My skiing days are done.
Sunday I went up to the slopes. The temperature was in the 50s, but despite that the snow conditions weren't horrible. Oh, they weren't optimal, but it was pretty darned good skiing for being in the 50s.
From my house to the ski slope is 80 minutes, and another 40 min from there to Reno, so that's where I stayed Sunday night. Slept in Monday, then hit the slopes on my way home.
I can't do what I used to be able to do--my once-injured knee lets me know it's not happy. Skiing is just not as enjoyable an experience as it once was so I'm packing it in. Next fall I'll sell the skis, boots, and poles.
I need a new winter activity. I'm considering snowshoeing. Any other ideas?
