Actually, I haven't skied much at all in bounds this year. It was nice to get out today, although I somehow managed to bust out my sidewall. My alpine skis were old, and now they are shot. Bummer!
The skiing will only get better as the day goes on, but I needed to return to town today. The scene in the valley early this afternoon, with snow cover and rain reminded me of a winters day in upstate NY. Grey, dreary, and terrible for skiing. Thank goodness we have a big mountain range here to get above the snow level.
