Third Day at Mount Snow

I woke up around 7:00 am and threw bacons in the oven for breakfast. I made myself a ham, bacons, eggs, and cheese sandwich. I went over to the resort around 8:30 am. Around 8:50 am, I stood in line with a handful of senior skiers. I was the only early snowboarder.

I determined to learn short turns and knee steerings on snowboard. I hit one green and one blue terrain. I headed back around 10:00 am to pick up everyone. We didn’t leave the condo until 11:00 am. When we arrived, Vương wanted to take the bubble lift so I skied with him on Long John. Pizzing all the way down with him still burned my legs.

We got back down at noon. We took a break and it started to rain. Đạo, Đán, Xuân, and I went back on the lift to ski in the rain. With heavy fog and light rain, I suggested we take it easy on the green terrain. It was quite an experience skiing in the rain.

Around 2:00 pm, my wife took the younger boys home to go swimming. I went back up with the older boys, but they wanted to hit the blue terrains. I stuck with Long John to learn short turns and knee steerings on snowboard and I made some progress. I longer pivoted my back foot; therefore, my ride was much smoother. I also were able to steer with my knees. I practiced three runs on Long John. At 3:45 pm, I decided to hit one more time before the lift closed. When I got on the lift, it started to rain. I was the only one left on the green terrain. I snowboarded in the rain and it was quite an experience. Today was a great day.
