Winter is back with a vengence! 20" of snow has fallen on Vail Mountain in the last 48 hours. It is amazing how quickly conditions can change from spring skiing to champagne powder. As I cleared several inches of fluff off of my car this morning, I knew conditions on Vail Mountain today would be awesome! Unfortunately, I'm still nursing a broken ankle back to health so I can't experience the powder first hand. I considered it, believe me, after all a ski boot is stiff and supportive, right? Maybe not. My common sense has gotten the better of me, so I am sitting at my desk instead. Not nearly as much fun.
