Ed is a passionate guy, and in a passion based business it can get toasty quick.
I will vouch for his business as one that provide mucho powder, great scenery and damn good food. The runs are everything from tight cornice types to great open mountainside.
Don't throw him under the proverbial bus for taking the bait. That passion will also provide you a damn good time.
