Peace and Pandemonium

Thursday, February 14, 2008



I had an interesting day on the mountain on Monday. Wendy and I decided that we were going to Sundance for a ski day. It was the most beautiful day. Sunny and warm and absolutely gorgeous. The snow was soft and we had so much fun. We stayed on the back mountain for most of the day and managed to get a lot of runs in. We were very efficient skiers.

Right around noon I got hungry so I ate it!! Unfortunately I'm not talking about food. I caught an edge and tumbled down Bishops Bowl for what seemed like 10 minutes. I couldn't stop myself so I just went limp and flailed down the hill. Thankfully the only thing that was bruised was my ego and my behind. In thinking back, that may have been where my problems really started but I'll get to that in a second. After a couple of hours, Wendy had to go but I wasn't quite ready yet. I stayed and skied solo for the rest of the day. Around 3:30 I started to get tired so I skied to the base and caught the shuttle up to my car. This is when I realized that I didn't have my keys. My pockets were stuffed with all kinds of stuff and I was in and out of them all day pulling out my camera and my phone and a plethora of other items. Apparently, at some point my keys fell out of my pocket (I blame my tumble down Bishops Bowl). With the storm last night, they are now probably covered by an additional foot of fresh snow. I have learned, although I still don't believe, that I now have to have my car towed to the dealership so that they can make the key. I guess they can't program my key unless the car is physically there, which I think is total crap, but that's what they tell me. I'm still trying to figure out a way to get my car out of the overflow parking at Sundance (Yes, it's still up there 3 days later) and back into my life without spending a small fortune in the process. The key alone is $110 and I don't even want to estimate how much it's gonna cost a tow truck to go clear up there. Bah! I think I'm going to wait for the roads to get nice and plowed and then hopefully get a friend to help me tow it out of there. I'll keep you posted!

Despite all of that drama, the day was probably one of the funnest ski days I've had in a long while. Of course I can count on one hand the amount of times I've been able to go in the past couple of years but still. I had a blast! Wendy and I are going to go again soon so if any of you want to sneak away for a couple of hours and hit the slopes, let me know. I might have to hitch a ride with you though. I don't know if I trust myself to keep track of my keys anymore.

I still can't believe the whole key fiasco Kiera! It WAS a great day other than that, huh? I wonder if we could put your car on our trailer to tow it down? I'll ask the one man AAA that is my husband!
I have loved all your posts. You take some really neat pictures. Love it, love it, love it.
I am jealous of the skiing and jealous of Wendy's perfect teeth.
What a beautiful day, those pictures are awesome. I'm sorry you lost your keys, I hate car trouble it's pretty much the story of my life these days.
I'm jealous of Wendy's perfect teeth too. No fair!!
sounds like our luck! i love the pictures of the mountain and of course you two beauties!!
