Took the day off Friday to go to Snowbird with my brother, who was getting married on Saturday. Not much of a day to be out, with strong winds in the morning and dust on crust conditions. Still, any skiing is better than not skiing.
The real fun, though, was in the afternoon, when my son came up to ski with me. We spent all afternoon on Chickadee (the very easy beginner lift at Snowbird). For the last run of the day, I convinced him to go over to the Wilbere lift and take a run down Big Emma, still a "green" run, but more difficult than Chickadee. Difficult enough that he actually had to make turns instead of just doing figure 11's top to bottom.
We had so much fun that on Saturday after the wedding, we went up to Alta for free after three on Sunnyside. He asked me if he needed to make turns at Alta. When I told him that he did at least some of the time, he responded "I want to go to Snowbird instead."
He's asked me no fewer than five times today when we can go back. I think we'll both be sad when the snow finally all melts.
