Back to Black

Top GunI 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. IMG_0392

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!

P.S.  That is not a low-lying cloud.  That is the valley inversion. YUCK. IMG_0396 copySo glad I got fresh air in my lungs, Vitamin D in my body and natural Prozac for the soul!
