    Skied the neighborhood playground today for day 37.

    Skiing down was fun! Walking up was not.

    Day 41 was 1 run at June with @Stephen, @Philpug, and @Tricia. Wind had the upper mountain closed and the lower lifts were too slow to do it again. June looks like a really fun place though.

    While all of June was not open, we could see the possibilities of this gem of a place.

    Having more fun than you
    Great afternoon with @Tori and @Stephen at NS. Had the deepest run I've ever had in Tahoe. First time I actually needed a snorkel instead of just joking about it. Oh what this place would be with just a little more pitch...

    I don't work on Fridays & take the weekends off...

    As of President's day weekend (didn't ski Monday): 25 :daffy:

    Not nearly as many as some of you, but still pretty good! I haven't managed a week trip anywhere, but I was offered to stay in Breckenridge for the full week with my friends that have a condo there.

    As of Sunday 2/17: Fifteen days! Mostly Keystone and A-Basin with a couple days at Breck and Beaver Creek sprinkled in.

    Feeling pretty good about that for my first season in CO so far. Hope everyone's having a great season!

    Fellow weekend warrior & new to CO here too! You should definitely try Loveland!

    And definitely Copper! Probably my all around favorite.

    I've been meaning to give it a shot this season. Just have to find the time! What does everyone do to get so many ski days in??

    43 at Rose with @AKMINK and 44 at Rose with @Philpug. The snow is amazing. Cold temps and more snow to come.

    I'm a consultant and I work by billable hours. I just make sure not to take any client calls on Friday or not do any billable work. Being a partial owner of the firm I get to set my own rules a bit. My dancing side of my career too I don't practice on weekends, and my competition calendar is very light in winters. My dance partner is currently injured as well so I have about 6 more days than I currently should have.

    That's great that you get to ski so often! Unfortunately the busy season for my firm (public accounting) coincides pretty much directly with ski season, so I get out whenever I can (mostly Sundays). Consulting sounds like a good way to go!
