Back on the Slopes

December 30, 2021

I did go skiing today. It was still very cold (though not as windy), and it still felt like an effort to get all layered up and put on my Yaktrax and walk down to the village. I did get a bit of a boost from debuting my duct tape patch on my ski pants; that makes me feel like I have some sort of odd local skier cred.

Once I ran the gauntlet of the holiday week crowds in the locker room (wearing a KF94 mask because cloth is not up to the job here and now) and got out on the snow, it was pretty good. I did more runs than I’d planned in my head, even. It helped that there was some sun, weak though it was; I even saw a “snowbow” from one of the lifts (sort of like this one). I was glad I went out, even if my butt did get cold after a while.
