Silver lining

When I ski as badly as I did yesterday, I'm always motivated by the fact that tomorrow will be better. Well tomorrow is today and it was indeed much, much better.

I was at the gondola at 8:40 am so I could ski the groomers while they were fresh. There was no line, although I did wait seven minutes for the Storm Peak Express to open at 9 am. It was worth it to be first down a perfectly groomed Buddy's Run.

Here's today's track. 16,540 vertical ft (season total 1,047,235 ft) in 1:59 - 8,339 vertical ft per hour which is my highest rate so far this season. It helped that I didn't ski a whole lot of bumps today - Storm Peak face and Norther was all.

I think I've earned the pancakes that Marie and I are about to have for Fat Tuesday.
