“Whoa!” is all we can say. Our completely favorite part was meeting the Athletes and getting their signatures.  Then, watching them catch big air!

My Li’l Sis and I totally loved watching Chloe Kim. She’s so close to our age and she won the gold.  It us think we could win the Gold one day.  I need to get out and start practicing again. Good thing we will be in Beaver Creek for the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in just a few days.

Congratulations Lindsey Vonn on 63 Trophies! You Rock
Congratulations Lindsey Vonn on 63 Trophies! You Rock

Mort and I are so excited for Lindsey Vonn.  I told Mort that Lindsey had won 63 World Cup Championships – the most in the world. Mort thought that was AWESOME!

I imagined myself and Mort skiing alongside Lindsey going supersonic fast.  She was fast.  The fastest! Mort and I wondered what would it be like to have 63 trophies?  What would it be like to cross the finish line first 63 times!

What would it be like to be the best at something?

And that was the thing Mort and I were most excited about. Lindsey Vonn was the best, THE FASTEST. So, Mort and I decided we wanted to be the fastest.  We spent the rest of the day getting our skis ready for our adventure in Vail and Beaver Creek for the FIS World Ski Championships.

Mort and I can’t wait to see Lindsey race right in front of our eyes.  It’s going to be EPIC!

I can’t wait to see you there.

Call for Illustrators Eli and Mort’s Epic Adventures, Vail

Have you always wanted to be a published illustrator and older than my little sister who is 5 but definitely not really old, like less than 18? Then come to our call for illustrators on Sunday, November 2nd at the Alpine Arts Center in Edwards at 4:00 PM.

Mort and I are planning our next adventure in Vail! We had awesome kids from around the Vail Valley Illustrate our first book in Beaver Creek.  Now we are looking for friends to help us illustrate our next adventure in Vail.

Here are some examples of the SWEET images in the first book. This is by Ella Smiley, our youngest amazing artist.  She is only 7 — The Beaver Creek 2015 World Ski Championships night sky.

And another cool drawing by Sophie Russell, Age 11 of Blue Moose Pizza!

I know they are so cool aren’t they?  Anyway, Mort and I really want you to come.

We’ve even got pizza coming from the Blue Moose, so your parents won’t have to worry about dinner.

It is a competition.  So you will have to work really hard and practice. Mort and I are used to practicing skiing and snowboarding. But I can’t draw. Neither can Mort. That’s why we need you!

:-) See you soon!
