guderzo was joined by Armstrong, Cantele and Vos but surged again and was never in danger of being caught, adding gold to the worlds silver she won in 2004 at Verona, Italy. The 22-year-old Vos won silver for the third straight year after being world champion on her debut in 2006. Cantele crossed the line a bike length ahead of Armstrong.

Tim Tebow ill, gets hospitalized after hit Florida Gator quarterback could have swine flu By Dean Blazier On Friday ESPN reported “Tim Tebow’s illness is not being called the flu and Florida officials were optimistic he would take the field Saturday night.” Take the field he did, but he only made it to the third quarter after a hit left him laying motionless on the ground. The Florida Gators’ quarterback was taken to the hospital by ambulance after taking a shot to the head while being sacked in the third quarter of the No. 1 Gators’ game against Kentucky on Saturday night. Tebow was sacked by Wildcats defensive end Taylor Wyndham, who hit him squarely in the chest. As Tebow fell to the ground, the back of his head hit Gators tackle Marcus Gilbert’s knee. He was then helped to the Florida sideline by trainers and coaches, where his parents came down from the stands to join him. At one point, the entire Florida team was on the field to check on their star quarterback. As he was being taken away on a motorized cart, Tebow

appeared to vomit in a bag. Florida officials are not calling Tebow’s flu-like symptoms swine flu, but are referring to it as a respiratory illness. Ironically, the World Health Orgainization defines swine flu as “a respitory illness that causes symptoms similar to those of the regular human seasonal flu.” Tebow’s “respiratory illness” was contracted at a school which has seen a massive Swine Flu outbreak in the past month. The Gainesville Sun noted that 97 percent of cases involving flu-like symptoms at UF have been confirmed H1N1. Florida beat Kentucky 41-7. The Gators have an open date next week before facing No. 7 LSU on Oct. 10 in Baton Rouge. RIGHT: Teammates look over Florida quarterback Tim Tebow after he was sacked during the second half of their NCAA college football game against Kentucky Saturday night. Tebow almost didn’t start after reports that he is suffering from a respiratory illness that could be H1N1. AP Photo.

Josiah Middaugh finishes 1st for US, 3rd overall at Xterra Mountaineer Staff Report An Eagle-Vail resident was the first American to cross the finish line at the XTERRA USA Championship triathlon in Ogden, Utah Saturday. Josiah Middaugh, 31, of Eagle-Vail has raced in all nine XTERRA USA Championships, winning the point series for the U.S. four times. Utah’s scenic Wasatch Range set the triathlon’s course during what event organizers called a crisp, colorful fall day. The race combined a one-mile swim in Pineview Reservoir followed by a 20-mile mountain bike that climbed 3,000 feet up the mountain and then a 6-mile trail run. Nicolas “Nico” Lebrun from France and Melanie McQuaid from Canada won the XTERRA USA Championship titles. Middaugh, who finished the triathlon with a time of 2:26:08, took home a purse of $1,500. He will also take home an additional bonus, which was unclear at press time, based on his point score of 82. From the finish line, racers headed to the Mountain 2 Metro Festival - a massive block party on 25th in downtown Ogden with live music and tons of great

CHRIS ANTHONY AND WARREN MILLER’S MONGOLIAN ADVENTURE and there were these guys along the side of the trail that were there to clear away all the carnage, he said. The team took a four-hour flight over the Gobi Desert to the city of Urumchi, followed by a van ride to a rural village in the Atlai Mountains, where they were to meet the Kasak horsemen that would be guided them on their snowy mission. They were greeted by an old man with leathery hands and face, the father of the horsemen, who came running out of his home and embraced the crew with warmth in the frigid temperatures. He and his wife welcomed the crew into their home and were gracious hosts, Anthony said. They put out a spread of meats, berries and breads – much needed nourishment leading up to the frigid expedition to follow. The crew was introduced to the newest members of the team: three Kasak horsemen (a.k.a. Smiley, Norbit and David Bowie), their official guide Akbar (who helped facilitate the whole trek, but didn’t really know where he was going, Anthony said) and seven short, sturdy horses, the toughest animals Anthony has ever seen. The Warren Miller crew and their newly acquired entourage set out into the Mongolian mountains through a meter of snow and in temperatures forty degrees bellow zero. As they were ascending the first big mountain pass, one of the horses got stuck up to its chest in snow. Anthony worked up a sweat and exhausted himself, but ultimately he was able to dislodge the animal. It was then that Anthony realized that this expedition was not like all the others. “It was the most serious situation I’ve ever been in,” he said. “I started thinking, what if somebody gets frostbite, or breaks a leg, or gets a stomach virus? Who’s going to come get us? We have a satellite phone, but what am I going to do, call the Warren Miller office in Boulder? What are they going to do, call the U.S. Embassy in Beijing?” At that moment, Anthony understood that the primary mission was to survive; everything else was secondary. He wouldn’t be digging any more horses out of the snow. Along the way, the crew would rely on the graciousness of the hospitable Atlai mountain people for shelter and warmth. Without hesitation they would welcome the strange westerners like Anthony — with his florescent yellow jacket — into their small adobe huts, offer up hot goat tea and a place to sleep. Beating the elements, overcoming language barriers and navigational uncertainty, the Warren Miller crew traveled half way around the world and journeyed out into the far reaches of the Atlai Mountains. They did all this because of a hunch – a hunch that somewhere out there is a mountain community of skiers that “legitimizes the sport of skiing,” said Anthony. And they were right. Now, Warren Miller has asked that we not divulge too much of the story. You have to go see the movie for that. But, we can tell you that the footage is not only visually incredible, it will tug at the heart of anyone who has ever clicked into a pair of skis. The footage will make you forget for a moment about that new pair of skis on your wish list or whether you look cool standing in the lift line. It will remind you why you got into the sport in the first place. Anthony was able to bring home a pair of skis used by the Mongol skiers. Interestingly enough, while their technology hasn’t changed in 3000 years, the reverse sidecut and rocker shape are features that westerners just began implementing into modern powder boards not more than a few years ago. A leather strap binds the skier’s feet, and there is horse skin base that acts just like modern AT and telemark skins. As the crew was preparing to say goodbye to their horsemen and Akbar, Anthony presented one of the men with a pair gloves as a parting gift (amazingly he
