Dalton Williams and I met as ski instructors at Snowshoe Mountain in the Monongahela National Forest of West Virginia. During training week Dalton, who is from Alabama, broke his leg learning to ski. After a couple of months working in the rental shop, he was able to try ski instructing again.
Boom, that’s when we finally crossed paths as locker neighbors. He immediately caught my eye, and I was the first person in the locker room to officially introduce myself. We hit it off quickly.
Now, we are living our fourth and third year at Snowshoe. We’ve skied in Colorado together and we plan on doing it again. We both aspire to backcountry ski, walk up 14,000-foot mountains together, and ski instruct in Japan. So wish us luck. I feel so grateful to have met my partner in recreation. I love the perspective we bring to the ski hill. – Aspen Handy
