Okay, so today was-posibly-the best powder day of the season.  I met up with KK2 and ripped up the Dreams at the Canyons.  Waist deep powdahd sugar skiing.  I have never had fresh turns–deep enough to cover the moguls-down the gut at dreamscape like that.   WOW!  It is great to live in Park City!!!  Tonight maybe I will hike the gas line–Awesome.

att00021Several winters ago I did the pond skim.  And I made it accross and won a snowboard.  I thought ‘that was easy and very rewarding”.  So I tried it again.  I was up for biggest splash/crash.  Well, let’s just say that 1 more year of dunking myself in the EXTREEMLY fridged water was enough for me to hang up my water wings and decide that it is more fun and warmer on the sidelines.  Two winters ago my sister, brother and brother-in-law decided to visit at this time of year and they were able to see 1st hand some of the crazy/fun we have up here in the mountains.  Last year Dave and I just dressed up in some old 80’s onepieces, grabbed some PBR and hit the slopes.  We are planning to attend this year, but may not get out until later in the day.  The concert in the village is usually a good time too.

Saturday, March 28, 2009

Our annual Pond Skimming Contest will be the first event of Spring Grüv. It’s one of those traditions that has been wild from the start. The Pond Skimming Contest is The Canyons’ most popular party and is the true indicator that spring has arrived. Contestants must dress in costume (the funkier the better) as they attempt to cross a 100-foot pond on skis or a snowboard. The pond and the excitement happen at mid-mountain just outside Red Pine Lodge.

Then, come down and listen to a live concert in the Resort Village as The Wailers perform the legendary album EXODUS!

Also, check out the IZSTYLE Winter Tour and Reverb Eco Village where there will be outdoor gear demos, natural and organic food sampling and other fun stuff!

Schedule:
8:00am – 9:00am: Registration at Smokie’s
11:45am: Riders’ meeting at top of course (mandatory)
12:00pm: Contest start
12:00pm – 3:00pm: DJ Velvet spins tunes at the Pond
2:30pm: Awards Ceremony at the Pond
3:00pm: The Wailers live in the Resort Village!

aero-gardenLast Sunday a couple of friends stopped by with a gift for me (and Dave).  I was very excited.  First, because I love presents.  Second, because it is a really nice present and from some dear dear friends.  SO — the present was a new Aero Garden!!!!!   Well, if any of you know me and I would guess, you do you will know that I have very little ability to grow anything.  I am okay with cactus and things that do not need any attention, but not so good with house plants or herbs & veggies.  Well, my friend said this was fool proof.  We will see.

Here is a picture of the snow off my deck—this has been typical of this winter…..snow
