Wake Up

A little Wiz for the post….PLAY IT LOUD!!!

Was today a dream?    Six inches at Homewood that skiied like a foot.  15 laps.  No lines.  Fresh turns every…single…run.  Check out the awesome iphone shots!!

The Face at 10:30.  Still nowhere closed to being tracked out.

I was so ancy and amped on every lift ride back up.  I couldn’t sit still.  I kept thinking “This snow isn’t gonna last long.  I gotta get it while the gettin’s good!”  But lap after lap, the only tracks I was crossing were my own.

I finally calmed down a bit, took some deep breaths, relished the fact that I wasn’t dreaming, and just kept giggling to myself.

No Tracks!??!!  I fixed that.

I kept thinking how the day was like a metaphor for my life.  “Things are just too good to be true.”  “How freakin’ lucky am I?” “I never want this to end.” “If this is a dream, I don’t wanna wake up.”

2009, 2010, & half of ’11 were tough years for me.  But ever since I got to Cali things have just kept getting better….and better.  It’s amazing how the lows in life can provide a contrast and make you appreciate the highs that much more.

I'd been here once before and came back for more

Before I knew it, my legs were shot and I was ready for my last run, which was the best of the day.  Hiked out to Quail face for sick lake views and about 15 sick turns.

Such a good feeling to finish on a high.  So stoked on skiing and life right  now.  So lucky to be alive! ….have such awesome people around me!  …and perfect health!  Year Thirty Three started with a bang and I’m absolutely determined to make it the best year yet!

Oh, and how sweet is that song!?!
