Didn’t ski on Thursday or Friday. Thursday the wind was very bad and only a couple lifts were open. Friday was pretty much the same, but we went up anyway to check it out. They told us they were definitely only gonna have a couple lifts open and nothing else would open up. When we went home and checked they had opened the main lift, though. So perhaps we shoulda stayed. I think we made the correct decision with the data presented, though.
Besides, because we didn’t go skiing that day, Pat and I went with Mrs. Anthony to do some cross country skiing by the river. I went with my normal skies. It was an ice sheet and not very fun for anyone, although I got a bit of a thrill from using downhill skis to cross country ski on an ice sheet. Plus, it was good cardio.
We also saw The Spirit. Not sure normal people would like it very much. I thought it was pretty good. It’s like hyper-noir or something. Not easy to explain. Definitely some highly enjoyable characters and lines and stuff. /shrug
Besides that there was lots of hot tubing and eating and WoWing. Hot tubs are good. Food is good. WoW is good.
We weren’t really planning on skiing on the day we drove home, but we changed those plans and went up early. Everything was open and everyone was there. The lines were pretty annoying, but the conditions were excellent. The end of the day I was on my own and went over to the back chairs, which they opened at mid-day and which had been closed for several days. It was great fun. Top had like a foot of smooth powder, and at the bottom are these crazy cat tracks that I barreled down so fast I got air on some of the little hills. Went off some jumps, went through the trees, went outside the ski park boundaries. It was glorious.
Beginning of the day I ran over Hannah. Other than that it was pretty fun.
Definitely was a good trip.
Oh, and my arms got better. Eventually.
