Happy New Year!

There were some great New Year's festivities last night put on by the New Prince Hotel. I got to have a 10 minute snow cat ride, which was really awesome. I think I have found my retirement job. Where do you sign up for snow cat school?

I also signed up to ski the torch parade. Instead of flares, we used real torches with real fire on the end. Pretty cool. "Please hold them in your RIGHT hand and keep them away from the other skiers." Always good advice.

The midnight fireworks show lasted at least 25 minutes, and featured some stuff I have never seen before. Neither had anyone else to judge by the reaction.

Ski report? Well, no new snow. Temps hovering around 0 C. Not too windy. I'd be up skiing if I wasn't working.

Think Snow.
