- The roads were a mess. They don't salt in this area, which meant snow was compressed to ice.
- The lab shut down for the day. It was my day off anyway, but now everyone gets a free one. Adult snow days are way better than kid snow days (if you use them right.)
- Santa Fe ski area was pure powder, making my second time snowboarding an absolute dream.
I spent a lot of time on the beginner hill, but was linking turns and gliding -- not falling -- off the lift by lunch. I did a few runs on the regular hill (~1000' vertical) before my body gave up, which was just enough to get over my fears. It was a great time and I can't wait to go again.
