Slope Stories

2021 was, well 2021. Rough year. I’ll write more about that another time. Bottom line is that it left me pretty exhausted so Chris and I made conscious choices to slow down for at least a few months. The energy is starting to come back thanks to a concentration on a healthy diet, sleep and […]

Yesterday, I hit the slopes again, and it was a bit scary after my fall on Tuesday. I know. I’m a wuss. People take much harder hits and get back up, but this one got me a bit. I felt like a beginner boarder again. As far as the season goes, I feel I was […]
