First time on the slopes in 2 years. Forgot how much fun it is, and how beautiful it is up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Other skiers can go to Little Cottonwood Canyon all they want; just leave Solitude to me … because the fact is that I much preferring spending my time skiing than standing in a lift line.

I also forgot how much my thighs burn when trying to turn, and how much my feet get squished by my boots … but it’s too be expected after this long away. All I know for sure is that I didn’t forget how to turn, and I’m looking forward to reacquainting my thighs and feet to the process more this season.
