Anyone who knows just a little about me knows that I love snow. I am a skier – it’s a birth right, given that I was born in the spectacular state of Colorado. My mamacita taught Dustin and I how to ski at an early age. She used to take us to the ski resort with her when we were still living in Denver and she worked at Coors.
I can remember sitting in the living room in my long john’s, Mom in the kitchen making her health shake, and Dustin be-bopping around in his ski outfit as we prepared to head up into the mountains. (Mom says I didn’t always want to go, but she must’ve been thinking of the wrong daughter, ha!!)
You’d think that growing up with all that snow and skiing I’d be good at it, right? Well, I am… now. But when I was in college in Washington I went a few times with some friends I was a pretty sucky skier. Kaylee and I took a trip in 2004 – still sucky. But something clicked when Maurice and I spent the 2005-2006 season skiing. Not sure what changed but now I love tackling the blacks as much as the blues, and we have quite a fun time skiing together!
Anyway, we now live in the 2nd shittiest place in the U.S. (Houston – Louisiana is the 1st shittiest place) and don’t get to see much snow, let alone do any skiing. We’re working on changing that and in the meantime, we get our snow fix by traveling to the mountains as much as we can and by ogling the pictures we see online.
Yesterday gave us a good boost – it was the first major snow of late 2011 in Colorado and boy did they get it!!! Here are my favorites from the various posts I saw online yesterday. Enjoy!!
