A few simple thoughts from my first day this season:

I am awed and inspired by the mountains.

The mountains provide a healing environment like no other.

I feel privileged and honored to be able to stroke a mountain on skis.

I am humbled by how much I have to learn about skiing.

I am thrilled by what I can do and the terrain I can explore on skis.

Technique is not something to focus on too much while skiing.

It is a fun part of skiing to feel your technique, play with variations, and seek improvement.

Solitude Resort is amazing in terms of snow preservation even when it hasn't snowed for a couple weeks.

There's nothing like going to bed watching a heavy snow fall.

I have made some great friends through skiing.

It was truly a great day for giving thanks.
