Today was a very special day at the Audi Birds of Prey. After a week of walking up what is affectionately known as the Paul Robbins Death March up the hill from the buses, all of us gathered at the finish line between runs of the GS to bury some ashes. Son DC had brought them, along with Paul’s tam, for a special service. Thanks to John Dakin for getting us all inside the fence and for digging a little hole in the snow right at the finish. If you’re watching on TV, it’s on skier’s left right at the line. All week long Paul’s smiling face was posted on the wall above our workstations. Peter Graves and Dakin did a nice tribute on Friday before the downhill. Paul, you’ll always be with us here at Redtail Camp.
