I had the opportunity to go to Stowe, VT last week on business, and stayed Saturday to get in some skiing.
Conditions were not great – it was too warm, and by mid-afternoon the snow was soft, sort of slushy. Still, to borrow an expression from the game of golf, a day on the mountain beats a day in the office, eh?
In the moment, it was, well, it was not epic like A-Basin, CO. I have to go with spiritually uplifting. I can tell you I was singing along to Kiss at the top of lungs on the way back home afterwards, and just totally chilled out and feeling good.
I wish the family could have been there – I really enjoy seeing my son ski. The girls are not too crazy about it, but they enjoy the hot chocolate!
First ski of the season, and even though I am in shape, I guess I am not in ski shape. I felt it, just a little, but I felt it.
Here is a video from the lift. I may look like heck, but I felt totally there!
