Greetings from Vail CO

Weather: sunny and clear. AM temps in 30's-40's. Late afternoon temps in high 50's and 60's.
Conditions: Spring skiing. No new snow for at least a week since before we got here. Softens up late morning up at the top of the mountain, bottom of the mountain is like skiing in mashed potatoes. Back in the back bowls must watch out for rocks.
The Knees: Getting old is He** on the knees. skiing the groomed runs, don't think my knees have any moguls left in them.

Marji, my blown ACL wishes your ACLs safe, sunny Spring skiing. Treat your tired knees to a visit to the lodge - the nice tall options for therapy there are endless!

Why worry about your knees when Vail brings a smile like that to your face?! Enjoy.

What fun! We just had our last ski day a few weeks enjoy! Enjoy the spring skiing.

Now that's where snow belongs! On slopes, not on city streets ;-)

Why aren't you sitting on the overstuffed chair in front of a roaring fire, knitting on Elizabeth?

Becky said...

Sounds lovely, as long as you are careful to avoid the pitfalls. A good way to say goodbye to winter for a while, too.

Brigitte said...

Oh, it all looks so wonderful! Glad you're having a great time.
