I was just curious about who the oldest slalom course skier might be on teamtalk that is a member. I am 52. I am sure someone can top that.

slalom skiing? What's that? Is that the skinny wakeboard that you go really fast on?

Made a few passes last summer at 32mph and I am soon to be 56, does this count?

About 20 +/- years ago a gentleman by the name of Warren Witherell was skiing the course here in NJ........if he is still with us he would definitely be the oldest slalom skier that I know of. (not sure if he would even be on this forum either)

Anyone know this man or have more recent info on him?

I didn't get out all that much last year.... was a bad summer for me. BUt I did get out more than I thought I would.

I know I am far from the oldest, but I am planning on skiing for quite a few more years.

When I was at McCorrmick Ski Schools years ago, there was a man about 70 that would showup to ski about every other day. and he was good!

I don't think I'll ever beat that! Congrats to all the course skiers over 50 though.
