Every year I wonder is it worth it as I sort out the logistics, catch the early flight out of Grenada, hassle my through US immigration [ not so bad this year ] and drive into the mountains.
Well as I got my ski legs back and was cutting big lazy arcs in the snow practicing my GS turns my heart was singing and I knew why I do it.
I am really glad that I have a pass this year that allows me to choose from a variety of resorts so today it was a case of avoiding the traffic. As you can see the road to the ski resorts was solid, stop go and averaging under 10 mph.
If the weather is as forecast I will make the trip to Beaver Creek tomorrow and hope to avoid the queues.
Life is good in the mountains.
