I am just simply exhausted. When the resort closes down at the end of the season, those of us who work and live off of the winter tourist trade suddenly find ourselves with an enormous amount of free time. As the seasonal workers return to their normal lives, the residents reclaim our town and our friendships. All winter long, we socialize in our winter circles: restaurant staff, instructors, coaches, etc... But as these friends evaporate, we turn back to each other.
May is local reunion season. Last night I got to share a riverside bonfire with good friends that I haven't had the chance to have drinks with since the winter began. There are so many people that I love, but not as much as skiing ;) which is okay with them, because they feel the same way. We will see each other when the snow melts.
But all these parties...and then new sports becoming available as old ones evaporate. There is just so much to do - like tomorrow. Should I paddle, ski, hike, run, pedal, golf, disc golf...or just do nothing and hope that this three day hangover finally subsides?
The view from the Tram Tower at the top of Vertigo. We had to hike up and over from the Jet Triple, but the snow was fantastic!! And I realized that I had NEVER been to Jay where you could see because we only drive up for a snowstorm :) Gorgeous!!
See you in the Woods,
