I skied on opening day, Friday, and it was amazing. So, so amazing. (That's not me above. It's some random that I creeped because I adore the colour of that jacket. Don't judge me!) I've been skiing since I was a kid, but not religiously. Over my lifetime I've probably only been on a hill 20 times. And, most of those times came with huge gaps in between – literally years.
When Ian and I moved to Jasper, he was convinced we would ski the winter away, but we only made it up to the mountain three times last season. This year, though, that's all going to change... because we got seasons passes. SEASONS PASSES!!
My goal is to at least get on the hill twice a week for the entire season. That will work out to more than 30 mountain visits!! 3-0. That's a lot of ski time. I mean, not compared to the diehards. (I met a guy who skied 153 days last season. Mind you, he was retired.) But, for me, a full-time working lady with a blog and now a bit of a teeny-little crafting business, 30+ times seems like the perfect amount. It's enough that I feel my pass is worth it and it also gives me time to do all of the other things I love to do and need to do.
Eeeeeee... bring on winter! Bring on snow! Bring on mountain visits and hot chocolate! I want it all and I want it RIGHT NOW.
What are you guys excited for this winter season? Do you ski or board?
