Bill Hall is a 79-year-old man who regularly hits the slopes in West Michigan. He is known around the ski hill as Wild Bill.

"I love skiing, I love the winter, I love the mountain," said Bill. "Anybody you see out here, they're here to have a good time. They just make you smile."

He is turning 80 on April 1, and this year he is celebrating by skiing. Bill plans on being in Whitefish, Mont. with the Grand Rapids Ski Club.

"When I woke up this morning with my swollen leg and swollen ankle, I felt about 50," he laughs.

The 79-year-old stays in shape year round by running 5Ks and power walking during the off season. In 2017, he took third place in the Bridge Run for his age group.

"Don't let anybody tell you can't do something," said Bill.
