Today. Today was a good day. Skiing in the afternoon and rock climbing at night.
Alta was bitter cold and the wind whipped icy mist from the snow machines over the peak. It was my first day riding the chairs after many days of hiking. Nothing beats cruising down groomers on a sunny day! Well, except powder. Alta currently has a base of 20". Please, pray for snow other than this:
Today also marks the beginning of Christmas season (for me at least -- there are quite a few people I know that started celebrating the day after Halloween Lauren Rice). But I wait until December. So merry Christmas to one and all!
