I saw a penny on the ground today in the ski shop…shiny and face up. I didn’t pick it up, and I wondered if that would jinx my day. But, no, not only did it not jinx my day, I had a completely spectacular day all around. Plus, I felt good that I left that penny for someone else to find.
Although we could use some more fresh snow, we lucked into finding some wind-blown powder stashes. It was as if the Snow Gods were shining down on us today. Generally though, it’s hard-packed and the skiing is fast. I’m just flying down the mountain. I guess I have speed management issues.
It’s easy to fall in love with Jackson Hole. The people here are superbly nice and friendly. The food has been fabulous (in town and on the mountain), and the skiing is the BOMB!!
FOOD AND BEVERAGE HIGHLIGHTS:
“LOCAL”….spectacular delicious dinner at this in-town restaurant.
“BLUE LION”…..ditto…and, the classical guitarist in the lounge played Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody. Pretty cool stuff! I almost started singing, but didn’t want to embarrass Mark, ’cause it was a classy little place.
“COULOIR”…..lunch on the mountain at the top of the gondola….the best gourmet sandwich I’ve ever had anywhere, anytime. And, the views! The panoramic photo up top was taken from our table at lunch today.
“MANGY MOOSE”…legendary apres-ski restaurant/bar at the bottom of the mountain, by the tram tower….nice Kamikaze shots, and a fun rock/retro/country band playing..fun, fun place!
Finally, on the food front, I’ve had my own little breakfast epiphany. Seems that I totally CAN get by for at least 3 hours, on a breakfast of coffee and a peanut butter flavored Power Bar. Who knew?!
So that wraps up Day #2. I have another funny little story to tell you, but I don’t want to drag on. Remind me, and I’ll tell you about the Great Chocolate Cake Discussion.
