We had fun yesterday skiing at Terry Peak. Beautiful weather, good company, good snow, no lines at the lifts, and no broken bones all played a part in the success of the day. Very nice motel rooms were only $39 per room with the winter rate. We left Deadwood this morning in an unseasonal heavy December rain, which was rapidly turning to snow, and we came on home today.

Coooooool pictures! :lol:

Good to see you wearin' your hat. Now thats a real cowboy skier!

When we used to go up we'd always wear our leggin's and hats. Aftet the first few times, people quit staring and laughing at us. Might have been cuz we was gettin' to be better skiers and quit fallin' down so many times and rolling up into big snowballs! :shock:

The last time I went it was more work than fun so I quit going. Now, I just watch, but if only I'd get a snowboard for Christmas.......... :wink:

The last time I went skiing was four years ago. The snow that day was terrible; it was icy and a lot of bare dirt was showing; also my skies were too long. I bit the dust and smashed a couple times real hard that day, and have been about half gunshy ever since. Yesterday I went back to short skies--140mm--and everything went well. I made just as many trips down the mountain as anybody, and never wiped out once.

Rigormortis has kind of set in tonight, however. :( :wink:
