Way to go JD!! Congratulations on a well deserved opportunity.

I too want to offer JD my congratulations. Cannon is a huge part of skiing history in this country, and hopefully will continue its legacy into the future.
Since I grew up skiing there in the 60's and 70's, I have many great memories of that Mountain, (many of which I am still not willing to admit to) that even now I considered Cannon to be my home.
I just hope when I come up there this winter I don't get in half the trouble with JD as I used to get into with Bill Norton......another of the Cannon GM's for whom I will always have the greatest admiration and respect. I can't count how many times he took my pass away for a week at a time, but no matter what we did, he always treated us fairly, even when we didn't really deserve it.

Congrats and good luck to JD. He's the man.
