Dudes, I skied and lived to tell the tale! I only fell TWICE! And I got off the chairlift successfully every time. BOO YEAH. I did not even attempt to go beyond the beginner slopes, but I’m deeming the day a win.  Having experienced skiers around was definitely a huge help! Adam and I stuck together all day as we worked on snaking down the slopes aka controlling our speed, which was a lot of fun. Gotta love a ski date. Note: Fellow SLPs/those against traumatic brain injuries (everyone, raise your hands!), you’ll be pleased to know I splurged for a helmet rental.

We wound up heading up to the lake house earlier than expected—-which meant spending two nights there instead of one! Definitely a good choice. The five of us played many games (Guesstures & Catchphrase were featured), drank lots of beer, and baked many a frozen pizza. I took everyone to experience my favorite local, small town diner this morning….such yummy hash browns (and locally made jam!).

Enough talk—-onto the visuals! I hope you had an amazing weekend. Here’s wishing us all luck heading back to work…I’m busy having unhealthy-sure-to-be-disappointed snow day fantasies.

    i took mark up to granite peak for a long weekend for his 30th bday a few years back. i hadnt been skiing in years. i didnt want to to anything but the bunny hill, but after a few hours, he convinced me that if i stayed on the lift, there was one more hill that would be safe for me to ski down.

    WRONG. next stop = black diamond! i am a TOTAL wimp and there is only one way down! it was TERRIFYING up there! i walked the whole way down….crying. it was so scary! we laugh about it now, haha!
