We've all done it...even the pope
I mean we've all sneaked away from our everyday responsibilities to catch a powder day. An AP story has reported that the late Pope John II slipped away from his guards to go skiing more than 100 times early in his papacy. That revelation, that the pope was a powder hound, is in a new book about the pontiff. According to the book, the pope had a season pass and would stand in line with the other skiers.
