The main theme of this piece came to me while I was skiing with my aunt & uncle during a visit to their place in Utah. The arrangement heard here came several years later. I wanted to portray the movements involved when hitting the slopes.
When it comes to providing a sense of action, very little music does it better than the Merrie Melodies of the classic Warner Bros. Looney Toons. I like to think of this tune as a tribute to the two musicians responsible for most of the Merrie Melodies' themes and arrangements: Raymond Scott and Carl Stalling.
