Today, I was a little slow to get going, for some reason I didn't sleep well last night. We decided to go skiing, but opted to go for the half-day, which starts at 12:30. We headed out the door about 11:30. Tony put the fixin's for a roast on to cook in the crock pot.
We drove to Durango Mountain Resort, (about 18 miles north of us,) got our lift tickets, and headed up the 6-pack lift. We had a great day skiing, and really enjoyed having most of the areas we wanted to ski, all to ourselves! The "backside" is mostly blues and blacks, so they are less crowded... and today there were very few people on them. We enjoyed skiing down Legends, Sally's Run, and Vincents, as well as Mercy, Salvation, The Bank, and Demon. According to the Ski Tracker app, we skied more than 8 miles today, with a Max speed of 31mph.
Something else that helped our skiing was the fact that we went skiing over Thanksgiving, (without the trailer, so that's why no blog entries). Muscle memory does help!

When we came home, we could smell the roast cooking, from outside the coach! Opening the door, it smelled even more wonderful! We put the ski stuff away, and enjoyed a great meal. After dinner we relaxed and surfed and took it easy. I was having a little bit of a headache, so I headed off to bed early.
Tony and the kitties joined me later. What a fun, exhausting day!
