Last weekend, Jason and I drove up to the mountains on Saturday for some weekend skiing. Last week, the temperatures were really warm in the mountains, and there was no new snow, so conditions were terrible (VERY ICY!). We skiied two runs and left, because we were not having fun and felt it was dangerous. It was sad, and we thought it was the end of our ski season.
But, over the past several days, a big snowstorm hit the mountains and dropped over a foot of fresh snow at some of the ski resorts. Woo hoo!!! We went to Vail today with one of my co-workers and her brother and had an AMAZING day! It was deep powder, which is a little hard to ski in but feels nice when you fall, and it lightly snowed all day. Fun fun fun! It was a great way to spend the day!
