Sunday morning we woke up to an inch of crusty ice on everything at home. I assumed that the hill got ice too, but when I took my dog out for a walk I was surprised. Up on the mountain less than a mile away from my house boot top powder covered everything. It was an unexpected treat. I have mostly been skiing lately and this was actually my first time on a snowboard since going down Left Gully last spring, so my first too turns were a little tentative but then I got my legs back.
