I missed three weeks of amazing snow, but today, I was up there again! I wasn’t quite sure if I was ready for Sundance Ladies Day , so I went up to try my knee and meet the Ladies after Ladies Day for a few runs.
The knee happily held with the brace on, so I decided to try and find the ladies. Sundance is on a mountain that was named after a native American princess called Timpanogos. Today, the Princess helped me find my fellow Snow Sisters. I was led by her spirit right to their location on the mountain (if you have ever searched for someone at a ski resort, you know it is almost impossible to find them while they are skiing).
When I found them, the ladies excitedly told me that they had done 2 black diamonds. I was so impressed. Then Lisa, our instructor, looked at me and said, “Now it’s your turn. We are going again and you are coming.” So I went. Who can deny Princess Timpanogos or Instructor Lisa.
AND . . . it was amazing! It was actually easier than I had imagined. I had Black Diamonds hyped in my head as one of the runs in a Warren Miller movie. Don’t know what a Warren Miller movie is? Check this out. As a woman, it is way easier to ski with other ladies. It was so clear to me today that I tried the run because my friends were with me (sorry hubby).
The black run I skied is called Top Gun. I could hear the Top Gun music in my head. So glad no one had to say “Speak to me Goose.”
I made it! And now I am Back in Black!
