So I decided to take a ride up to Sugar Mountain, NC this morning to get in a day of skiing. About an hour into the trip, I was doing a mental checklist of the gear I brought with me. To my great dismay, I HAD FORGOTTEN MY SKI JACKET !!! Since I had not brought any extra layers with me, I turned around and headed back home ... I will try again tomorrow.
Fortunately, this was only a day trip, but it got me thinking about other dumb ways you could ruin a ski trip ... any good stories out there? If you can't laugh at yourself, what's the point?
You decided to go to Sugar Mountain. That is a mistake that cannot be overcome.
