A little "Mommy-time" on the Slopes

It was just me and the snowflakes.
Did I mention the snowflakes were light and fluffy?
Did I mention I got first tracks on my favorite run on a powder day?
It's probably a good thing I was skiing by myself, because my Dad and my husband will attest... 
I don't have any friends, family, or spouses when I hit an adrenaline rush on a powder day.  


"...snowflakes were miracles of beauty; 
and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen 
and appreciated by others. 
Every crystal was a masterpiece of design; 
and no one design was ever repeated. 
When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. 
Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind."
Wilson (Willie) Bentley (1865-1931) 


  1. Some of those snowflakes are so perfect.
    I would be doing one run to your two. Looks like an epic day!

  2. Dad it was so funny, I got first tracks and then 4th tracks on the same run! I couldn't believe hardly anyone else was skiing it!!! They all went over to Chair 5 apparently.

  3. Good for you taking this 'mommy time', Amy!!!!
