Thanks to an end of season purchase last season, I own my first set of skis in nearly 15 years, and I’ve gotten off to my earliest ski season start in a long, long while: 2 days before January. Yay! Now, if I only had an altimeter so I could figure out how much vert I’ve gone. I’m guessing it’s no more than 10,000. Sadly.
Edited 1/1/08: You know, I am an idiot. I had already skied 3 days by 12/27/07. Why the hell I gloated about 2 is beyond me. Granted, it was probably only about 14 hours on snow, but still, it was three different days that I schlepped myself and gear out to the hills.
