This weekend was great (did you expect different?). Took snowboarding lessons on Saturday and picked it back up surprisingly quick. Not to say that I'm good, I've got a LONG way to go. We were practicing 180's and I spent most of the time on my butt (which hurt the next day for some reason). That night we went out in Vail and had some drinks with friends. I found out that my roommate Chris is a lush...
After sleeping in Sunday morning, I went out for a few hours of skiing. The weather was absolutely perfect this weekend. Clear skies called all day long. Got home and spent about an hour relaxing in the hot tub. I never knew how much it could help aching muscles to sit in warm water. Go figure.
Today I was really getting into the swing of things at work. At lunch I went for a few runs on the slopes. The wind was blowing like crazy. I could barely see the slope to read the mountain because of the snow drifts. It was scary but it really tested my abilities (a.k.a. I fell).
We cooked some surf and turf tonight. My roommate Luke is an excellent cook. We had salmon with a courvoisier cream sauce, steak, potato slices, and steamed veggies. WOW!!! It doesn't get much better. Well, the 2-3 inches of snow we got while eating was pretty cool, too.
One thing I didn't realize about CO is that lamp posts wear turbins... weird!
