Its a Powder Day!!!
|Snowboarder in Training|
While we knew a storm was heading in we didn't anticipate quite how amazing it would be. Thursday morning we woke up slopeside to 12" in fresh powder and it was still dumping. We had driven up to Winter Park the afternoon before and so far James was loving it! We were hopefully this attitude would last through the next couple days when we took him to a new daycare. James tends to clam up and get really shy in new environments. So with fresh snow on the ground, we bundled up James, crossed our fingers and headed out to daycare.
|Lovin' the Cheeky Monk!|
The term epic gets thrown around quite a bit, but honestly Thursday was epic! Everyone was talking about how the snow hadn't been that good in years! With the falling snow we had fresh tracks all day long! It took a couple runs to really feel comfortable on my board again, but it's like the old adage just like riding a bike. My turns came back, my independent leg motion took over and we cruised all over Mary Jane. A good powder day is never complete without apres so we took James to the Cheeky Monk for a couple beers and an early dinner. He loved it! Totally hamming it up with the tables around us and gorging himself on fish and fries. Thankfully James partied just as hard at daycare as we did on the mountain and we were all fast asleep quite early...dreaming of more powder.
