“Ronnie and I (Bailey) were heading to Colorado to visit Zoe and David and try our hands at snowboarding for the first time. A couple of times a year I pester Ronnie to come with me to Colorado, so this was standard procedure for us. We get to BTR airport, go through security, and Ronnie gets called back for a bag check. He quickly looked at me and said oh shoot it’s my lotion! and ran to the security guard. In Ronnie’s panicked state the night before, he had packed his ENTIRE lotion bottle in his bag – but he did have the presence of mind to put it in its own TSA approved ziplock bag (impressive), but he had also sneaked in a very impressive rock. For the rest of that day, from our flights to being picked up in Denver and driving to Steamboat, I was blissfully unaware that anything fishy was going on. Little did I know, he and Zoe had been scheming to get me to the top of the mountain the next morning. Zoe and David brought up the idea that we take the gondola to the top right when it opened and check out the trail to see if we thought we could handle it; about 5 minutes later our bartender told us that particular trail was called the White Ribbon of Death – I’m thinking we probably couldn’t handle it. However, I’m not one to miss out on a great view or photo op, so we were still on track!

The next morning, December 1, everyone except me was PANICKING to get ready in time. I had a leisurely morning and enjoyed my coffee, had some breakfast, and almost walked in on Ronnie getting the ring out of his bag (oops). We got on the gondola and headed for the top when the most amazing thing happened – SNOW started falling! It wasn’t supposed to snow all weekend, and yet here it was making us look like a real life snow globe in this gondola. I noticed Ronnie was nervous, but I just figured it was because of his fear of heights and the fact that we were headed for the White Ribbon of Death. When we finally got to the top (a 5 minute trip for me and a 5 year trip for Ronnie), we spotted the perfect spot to take a group photo. Miraculously, there was a couple there that just happened to have professional photography equipment and offered to take our photo – nothing out of the ordinary there. We took our group picture and then they suggested we get a picture of just Ronnie and me, it was his first snow after all! We took about 2 normal photos when Ronnie turned to me and got down on one knee. I thought he was just being a nerd and didn’t want to waste these kind strangers’ time so I naturally asked what he was doing and told him to get up. He let me know that he simply couldn’t do that and then he pulled out The Rock – and I said OF COURSE! BEST. VACATION. EVER. “
