Saying Goodbye to Ski Season

Today has been bittersweet.  I met my friends at the Killington Base Lodge a little before 9AM to catch one of the first Gondola's up to the top.  The sun was shining and the skies were blue.  It was a perfect spring ski day, and my last for the season.  Killington has plenty of snow, even though the official close is next Sunday, May 1st, I won't be back until summer.

We started out on firm groomed trails, but as the day warmed up we headed over to the soft moguls.  I think I took at least 5 last runs, telling myself just one more until about 2 PM. 

By that time I was starved, and I finally headed in.  A quick stop at the Killington Base Lodge deck to smooze, before heading to the Sunup Bakery to pick up a sandwich for lunch on my way home.

Maybe if tomorrow is nice, just one more day....

I thank you God for most this amazing day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes. EE Cummings (via Diana)
