I'm home! Got to the house about 2 am from Pitt. airport.
It was just too Butt-cold to try to ski at Breck yesterday before we went to the airport. With minus 30 windchills, I preferred to make it home for Christmas with all of my digits/extremities still attached!
: Still got 3 good days in though.
Sunday was surprising and exciting in that my legs still remembered a few things after 20+ years. Monday involved some hard work, frustration, and a fair amount of swearing at myself and the mountain, 'cause I was pushing/working too hard to get it "right" instead of letting it happen. Knees were screaming by early afternoon from trying to force everything. Wednesday was the break-out day - felt good - was "feeling it"-wasn't working so hard - had a great time - yeah, even laughed thru the double-release and something Louie called a "Polish Donut?"
My "official" lesson was pretty much just reinforcment of what I had already picked up, so no massive breakthru's there. I let Louie do some low-key "teaching", and I actually grasped more this way - AND we are still speaking! LOL!
It was just FABULOUS - I'm sorry I missed you guys ---- I apparently stink at phone tag.
Gotta go hit the grocery store now this morning to restock before the relatives get here....... Merry Christmas!!!!
