I haven't been around the shop a whole lot the last couple of weeks. I get a pile of paternity leave to use how I want. I took 3 weeks when he came, then Sarah had him while I worked until her leave finished, now I'm working 3 days a week until summer when she is off.
I've looked at the itinerary, I'm seeing what I can squeeze in. I've thought of the mt rose day, unfortunately the squaw and alpine days are the two days that week that I work. I'm also interested in the meet and greet at sky tavern. If nothing else, if somehow a tour is nice on the mt rose day I'd stop in at the bar and have a drink. Or ride lifts for the afternoon. 'Course Rose is a little bit of a PITA when it comes to having dogs in the car. I can appreciate that at a certain level, but I haven't skied there much since they implemented and enforced that rule. I used to love to spend a few hours/laps in the morning down the road and stop in for post ski tour lift riding. But Maddie was in the car and they started to be touchy about that. It used to be I'd wear her out ridin' pow in the backcountry and then hit up Rose for lunch and fast groomer laps. She was always stoked to take a nap in the back of the truck. If I do a tour that day, I'll have Dakota and Ez.
We took a drive with the dogs yesterday to look at what conditions are and there is plenty of snow for some lift riding. I think people coming in will have a lot of fun. We'll see about that rose day or at least a quick drive up the hill to sky tavern. That's just a little up the road from me.
Splitter, new daddy Bear!
We've missed you. Hope you can join us for some of the festivities!
Stopped by the store a few times but seem to be missing you.
