Today I joined a girls ski day with Maura, Emma, and Maggie up at Crozet. Derek and I have been up there snowshoeing, hiking, and for the always painful training runs in summertime, but this was my first ski trip to Crozet, only a few miles down the road. Each time we ski, I am impressed by how much the girls improve, and today I was especially impressed that they could lead me around the slopes. We made a few challenging runs, slid through narrow tree trails, navigated through a dense cloud, and then had some fun following the leader. Top that off with some hot beverages and a little bit of sunshine, and it was a great day.
