A Week in Review

Now that last week’s major storm is over and another one has just begun, I thought I would catch you up on my last week with all the powder skiing since there wasn’t much time to blog during the 70” of new snow!! It all began on Wednesday while skiing with my brother. He doesn’t get to ski much so when he is here it’s all nothing until he tells me he is done!

The weather was a bit intense as the snow continued and the visibility wasn’t great. But there were no worries because if you fell it was into A LOT of soft powder. We started in Lady Morgan bowl and did about four laps. I had my nieces and my sons who picked up powder skiing quite fast for their first time. I was most worried about my son Stefan considering the snow depth was taller than him but his determination to keep up certainly got him through. We made sure to check out the Daly Chutes. My nieces who don’t ski much both rallied and jumped in. I was so impressed with their determination to enjoy the conditions. Of course, I didn’t put them down Challenger so we skied Chute 10. After Stefan started running out of gas we made our way to Ontario Bowl before breaking for lunch at Silver Lake Restaurant. We lapped Ontario Bowl some more and it was so good everybody agreed to keep going. This was about noon time and the powder was still deep and barely tracked out.  I think Ontario Bowl is some of the best powder skiing you can get.

My brother was still ready for more after lunch so we went into Sunset Trees. When I ski with groups (even if they are my family) I stay in the back to make sure everyone makes it out or I’m there to help (in case of snow snake). Being the youngest, my brother will never tell me if he is getting tired. This is his time to eat up the skiing. But, I did finally get him to say he had enough once he double ejected and we looked for his skis for a good 15 minutes (lucky by standards).

The next day I had some clients so I decided to spread the love and sent my family to Park City Mountain Resort. Where my children did their job and toured the family around. It is a rough life for 9 and 6 year old boys to know the mountain so well and so soon.  Then the 24th I skied in the morning with a new client on Bald Mountain. This part of the mountain lived up to its usual skiing. It was a beautiful morning and it felt like we were on top of the world or in heaven (as you can see in the photo below).

We skied above the clouds most of the morning. We ripped up Stein’s Way, Nabob and Tycoon. In the afternoon I skied with my family again and we decided to have the family race at the NASTAR course which included my 2 brothers, my 2 sons and myself . The outcome can usually be guessed, but this year my brothers won. Yes, Craig won fair and square because Eric and I missed some gates and got disqualified! I haven’t lived this down and I don’t think I will until I can redeem myself when he returns late January. However, I can’t forget to mention that Craig did get in trouble for hitting the gates. We left the mountain after a great day of skiing to go home and wait for Santa and so Craig could clout.

I’m amazed at how great the skiing remains days after the storm. Our grooming is impeccable and the bowls and trees are still soft and not bumped out. Yesterday and today I had clients and I brought them into places they wanted to go and new places that hadn’t been to.  There are still some good lines in Centennial Trees and X-Files! Rumor has it, that storm hitting today and tomorrow will be bigger than the last. Stay tuned, because if so I will be in Mayflower Bowl. I haven’t skied Mayflower all year because there’s just too many other areas to get to!
