Last Ski Day?

It'll be a warm day for the slopes (low 40s), but we want to get in at least one more trip. We're heading to Pat's Peak, meeting friends for their annual "let's take the kids and see if they might like to ski" outing. (The dad is an excellent skier, but the others--born and raised in Texas--are still novices.)

As my husband likes to say, "This year our goal was to move from greens to ... medium greens." And we achieved that, making several runs from the top of the peak (down the "easiest way down" slopes, which nevertheless have some steep sections). We didn't start skiing till we were in our own low 40s, so just being able to accomplish that has been a triumph. Our son, being a kid, is of course much better than we are and has taken up snowboarding as well. (If you saw him, you'd assume he was a boarder, with his lanky blond hair and lanky tall frame.)

This coming week's weather was supposed to get into the 60s and 70s, but now the forecast is calling for more like highs in the 40s and 50s. Does that mean we might be able to squeeze out one more weekend next Sunday?

Eh--probably not. Better to strike while the iron is cold. Wish us luck on the slushy slopes!
