The First Ski Day of the Season

  • By

My favorite day each year, is the day I see the first snowflakes of the season.  At first there are just a few, then a few more, then enough to dust the ground.  I go outside, the air just smells different.  I look up and to try to trace a flake as it falls to earth. 

It is at that moment I realize ski season is coming.  In my garage, I take out my gear and do a once over.  I see that scratch on my Volkls from late last season, when I was a little too ambitious in the glades.  I put on my boots.  And then remember how great it feels to take them off at the end of a long day on the slopes, while standing in the parking lot, on one foot, trying not to put my bare foot on the icy ground. 

Each year I try to sneak up to the mountain at least once on a weekday.  There is truly nothing like starting the day after a huge storm, before the groomers, and the crowds, swishing down and through sparkling, pillowy snow. Undisturbed snow.  The kind of snow that buffers any falls, that makes each move a little more forgiving, that quiets the mountains.  And for a moment, skiing down the mountain, after the storm, you can feel truly at peace, and the only thing on your mind, is the slope beneath you.
