Paint the slopes black


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v226/silkysoul/race_sb2011_sm.jpg

So, here's my latest photo. You like? I was haulin' butt down a race ski slope at the NBS 2011 Black Ski Summit. Clubs from around the nation gather to have a party in the Rockies (if it's in Colorado) and experience the joy of skiing in one of the best locales in America. This year, it was in Steamboat Springs, CO. The Summit drew more than 1,000 NBS members, which was evident by the flood of "chocolate" skiers & snowboarders drenching the slopes for the first week in March. Celebrity guests who performed at the NBS happy hours included Doug E Fresh, Biz Markee & MC Lyte. So, once you were done skiing during the day, you could get'cha groove on in the evening with your favorite artists.

Niiice! I'm not mentioning any names, but there's another black skier in the CL. Wonder if they were there on the slopes with you? :whistle:


P.S. Checked out your facebook pix. Wo-o-owwww! :tu:

Thanks, Tea Honey! I had *-fun-* that week! It's been over 5 years since I'd been to Colorado, so it was overdue! :yes:

Glad I could share my experience so well with you! :tu:

Thanx for sharing them. Good to see da fambly pix doing the winter sports thing. There are several regular posters on the CL who are/were into winter sports. I'll mention grrlie because she's said so publicly (ice skates). I also was - and I do mean was :lol: - a figure skater. Unfortunately, the basement flooded our first year into our house and almost all my photos from the time I was 2 were destroyed. :cry: I did manage to salvage one picture of me in an Ice Skating show, but..... don't know how to upload pix! :dunno:

Here's some Youtube links to video slides from the recent summits, including a montage from this year:

Funny anecdote: I would've been in the second "Ski Races" video, since I placed third in my bracket of races, but I left before the awards were given. I didn't even know this video existed until someone posted them in the LinkedIn N.B.S. Summit thread. Small world.
