Negative 10 degrees. Eyelashes coated with icicles. Prime conditions for skiing and snowboarding, right? Well, only if you are as bundled up and crazy as we and the many others at the resort that night were. On New Year’s Eve, Colton and I teamed up once again with our partners-in-adventure Bree and Ben to a night at Powder Mountain Resort near Eden, Utah. Our adventure packet that night included skiing, snowboarding, dinner, and glow sticks!
We have achieved our goal from last week: Cross Country skiing up Mill Creek Canyon! And when I say “up” Mill Creek Canyon, I mean UP. You can never quite realize how steep something is until you can start going backward at any moment. That was a bit of a side note, but you will be used to that by the end of this post. I promise. Anyways, let me start from the beginning.
Colton and I were excited to go snowshoeing when his sister Bree brought it up. So we rented shoes, packed up our cameras, and headed out, but it wasn’t what we expected at all.
One day I got on the TRAX after school. I absolutely hate people who put their feet or stuff on the seats next to them when there are clearly not enough seats for everyone to sit down in the first place. On this particular day there were two girls who had their backpacks on the seats next to them. So, of course I walked right up to one and asked to sit next to her. She moved her stuff, and I sat down, feeling very satisfied.
I started school at the University of Utah this past fall, and also started riding the Front Runner and TRAX for the first time ever. There are some… interesting people… to say the least.
