I went skiing this weekend. It was the first time for me in more than a decade.
Boyne Highlands in Harbor Springs, Michigan was the destination of choice. It’s a great place with plenty of options for skiers of all skill levels. Check it out sometime.
The only other time for me was in Vermont so I didn’t know what to expect. As it turns out, you can do some good skiing in places other than there or Colorado. Northern Michigan is a great place for skiing.
I forgot how much fun this sport is, but somehow I hadn’t forgotten how to do it. I figured it was going to be a disaster but after a day filled with making run after run down the slopes, my body (and my ego) remained intact. Didn’t even fall down once!
It felt really good to be back on skis. I got a nice workout and had a lot of fun in the process.
It’s so much fun carving your way through the snow as you make your way down to the bottom…just the right combination of peaceful and exhilarating. Love it.
Somehow, 14 years passed between my only other time on the slopes and this time. I’m going to make every effort to make sure that doesn’t happen again.
