Honored to be Ratified as a Diamond Pro!

The ski schools of Aspen/Snowmass have a wonderful program called the Diamond. I am very honored and humbled to have been asked to join this group this season. It is a fascinating group of people who are very committed to a high standard in teaching and skiing or riding skills, and the process to become a Diamond Pro involves a serious look into one's self and motivations.

Going through the process helped me uncover, through peer review, some hard truths. I had the choice to look at them and take the coaching, or walk away. Even had I not been selected this year, I'm so grateful for the process that I went through in applying. It was a two season process, and the further I went into it, the more I was grateful for the coaching from the pros who were in the program.

Thank you very much to the Diamond Team for your hard work and for inviting me to join the group.

Ah, yes. The illusive Weems. One rarely sees them in the wild these days. It's lovely to come across a Weems in it's natural habitat.

(Congratulations on your entry into Diamond Pro. You've always been a diamond pro -- little "d", little "p" -- to us.)
