...boy did I get lucky, 6 inches a night...
Besides all the fun I had skiing with my kids, my wife, my friends and the friends of my friends; the highlight of a season without a lot of powder days was a deep powder day. I had put my kids in a lesson for the day which left me all by my lonesome. But skiing is a wonderful way to make new friends; as I rode up the 9990 chair at The Canyons I met Dan - a pilot for American Airlines - and we shared many a run in the fresh snow.
After several runs we decided to start hiking up the ridge for a few more vertical and a few less tracks. If the last run we took together had been my last run on skis I would be a happy man. It was long and moderately steep. Uninterupted, but for a single pine tree. And, if I do say so myself, I skied it well.
And the best news of all? It wasn't my last run on skis. I'm going again tomorrow. And again Sunday.
