Nelson and Heffernan are on the Hill Crew, Timberline Ski Area’s on-slope department that’s responsible for keeping track of the comings and goings of all the race and freestyle camps that fill the slopes of the summer ski area every day. Part ski patrol, part concierge, part commodities dealers, the Hill Crew does its best to keep everyone happy. They allocate lane assignments to each team, assist ski patrol with signs and rope lines, and provide their clientele with supplies like race gates, safety equipment, and 40-pound bags of coarse Morton salt.

We’ll hopefully be in the mountains in less than 24 hours, camping in a remote backcountry area that’s supposedly holding good snow: untouched August snow easily justifying any hassle that comes along with finding powder.

Light up the grill, crack the cold can, and fly your flag high, because in my world, this weekend’s real meaning—besides all that stuff about work and working hard—is that winter’s near.

Have you watched these Real Ski Edits? Seven skiers (Sean Pettit presumably was number 8, but dropped out due to an injury). Seven edits. One winner.
It’s time to break them down, one by one, for Powder.com in a back-and-forth email chain reminiscent of Simmons v. Gladwell over on Grantland. Hope you’re wearing your Columbian soccer jersey, amigo. It’s about to get loco, son.
