No haters please, but, it was an amazing POWDER DAY @ Jackson Hole today!! Snowed last night, all morning, and all day. And it’s still snowing at 6:45 pm. And it’s supposed to snow all night, so manana might be even more amazing!
If you’re a Facebook friend of mine, then you had your chance to join us on this trip. A month ago, I posted about this trip and asked if anybody wanted to join us. There were no takers. So now, you have only yourselves to blame.
Last winter, we did a trip to Mammoth, and it snowed so much, that we got snowed in for two extra days. And now we’re wondering if we might get snowed in here as well. Really, next time I invite y’all to join us on a ski trip, think long and hard before saying “no.”
By the way, in case you’re wondering, the pics I’ve been posting are of the two of us. Mark is wearing a black jacket and bright green ski pants, and I’m wearing a hot pink jacket and black ski pants.
ANATOMY OF A POWDER DAY….WEIRD FACTS AND DISCOVERIES
1. In our rush to get on the mountain asap this morning, I discovered that I didn’t even need the coffee to go with my Power Bar for breakfast. Powder Day = Grab A Damn Power Bar and Get Your Ass Out On The Mountain Day. It’s funny, ’cause at home, I have to eat a substantial and healthy breakfast within 5 minutes of waking up or I become a complete terror. Ask Mark. He’ll verify.
2. Pizza is a skiing super-food, apparently. One slice of pizza @ 11:00 am and I was ready to head back out. I eat really healthy at home, and have categorized pizza as a junk food. I must reconsider this.
3. After a hard day of skiing, sweating, and getting snowed on…after all of that…when I took my helmet off, I couldn’t help but notice that, somehow, my hair still looked beautiful. Just sayin’.
4. It’s 6:45 pm here, and I have yet to eat a fruit or vegetable.
Thursday will be our last full ski day here, and we head home on Friday. Will be sad to leave. Maybe we will get snowed in for another day or two!
