If you are lucky and can sneak away from work to ski powder, why call in sick? Mobile devices have created the ability to bring the office to the slopes. However, my cardinal rule is to shut everything off when going downhill. The last thing you want is a cell phone ringing through your face shots and spoiling an epic run.
The most ludicrous move I have made was to jump into Vail’s back with 18 inches of fresh powder just 15 minutes from a mandatory conference call. With no cell signal in the Bowls I jumped on the Tea Cup Express and raced into the lift shack joined the conference, muted the speaker, and ran out for another deep run. I got 3 laps and still got credit for being on the call.
