So over the course of the week last week and again today Iíve been seeing and reading twitter posts all over about the snow falls in Utah and other places out west. I am really getting the itch now, I am truly excited to get out on the skiís again this winter.
Last winter I spent most of my time on the snowmobile than I did on my skiís but I am bound and determined to get at least 20 good days of skiing in this winter. Normally I would say that is paltry as ďback in the dayĒ, read back in high school I was getting over 100+ days of skiing in between my down hill races, free skiing, and out west trips combined, however with lack of time, and responsibilities at home, and the fact that my wife doesnít ski forces me to lessen the amount of time i have to get out on the skiís. Hopefully when my daughter is old enough I will be able to use her as an excuse to get out skiing more.
Of the last 4 years or so Iíve been going out west with a good friend of mine, Richard, who has recently picked up the love for skiing as much as I have, and it has been a yearly occurrence for us now to head out west. The first year we went out west to Montana, which was my first time to Big Sky and absolutely loved it. Then the last 4 years since Big Sky, Richard, and the crew and myself have been going out west to Utah ever since. Utah for some reason is one of the absolute best places I have been for skiing ever. I grew up skiing Colorado and thought it couldnít get any better, man was I wrong. The skiing in Utah is just that good. Granted, to date, I have yet to get a powder day in Utah but this winter I am hoping to break that spell. My goal is to get at lest one powder day in Utah, not sure how I will be able to pull it off but I am bound and determined to pull it off, even if I have to fly out just for the day and then fly back home the next morning, I will do it if I have to.
So there you have it. Winter is just around the corner and I can not wait. Some people are already sick and tired of my twitter posts (cough Ross) but I could care less. Winter is my passion, and any activity I can do in the winter, skiing, snowmobiling, you name it, that is what I will talk about. So until next time.
