We are in the throes of an actual winter storm in Southwest Colorado, THANK CHRIST! Today was my son’s first day in Freestyle DEVO, and our family’s first time ever having a kid in that set up. We did the USSA membership, we did the huge-ass sign up online. What we didn’t do? Buy him a ski pass. DUH! I got a call from his coach about a half an hour into his training session today. She was nice but she was firm. “What the hell? Your son has no pass?”
Yes, well. … Rookie. I told her I was sorry. In addition to that feaux-paux, we sent him up sans helmet and with a jacket that didn’t really zip. Okay, send the four-foot golden best Mountain Diva Parent Award trophy to my PO Box in Durango.
In other news. … Kendall Mountain Ski Area in Silverton, Colo., opened today (again, THANK CHRIST!). We’ll have our White Christmas after all, and have a destination every day over Christmas break with the Ogden kids. I also discovered an option for the day after Christmas at the Ouray Ice Park. The kids climbing college.
Really, I am just happy it’s snowing. It’s the simple things in life!
