I am suffering from a tad bit of ski blogger writer’s block because I am conflicted by my feelings. I am so excited by the start of winter 2008 – 2009. The ground is covered with snow and the mountains are in great shape (yahoo!!). However, some of my co-workers at Yankee are without power after more than a week. Every time my mind starts wandering to making fresh tracks, I think of them, knowing that their every task is about 100 times more complicated than what it is for me: Flushing a toilet, keeping warm, cooking some food.
So, I will take a little time off before I talk gleefully about the start of this winter…In the meantime, read about the adventure I had last year in Maine. And, I’ll check back in after my upcoming winter odyssey. It won’t be 17 mountains in 3 1/2 days, but it should be another fantastic adventure.
