This is what I miss. Waking up to light, fluffy, and fluttery Utah powder and people itching to get up the canyon to play in it. I haven't skiied much in the last few years because I was living in L.A., but when I was little, skiing is what we did on the weekends. Every weekend. Up to 60 times in a season! I miss that.
When we move back to Utah (notice I didn't say if), I am going to get my little family back into skiing. Me. Lee. And our little girl. I started skiing at the wee age of 3. And I loved every minute of tearing down the slopes with my Mom and Dad. I think it made me fearless and independent. And it gave me an early appreciation of the great outdoors and the gorgeous Rocky Mountains. I think it's just what every little kid needs growing up.
What was the first sport or family activity you all did together as a kid? Definitely skiing. Before I could walk, my Dad would take me skiing with him in a baby backpack. I am sure I loved the crisp, cold air on my chubby cheeks and the swooshing of my Dad's skis as he raced down the mountain. And race, he did. He was on a ski team as a young man and has never lost his love for speed. Me, either.
