I decided to post another skiing picture today, because I feel like I’m ready for winter again. I mean, don’t get me wrong, summer’s nice and all. But this season, I never had a chance to get my “farewell” run in. Usually, on my last day of skiing for the year, I take a few extra moments to appreciate my last run, I pay a little bit more attention to how each turn feels, to try to burn it into my memory, since I know it’ll be a long hot summer before I get to head up on the hill again. This time around, I was very confident that I had at least one or two more days left, so it didn’t even occur to me that the turns would be the last. Sigh.

All that talk about this last season, but yet this picture isn’t even from then. it’s from 2007. This was a nice sunny spring powder day at Crystal Mountain. Well, it started off as a powder day, but as you can imagine, bright sunshine in the springtime meant that the slopes facing the sun (those that face south-ish, like this one, called “Sunnyside”, duh) got pretty sloppy. But that’s fine, you expect that sort of thing in the spring.

Yeah, I guess that’s all I’ve got to say about this one, have a great weekend!
