(This is me keeping busy & killing time until my next u/s follie check in the morning. I’m so nervous/excited!)
Dec 1, 2004 – I moved to Colorado “for the winter” between undergrad and grad school
Since I obviously still live in Colorado, y’all can see how that worked out. LOL
Maybe some day I’ll go back to get my Masters, but for now, I’m living life in the mountains!
6 years ago (’04-’05):
I was still a skier, but tried snowboarding a couple of times. I fell. A lot.
Stuck to green (easy) runs.
5 years ago (’05-’06):
I started getting more confident with snowboarding – went a few times with friends.
Started riding blue (intermediate) runs.
I still fell. A lot.
4 years ago (’06-’07):
My first real winter commuting to work in the resort town and riding with an unlimited ski pass.
My coworkers E & N taught me to be a real life snowboarder. 🙂
Still loved the cruisers (blues), but started riding double blue and a little black.
3 years ago (’07-’08):
Working close to home so it’s a 45 min. commute to the mountain.
Still bought an unlimited ski pass b/c lots of my friends went up and we carpooled often!
I was working a lot and still commuting to the mountain with friends – bought a 10 day pass (I think? Might have been an unlimited).
Spent a lot of time trying to get better at moguls and steeps.
1 year ago (’09-’10):
I bought a 10 day pass after making sure they could put it on hold for a year because I was thinking I’d be pregnant anyway so I wouldn’t need an unlimited pass. HA.
Still got to ride with random friends. Finally feel confident riding anywhere on the mountain!
…though that doesn’t mean I didn’t still fall. A lot. 🙂
I bought an unlimited pass…sort of hoping for the Murphy’s Law of if I had a pass I’d get pregnant.
I know know better than that by now. 🙂
That being said, today was another awesome powder day on the mountain! It’s the last week of the season and I don’t know if the RE will let me snowboard after the IUI, so I’m getting as many days in now as I can!
If any of you ever want to vacation in southwest Colorado and ski/snowboard at one of the best resorts in the country, hit me up. 🙂
