|This ones for Kare|
While eating I learned some of Kare's story. He has lived all over the world, grew up in Norway and lived in India as a tailor to the elite. He skied in Kashmir and his stories were wonderful, they inspired me and made me dream and still make me dream. Of course we donated product to Kare as we knew that the money it made went directly to teaching people how to tele ski, Kare truly created life long skiers who were passionate about the sport.
I had the pleasure of being present at many, many more Kare cakes, some at Garmont, some at Rossignol and some at Karhu. All of them were special and all them were looked forward too. I also got to ski with Kare on a few occasions and I wish I could remember all the great comments he had as he skied as they always drew a smile on my face.
Kare's friends are all getting together this week to celebrate his life. I can only imagine the names and faces that will attend that party, I truly wish I was there and could attend, but since I cant, I will settle with a quite moment and crank a few turns to his memory instead....
