Day 1 of Unknown

December 5, 2019

Today, finally, almost a week after the mountain opened (and four days later than last year), I got my first day in for the 2019-2020 ski season. It was a bit warm (right around freezing), and foggy, and there’s not much terrain open yet, but it was still so so good to get back out there.

2019-2020 Ski Day 1

One of these years I’m going to prepare my body for the demands of skiing before I actually start doing it, but this was not that year. I haven’t had my boots on since I took them off for the last time in spring. I haven’t been on the ski trainer in I don’t know how long. And I certainly wasn’t on the ski trainer in my boots at any time in recent memory. So despite it being a very short day on nothing very challenging, my thighs and knees were feeling it. I’ll just have to ski myself into ski shape; I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again.
