C-List Actors are F-List Skiers
Actors who are better known for their former significant others (in this case Hilary Swank, Michelle Pfeiffer, and, um, a moose) than for their own work apparently not only vacation in groups, they also suck at it together.
After the powerhouse trio of Rob Morrow, Chad Lowe and Fisher Stevens got lost while skiing in Aspen, they had to rely on another group of skiers they encountered--one of whom was wise enough to be in possession of a cell phone--to call the ski patrol to come and rescue them.
Depending on how long it took for help to arrive, that must have been a pretty awkward wait for everyone involved, as those in the second group intermittently struggled with urges to ask (1) Lowe about Swank, (2) Stevens to "do the Indian guy from Short Circuit" and (3) Morrow if he was Brian Benben in between excruciating periods of silence.
