Are you going skiing today?

My friend asked me if I was going skiing today. I had to be honest. I am totally burned out of the snow plow. I am tired of the magic carpet and the Little Beaver lift. I can ski down those runs backwards, and I do quite often. I think I have forgotten how to use my ski poles and how it feels to ski down a black. I am just kiddy hilled out.

This season has taught me a lot. I finally understand why my dad would hang back on the mountain to "watch us" ski down first. There are two reasons I have concluded...
1. To pick us up when we fall, it's a lot easier to get to your kid when you are above them then when you have to hike back up to get them
2. That way you can actually sort of ski beyond the ski plow.

Lets just say the outside of my quads are quite developed this season. I am not burned out from skiing, and I am planning on going this week. I just couldn't bring myself to do it today... maybe Friday?  I do love Beaver Mountains and all of it's lifts, I am excited to ski with my kiddies and I love doing it, but today was just not one of those days. Happy Lazy Wednesday!

pretty soon we won't be able to keep up with the kids! One of us will say, "are you going up today" and the other will reply, "no I am too sore from skiing the trees with the kids all day yesterday" ;) I wish we could go up with your Friday! It is suppose to be toasty warm and sunny! Perfect day for the little Beav!
