    Thanks for showing me your favorite areas of the mountain @Bruuuce. The snow was tricky in spots but a whole heck of a lot of fun. Here's a few pictures (finally).

    A good omen found in the Men's room. My instagram handle is "SendItWithMe". Note that I didn't pen this, only found it.

    Ha, saw a porcupine at Snowbird today. Never saw one in person before so it must be porcupine season. Looks like fun conditions.

    I am hearing the mountain is skiing very well. With the warm temps this week, give it some time to soften up but I was told that near the top is holding up extremely well.

    We would love to meet up ... especially if you would go ski some trees with Bob. I don't like trees, but he does and is wise enough not to go alone! He can ski pretty much anything. Also, we will buy lunch!

    We had a great day skiing with @Bruuuce and Mrs. Bruuuce! Thanks again for the hospitality. Steamboat is amazing! Bob is rarely in the pictures because it's all about me ... JK - he's the photographer.

    Here's an interesting film on Jim Temple, the founder of the ski resort.

    We have seen "Moose in area" signs all over Steamboat both on the mountain and off. This morning we were graced by a visit from Mrs. Bullwinkle and her little, right outside our cabin. I have always wanted to see a moose. Later, I took a wrong turn at the ski mountain and ended up on a slow and slightly sticky cat track. As I passed the "moose in area" sign, I wondered ... hmmm, will I be able to crawl away if needed!

    Snow holding up well yet this week ... thoughts on the weekend/next week should a colleague of mine carry through with an offer of a road trip?

    Nuking in the Boat! Last powder day of the year tomorrow. Hoping for a 6-12 tonight for some creamy goodness in the morning. What a great year here!
