Mary- we are hoping to get out this Sunday- the weather man says skies will be good. I'll keep you posted. The next Tuesday we are off to the beach in Naples, FL!

Rachel - I just got an email that snowbird has gotten 100" in the past 10 days - that is just not fair!!!!!!! I think I'm a powder jinx! Well, I guess I'm just going to have to try again next year!!! LOL!
I hope you daughter likes her new skis.

Mary,
So glad to hear you had a great trip- come back!!! We are supposed to be DUMPED on tomorrow. It's a bummer too- they are saying don't go out on the roads. We just got my DD new K2s on clearance today at REI.

Hmm. I guess it's too late for me to take up with a ski tuner. ;-) My dad used to do all that stuff when I was a kid. Oh, and my best friend's mom owned a ski shop.

I was out at Snowbird from 3/17 through 3/22. LOL! You got dumped with snow the day after we left! Although we didn't hit fresh powder, it was still an awesome trip and I loved both Snowbird and Alta. I got my husband to rent skis so we could experience Alta. I wish we could have tried Solitude or some of the others, but the trip was too short. We stayed at the Cliff which is slopeside, and had a wonderful experience. Rachelrb, glad you got to take a day off skiing - those are the best, especially with fresh powder - woo hoo! I'm skiing Okemo, VT tomorrow - have heard it will rain, but I'm ignoring the forecast, with fingers crossed. I hate to give it up for the season and springtime is my favorite.

I am going to ski Spirit Mountain in Duluth tomorrow and then up to Lutsen mountains from there for our Farewell to the season send off. It's been very spring conditions and is now cold again, so ice will be my theme this weekend. www.lutsen.com Not exactly like skiing anything in Utah. :)

Broken ski gear is scary. I'm lucky that I fell for my ski tuner (no kidding... many say it must be meant to be... since he likes to fix my stuff and I like to wear it out) so he does a big old work over each time I go out and again when I'm back. I'm glad you're ok.

I've never ridden a snowmobile; however, I have pulled one out of a ditch.

I'm guessing your way was better.

Just to fill you in-
Skiing was good. It was very empty. At first I went up to Strawberry Gondola (see www.snowbasin.com for map and details) which is pretty remote. On my way down the mountain I hit a patch that was 'icy corduroy'. Oh, my I was VIBRATING over the snow. It wasn't fun but I made it through. Before reaching the gondola to go up again I felt a weird sort of 'bump' on one of my skis but didn't think anything of it. When we got to the top of the gondola I dropped my skis to put them on and one of the brakes fell off! I thought, 'oh no, my ski is breaking!' I went to the gondola lady and she put me back on the gondola- going down! Initially that was kind of scary- I figured I'd going flying down the hill (duh, it goes down as fast as it goes up). So then at the bottom I got a snowmobile ride to the base. That was way cool- I hadn't been on a snowmobile before. When I got to base the ski rental place tightened up both skis and I was fine.

Currently we are getting MORE snow. Hopefully it will stop by Sunday as I am a fair weather skier and I want to go back!

Sarah (and anyone else)-
You are welcome to my house ANY TIME to benefit from the wonders of Snowbasin. I need to see that article to understand why it won. I do love it there but I don't know that I would say it's the 'best' in Utah. A bit too pretentious at times.

February's issue of Ski magazine has an article in it titled... "Snowbasin, Utah - The Best Mountain You've Never Skied."

I nearly had to pout like a child yesterday thinking you got to go and I didn't. I'm over it now... I think....

Ok...

TOMORROW I'll be over it.

Woo hoo! Enjoy yourself--YOU DESERVE IT! (I wish I could join you. I'll probably get out this weekend, though.)

I LOVE IT!

Good for you and remember to shake off your boss. You know you worked your a$$ off. You know you did a great job. (and if you don't, I'll tell you so) You can reward yourself for your dedication and commitment to a job well done.

Have a BLAST today for me.

I'm sitting in 55 degree weather, in the rain... without a lick of snow around for about 200 miles.

After a stressful month of working late following by my boss throwing me under a bus after delivering a project on time (ok, not literally under the bus) I am taking off work tomorrow (with all the comp time I accrued this month that will evaporate the 31st) and I am GOING SKIING!!! WOO HOO! It was 60 last week but starting last night it snowed! All night on the mountain and all day today! Snowbasin, here I come!
