what’s a boy supposed to do?

March 7, 2011

A couple Saturdays ago Holden and I went to Snowbird to take advantage of the second 4 foot storm in a week.

Unfortunately, Holden got off the first lift, dropped into the trees, made a turn, and lost a ski. We never found it.

A couple of good samaritans came by and helped us look for a while, then the guy said “I guess you have to call the ski patrol. It’s too far down to hike, and they’ll bring you a ski you can use to get down.”

Holden and I looked at each other and smirked. “I’m not gonna let a lost ski cost me a run. Thanks. Bye.”

I got Holden out on his Mom’s skis this morning. We do like skiing a foot of fresh. I think deep powder days outnumber regular old days like ten to one this year.

    So I keep track. At least of my days. Which will not surprise you.

    Wow. My left leg is getting sore just watching that.

    Think his ski will somehow feel a connection to my lonely ski across the street on Little Superior?
