I got a late start, but ended up with about 30 days of skiing. Most of them for 6-8 hours. All of my skiing was patrolling at our little hill. For the most part the snow was good.
The highlights of the year were:
My four year old(turned 4 in January) skied on her own. Not only is it a joy to watch, but my old legs appreciate the break from snowplowing with her between my legs.
My 6 year old twins skied the steepest hill in Ohio. Seeing their excitment tops knee deep powder days, IMO.
My 12 year old is actually skiing very well. My 11 and 9 year old enjoyed the season.
I received many compliments on my bump skiing. I am not what I was 30 years ago, but I am getting to the point that I am happy with my skiing.
My wife got out about 10 times. Much more than previous years. No nursing babies or pregnancies.
Only one minor injury, my wife got a nice bruise on her hip
The only downside is that I fear that we may not be skiing next year. I am really worried about where the economy and country are heading.
