Today I went skiing with my dad and sister since we practically had a blizzard last night.
We left the house around 9:20 AM but waited in line for 2.5 hours on the road. Good thing I brought The Demon-Haunted World with me. It wasn’t all bad, because the people waiting in their cars in front of us were having a snowball fight with the people in other cars.
We got a real surprise when we found the parking lot at Alta to be practically empty. We parked in our special spot and walked around like we owned the place for a few minutes. As we were getting ready to wait in line for the lift, my dad realized he forgot his ski coat. How do you even forget your ski coat. I had forgotten my cell phone, so it made me feel less bad. Which is weird.
In all I got two runs in because I was reminded of how badly my feet begin to hurt when I ski. At the end of the first run, I was ready to
cry quit because I couldn’t feel my toes and my heels hurt so badly. I had hot chocolate at one of the lodges and took some pictures. It was cool hearing the explosions from the avalanche control teams, because the sound ricocheted off the sides of the other mountains and filled the whole basin. It was a pretty cool day.
