What some local snow enthusiasts listen to on the slopes
By Rachael Daigle
Think back to last season on the mountain. You're cruising down the cat track, gawking at the miles of snow-covered hills in the distance and rocking out to a little Mars Volta. You're just getting into that first sweetly mellow funky Latin piano bit on "L'Via L'Viaquez" when you're sideswiped by some rider coming up from behind you. Suddenly the two of you are rolling across the snow together in an awkward embrace, and just as you're about to drop off into the hillside out-of-bounds area, you disentangle and hit the ground with a thud. Following a series of grunts and mumbled apologies, you realize the other guy thinks it's your fault. "I said 'on your left' like three times," he says. "Didn't you hear me?"
