“Bring your fatties tomorrow, it’s going to be huge!
7″ since 7am…inch an hour since noon and still going strong!”
~Monarch Mountain Resort Monday afternoon Facebook update
January was dry. It is not a month known for big snows in the Colorado Rockies, but I’m a bit paranoid after last season when winter essentially never happened. It’s not something I can control, of course, I can only hope my snow dances and prayers to Ullr influence Mama Nature.
You can bet a big grin emerged when I saw the 12″ snow report early Tuesday morning.
And after Monarch’s report on Facebook (see above) Monday afternoon I was already prepared to go skiing first thing on Tuesday – my hubby & I were about fifth chair, and got freshies (aka fresh powder turns) on Tele Alley – to start. It was a phenomenal day of skiing, and looking back on my turns always makes me smile!
I can’t control what mother nature has in store for the rest of the winter, but I’ll take these moments, this experience!
