New Year’s Eve Ice and Powder

New Year’s Eve Ice and Powder

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!

Cross Country Skiing Millcreek Canyon

Cross Country Skiing Millcreek Canyon

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.

Lady Bug Horror

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.
