December 2006 Archives

December 25, 2006

Ski season!

One thing that makes Seattle's dreary, rainy winters a little more bearable is that it snows in the nearby mountains, which means there are good ski resorts nearby! After a season and a half of skiing (and two snowboarding attempts) on rentals, I decided to shell out the money and actually buy a pair. I got a nice deal on a pair of new skis from last year's line. They're women's skis (K2 Sweet Luv), but all that means to me is that there are flowers on them. Not pink flowers, at least.

I most often ski at Steven's Pass, about an hour and a half away, but I've also been to Mount Baker and Crystal Mountain. Normally, I go with some of my co-workers in December up to Whistler Blackcomb, but the weekends didn't work out right this year, so we're hoping for a January or February trip. It should be more enjoyable, now that I'm finally good enough to ski intermediate terrain. :)
