A goal half achieved

Today was day 50 of my 2005-06 season - half of my original goal of skiing 100 days this season. I'm not disappointed that I won't get close to that original target because I feel like I've managed a huge amount of skiing (600,000 vertical feet) and more importantly that I've improved enormously.

I skied today with a crazy group of older Canadians from Toronto that I met on the gondola - Gary, Gary, Allen (or Alan or Allan), Marty, Carol, Estelle, Harriet and Jeannie. I'll post a photo once they email it to me. I like Canadians. Unlike my American neighbours, these people know what a fortnight is.

We had a great time in absolutely perfect spring conditions. As you can see from the map, we covered a fair part of the mountain, and best of all at the end of the day they treated me to my favourite Canadian beer - Moosehead!

The 8th street steakhouse is a place you have to be in the mood for. Me and a buddy ate there a month or so ago and had a good time drinking beer and grilling. I thought the steak turned out good too.
