“Ski Day” 2010
“Ski Day” 2008
This year’s Annual Resident Ski Day at Waterville Valley was
an undeniable blast. Some of us started the morning with a lesson
while others skiied with a mountain guide. Perhaps more of the residents
should have taken the lesson and asked specifically for racing tips
as we unfortunately lost again this year to the attendings in the
afternoon's NASTAR race. However, there is hope on the horizon as
we have a couple of ringers in the junior and intern classes (who
will remain unnamed so as to avoid being put on call for future
ski days). Alas, the attendings aren't getting any younger, and
their kids are starting to insist on skiing for the residents. All
we have to do now is figure out how to bribe a certain former US
Women's Ski Team member to come over to our side.
Dr. Brick graciously hosted everyone on Saturday night at his condo
for an X-ray conference, a delicious dinner, and plenty of drinks.
Sunday brought a little pow-pow for those of us who know how to
stay up late and get up early.
Thank you so much on behalf of the residents and fellows to the
attendings who donated their time and resources to making the weekend
another success. We were provided with 3 awesome condos, great meals,
lift passes, lessons and guides. Among the contributers were Drs.
Brick, Ready and Vrahas as well as Drs. Appleton and Abraham. Also,
a big thanks to Dr. Rubash for his support.
