Amazing. I was thinking about him not too long ago. He's in inspiration for us "older folks". Glad he's still going.

Happy Birthday George!

SkiDog, I think you are a year off, Wikipedia has his birth date as Jan 22, 1915, That will make him 98 tomorrow.

There are some youtube vidios of him skiing at 90 and looking good. There was also some more recent ones of him attempting to barefoot frma sling attached to a boom, that didn't go so well. They seem to have been taken down the video as some considered it to be elder abuse.
