Tomorrow will be my first ski outing of the season.  This winter has been so cold that I have had little interest in skiing.  Temperatures in the single digit, not to mention negative numbers, does not make for a fun ski day!  This weekend is expected to be a toasty 25 degrees, and with the 10" of new snow that fell on Wednesday I am all set to hit the slopes with my DS. 

Thanks for stopping by and...
