During the noisy, busy Holiday season, the mountain community lost a giant--a champion, a pioneer, an ambassador: Stein Eriksen. In 1954, when young filmmaker Warren Miller filmed Olympic champion Stein doing a front flip on skis, the world was in awe and it revolutionized the sport. This is my post-MountainZone tribute to Stein and our partners in the 90's - Warren Miller Entertainment, extreme skier Scot Schmidt and The North Face. And of course special thanks to Deer Valley Resort that was always great to work with!

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! I will answer them all as soon as my IEBA Nashville Conference is over tonight. IEBA is entertainment and talent buying... so agents, promoters, festivals, resources, etc. Great seeing familiar faces from ‪#‎CAA‬, #Aloompa#Pollstar, etc. And seeing live performances from Jennifer Nettles, Starship, The Jacksons, Terri Clark, WAR, Family Stone ... and so on... Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo get inducted tonight... I enjoyed Pat's book, Between A Heart & A Rock Place!! It's never easy. Special thanks to Howard Beder and First Class Entertainment, Inc.., International Entertainment Buyers Association (IEBA), ‪#‎IEBA2015‬ #Omni Nashville
