skiing for free, no lines, my mountains, and why my thighs will be hurting for days

11.23.2011
















yesterday i had the afternoon off from teaching so i thought
i'd take advantage of free time and free lift rides.
a ski resort near us offers free skiing everyday after 3 o'clock. everyday.
that's a solid 1.5 hours of skiing; 5-6 runs {enough for this woman's thighs}.
plus, there were no lines yesterday. let's here it for weekdays!

i went up to get my first turns in for the season,
knowing that, in the backcountry, downhill can be the most difficult.
and this year we're trying to avoid giving the resorts any of our money...
they're all trying to expand and develop into the backcountry. boo.
why can't they just be happy with what they've got,
and keep our skiing {winter} and hiking {summer} as empty as possible?

anyway...

was happy to get up to the mountains to drop into lunge after lunge after lunge {telemarking}.
i'm determined this year to get some better skills...if only just to keep up with these kids.
