I decided to get an early jump on ski season this year. No big trips to any resorts. I just went to Wachusett, to shake off the rust of not skiing for eight months.
Every time I restart the sport, I’m surprised. I warmed up on a trail on Saturday that two years ago, I was going doing constantly turning and afraid I was going to fall. This time, no. I just went down easy.
It was the best day for skiing. The mountain was covered in granular machine made snow,but it was worth the ride. I still love the sound of the snow under the skis and it was a good way to get the season going. Just quietly and to get myself in shape again.
Yesterday Wachusett had the guns on to start the season. I guess I was getting myself ready and they were too. Not to mention the whole thing produced some pretty great images:
