Mammoth Day 1

Up early, we were on the chairlift before 8:30 a.m. It snowed lightly all morning. The light was very flat making it very difficult to see bumps and moguls. We took a quick break at 10:00 a.m. and then had lunch around noon.

This was the first time I have skied in two years. The rest of the group skis a lot; for example, Larkin has already skied more than a dozen times this year. I kept up with the group pretty well and did not embarrass myself too badly.

After lunch it started to snow harder. At the top of a couple of the chairlifts, it was very difficult to see. Additionally, there was a lot of wet, heavy snow on the ground. Overall, the conditions were not ideal. Three of us (Larkin, Larry and I) skied until about 2:30 p.m. and then headed back to the condo.

For dinner, we got take-out pizza and watched the Heat rout the Kings on ESPN. This is not a late night group; everyone crashed early. I am sore. I used some muscles today that I have not used in a while...
