keep the faith
Wrecked my car on some black ice on the way up.

Busted front windshield, and front tires, slide off into a dutch.

State Police / Fire Rescue came and were really cool.

Got a tow truck drive to K1 Lodge, went skiing with a few people there. Groomers were nice and slick. Some snow up top, sleet down below. Ripped some fast runs. Hit about 60 on SkiTracks on Ramshead snowboard park straight lined.

Met a couple older dudes and took some speed runs.

Wife met met up there to recover my car, but it's stuck up in Hartland, VT getting fixed.

Good thing for Auto Insurance.

Quite the experience. Thank God no injuries.

That's that.

Is your wife the same woman that you took skiing a few years ago and abandoned on the slope for her to fend for herself to get down?

No rain?????? Just snow and sleet??????

That's not what was reported at Kzone.

Glad you're okay, but I'm sure you see why it was best to stay home.

Right where I want to be
Glad you're okay but everyone tried to talk you out of going. Well maybe we didn't but we did say it was going to suck and not be a powder day.

I knew there'd be a report and that it would include Tuna Speed. Another victory for the man. Was seriously hoping for an off trailer.

But what about the epic pow? What of the glorious day that they would chronicle in the annals of ski history that we were all missing out on?

you owe me $10. if you don't pay, you are a dishonorable man, and your "God" will smite you.

your wife is a saint. if I were her I'd be pissed at you for being so foolish and driving into an ice storm, and I'd tell you to take a car service to Lebanon and fly home, or take a train or bus from Rutland, as you deserved.

I totaled my car driving in a SNOW storm to jay peak from sugarloaf. Moose ran into the road. Flipped my crv. Moose walked away like nothing happened. I was fine, a little bruised. Seatbelts people. I ended up flying home from Lebanon. Our difference is that I missed an actual powder day, not some mixed precip rain crap
