Today is International G.N.A.R. Day 2012. 2 Years ago on this very day the 1st and only game of G.N.A.R. was played at Squaw Valley USA.
There wasn’t a whole lot of G.N.A.R. to be found at Squaw today. The dismal season has sucked a lot the the G.N.A.R. sauce from our Squaw brethren. Rock hard conditions today were exactly “inspiring”.
Yet, in the center of that stokeless flock, one man stood alone today. That man was Eric Bryant. G.N.A.R. day was important to him and the fact that it coincides with his 21st birthday didn’t hurt any.
Eric recognized a strange wind anomaly on the Palisades. An apron of snow had formed beneath the Box. It was as if the God of G.N.A.R. himself had pushed that apron there to say unto thee:
“hereth is my challange to you. Ski this and you will hands down win the the International Day of G.N.A.R.”
Eric accepted the challenge, stomped it, straight-lined an icy F-ed up Chicken Bowl, and appropriately claimed it.
Congratulations Eric, you are the winner of the 2nd annual International Day of G.N.A.R. You join an elite class of International Day of G.N.A.R. Champions.
We do want to note that G.N.A.R. day was definitely not as fun without Benny who cooked breakfast in KT line and got first KT chair last year and was super fun to ski with all day.
