Only 3 weeks left. On Feb. 10, I’ll head to Utah to board some of the best powder in the US. A friend/client of mine invites my partner and I to his condo right on the slopes each year. I took him up a couple years ago, but popping out kids makes it difficult to make it every year. After taking a year off to help my wife with the birth of our son, Nic, I’m finally heading back.
You can never prepare enough when it comes to the proper workouts leading up to a ski trip, but I try. It has literally been just over 2 years since I strapped a board on. However, I’ve had longer stretches before. While there is fast access to over 5 resorts, I’m looking most forward to Solitude again. It’s a boarders paradise and a place that in one day, you can get almost a week’s fill. Solitude is not packed with the tourists. I think it’s more of a local favorite. Its altitude is higher than the other nearby mountains and when the snow is heavy, the pass is sometimes closed and you can’t make it up (Argh!).
This all said, I still need to get out the board and tune up, move a shit-load of work off the platter and countless things around the house. More later.
