The Snowbird website today read, "Open weekends only through May 29th, or maybe even longer..." Next weekend, my roommate Brendan and I are taking a road trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico, so this ski day could very well be my last of this ski season.
May 2006 Skiing Archive
I'll be honest. I wasn't particularly excited or even interested in going skiing today. My lengthy layoff from skiing, which included my graduate school graduation and a trip to Las Vegas, put skiing on the back burner of my proverbial stove.
It's surreal to me that I drove to and from Snowbird today with the air conditioning on in my car. I walked to Snowbird Center wearing shorts and a t-shirt--and I was hot. I skied (again) without a hat or jacket. Instead, I wore just my ski pants (sans long-underwear), a wicking long-underwear shirt and a t-shirt over that layer just for looks. I can't believe that it's May and that I'm still having ski days better than almost any ski day I ever enjoyed at Bristol during my first nine (or so) years of skiing.
