Not a Bluebird Day

December 21, 2020

Today was the kind of ski day that inspires visitors to write unflattering reviews of my home mountain. The temperature hovered around freezing most of the day, so the precipitation varied along the cold rain to wet snow spectrum, which meant goggles covered in water droplets and soggy coats and pants and gloves. The higher up on the mountain one went, the more fog and wind there was (no, the wind didn’t blow away the fog, but it did blow over two ski racks outside the lodge at the top). Nevertheless, I was out there making turns.
