Our Sales Manager Ashley Hart recently received this letter from our friend Dana Ham at the Mountain Shop in Portland Oregon. We thought it was a terrific share.
"Margot Aserlind is the mother of my girlfriend Kristy Aserlind. Margot is 86 years young and a skier for over 70 years. She grew up in Dillon, MT. and now lives in Livingston, MT where she is well known to all. She is a pass holder at Bogus Basin.
We outfitted Margot in a new set of boots and skis last Spring, and she chose a pair of Icelantic Oracles as her daily driver. The pictures attached are of Margot skiing with her daughter Kristy, and Kristy's daughter Tess Wood. Kristy is a Cert 3 PSIA ski instructor of over 40 years. Her daughter Tess was the captain for her college ski team (Harvard), and is now coaching ski racing in Jackson Hole, WY. The skiing photo is three generations of Aserlind women ripping it up.
I hope you can do something fun with these. I think Margot would get a kick out of it. Let me know if you do. She will be back in the states next week. It would be fun to show her.
Margot and Kristy are currently on vacation in Antarctica. It's their annual Fall trip, which they take every year. Last year it was trekking in Uganda to see the Mountain Gorilla's. Margot does know how to live.
