I cannot tell you how excited my hubby was this morning to look out of our condo window and see huge snow flakes flying all around and at least 4 inches of new snow. It was beautiful!
The snow was awesome but I sure was glad to see it come to an end as we made our way up the mountain today. I love the fresh powder but am not really a fan of riding with the snow blowing in my face.
When snowboarding with the boys there is normally a time when we get stuck and it just really sucks. That definitely happened today. We were attempting to get to a part of the mountain called 7th Heaven. In our efforts to get there we went half way down a little ledge and then decided it was not the best route. So, that means Lew and I pulled ourselves out of a few feet of snow up to a cat track (flat run) and walk through fresh snow back to the main run. It was terrible but beautiful all at the same time.
We thought it might be a good idea to push Lew to help make a path for us to follow.
FAIL! but we did make it!
After climbing up the ledge and numerous cat tracks my legs were on fire and my toes were numb from being so cold! Luckily we had a relaxing lunch break and then we got back on the mountain. Lew and I did some really cool runs after lunch and I really pushed myself. I was super exhausted and was falling more than normal but I had a great time.
Today was tough! But it was also awesome. It was fun to get to see more of the mountain and I had a great time with Lew. I am definitely feeling it right now and don’t think I was this sore when I got home from Nashville after running the half-marathon!
I am not sure what my tomorrow will hold. I am waiting to see how my so very sore body right now feels in the morning. I will also have a recap of our Japanese dinner at Teppan Village we enjoyed tonight. For now, I am going to sleep!
