My husband, brother, fiance, brother-in-law and one stray friend went skiing up at Mt. Baker today. Click here to learn more about Mt. Baker (the most glaciated of the Cascade volcanoes). There was 5 inches of new snow and it was snowing lightly all day. While the snow wasn’t great for visibility, it did keep the ice down to a minimum.
I never would have believed it if it hadn’t happened to me but the new K2 “True Luv” skis that my brother Erik got me for Christmas totally improved my skiing game. I enjoyed the skiing expedition much more with these new skis, even in my old gear. My gear is so old that my goggles literally fell apart after a few runs. I had to buy a new pair up at the mountain. Either way, I felt almost graceful with the new skis and almost capable of getting down the mountain without harming myself or others.
It was a tiring day, even with the new skis. My legs feel like jello and my calves are bruised from the rear-entry boots (from 8th grade!) but I wouldn’t change anything about it. Quality time with family is so very special. And bonus, we all made it off the mountain with no injuries.
