Open Slopes

I just had a great morning to myself. I booked the day off work, made some plans and got up early with the girls.

Once I dropped them off at daycare/school, I headed to our local hill, Ski Martock. It’s fairly small and some might say it’s not a mountain but it sure has a lot of character, passion and great memories. It’s one of two hills I grew up skiing on.

I was all by myself. No friends. No family. Just me.  I arrived before the lift open and was on the hill at 9 am sharp with a handful of senior’s. Normally, I’d try to ski with my Dad but he already had plans to ski at the other hill with his friend.

As I glided over the freshly groomed tracks, I quickly finished my run and got back on the chair lift. I had no commitments other then to ski by myself. Little did I know, I would run into 2 of my former high school teachers while in the lodge and on the chair lift. We caught up and skied together.

It felt so good to rip down the hill, carving my turns, feeling the burning in my thighs and the rush of the -10C (-18 with windchill) air on my cheeks as they occasionally peeked out from under my neck warmer. Oh, I love skiing.

It’s a long weekend here (Heritage/Family Day) on Monday so I took today and Tuesday off to enjoy some time to myself and get things done around the house.

Off to vacuum and clean bathrooms – fun 🙂 So glad I “played” first thing this morning or this cleaning bit would just suck 😉

Hope you all have a great weekend. 

Any plans?

We’re getting more snow..surprise!!!
