    One "run" and we called it a day. Looks like it's going to take some time for my wife to get her confidence back after breaking her ankle last Thanksgiving.

    But snow was nice:

    sorry to hear that about vee. Was it a physical problem or what is more the mental aspect of getting hurt again for her? anyway, hope she sticks to it and you guys get back out there soon.

    That sucks, Andy. At least Vee has the first day behind her. Hopefully it will only get easier for her.
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Actually it was here second day,first was Killington on 11/2, and yes this was mental. We hit Minya (I think) and she just froze when she saw the huge whales. While waiting for her to work her way down, a snowboarder fell and crashed into me broke the tip of my pole off. I decided to stick to easier terrain, so we went to the B lift, for some reason there was a line and it was closed. We waited about 10 minutes, before I decided that between everything, we would just be better off calling it a day. Season is young, we'll be back !

    and why would you even think to bring her down a closed trail?
    or was it more about what Andy wanted to do instead of doing the right thing for V
    sorry, but you should know better, she's coming off a severe injury and needs to take things at 'her' pace ... way to help psych her out

    Eski, not for nothing, but try thinking before posting. Still not familiar with all trails at Hunter, notice I said "Minya (I think)" trail was not closed, so if not Minya it may have been Hellgate. . The plan was to hit Belt, but either it was still closed first thing in the morning or we missed the turn. By the time we wound up where we did, it was too late to turn back. I guess shit like that don't happen to experts such as yourself. "more about what Andy wanted" I am truly offended by that remark, there is nothing more important to me than my wife. And here I thought you were cool. Guess that's my second mistake in two days

    Ha, I'm not an expert by any means and never claimed to be cool either, so your perceptions are already suspect ... I'm also not trying to pick on you, feel as offended as you want, but there's a time when common sense should be the priority, I'm just pointing out the obvious

    perhaps you had no business taking the quad to the top in the first place ... you know that mountain well enough to know where the Belt is, there's no 'missing it' and there is no 'easy' way down ... you also know the Belt is not beginner terrain ... just like rehab, she's got to take baby steps ... nothing tougher than trying to remove the fear from someone, worse yet is to be the one responsible for instilling it ... carry on
