Heading off to the Arid-Zone tomorrow, so I’m just finishing up my packing …
Good day today … slept in after Mama T’s holiday shindig in Heber yesterday, after sleeping away a good chunk of the day Saturday recovering from the Holidayna Maritini event in the Sugarhood.
Headed up to Solitude this morning about 10:30, and pulled into the lot shortly after 11:00; I saw on Facebook this morning that Sly and This One Girl were gonna be up as well, so I met up with the two of them, and we tooled all over the resort.
I did have to take a foot break for a little while after the first 2-3 runs; my right boot is still giving me some problems, so when I get back from Fountain Hills, I think I’ll need to make a run back to the Sport Loft to have Earl and/or Jeremy stretch out my right boot a bit like they did with the left. Here it is, several hours later, and my right pinkie toe is still a little tingly.
Even though Solitude’s website indicated that Honeycomb Canyon would be open today, the main gate at the top of the Summit lift was closed due to avalanche danger … perhaps some of the gates in the trees along the top of Eagle Ridge were open, and I seem to recall that the Honeycomb lift was running, but we couldn’t get in from the top.
Skied until a little after 3:00 pm, when my legs decided they were worked enough, and the light became so flat I couldn’t any variation in the snow at all to give me a hint about what was coming up next.
The flight tomorrow is going to be interesting, as stiff as I think I’m going to be. My flight is at noon, so I should hit the airport about 10:15-10:30 … so off to bed.
