While spring is coming, winter is still here
Written by Robert Niles
A few quick notes from the weekend:Tweet
FWIW, it was my first-ever time skiiing, and I sprained my knee on my first day when a gust blew me across the icy bunny slope before my instructor had taught me how to turn. The blizzard hit the next day, which I took off to recover. On Saturday, I headed up the lift for the first time to try my first run... in three feet of fresh powder. (Hey, if I'm gonna fall, might as well do it in that.) Thanks to a 20 mph wind, my group decided it would be best to take me down a tree-sheltered blue run instead of the exposed green one.
Two and a half hours later, I made it down. :-)
