As Warren might say: "I'll see you same time, same place next year, only I'll be watching from a different mountaintop."

I count the first time I heard his voice from across the room as one of those memorable events that you remember forever. Actually knowing him only made it better.

I'd grown up in Colorado devouring his films and loving the sport of skiing that he promoted to the level that it is today. Many would have never attached two sticks to their feet to go hurtling down a mountain if not for his incredible films with that voice adding a level of humor and wit that few can match. It was always that voice that I heard in my head as I rode the chairlifts or glided through the pow pow.

Tonight we'll raise a glass and toast to a life well lived - hurtling from one near disaster to another.

Rest in Peace Warren. Thank you for stories and memories that will live long after the snow melts.
