After some mild weather and melting, conditions were remarkably good and fast. Same ski as last week, very nice skiing. I am developing my signature peameal bacon and brie sandwich to heat on the fire.
Did I mention that I am eschewing alcohol until Paul's Dirty Enduro in September?! So far, so good but I have developed an exemption system with Chris, my abstention partner, that will allow for some leeway at certain events during the year. Five exemptions is the current agreement. I'm drinking a lot of coffee in the meantime. The good news is that despite continuing sleep disruption, a moderately sub-par diet and the winter sniffles, I do feel better on the ski trails and I am fairly sure that the drink-free regime is contributory.
