First off, thanks to the Colorado Crew (TekFox, Direwolf, Nitewolf, and Lonewolf) for setting up this great skiing vacation.
Also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darkwolph  for driving [livejournal.com profile] nitropup  and myself to the ski slopes. 

I'll just say that the slopes at Copper Mountain kicked my ass. Being just an average skier, the slopes in a 3 hr radius of Chicago offered little challenge except for poorly made mogul runs. 

Luckily, Mother Nature blessed the previously snow-deficient Rocky Mountains will about 6-12" of new snow per night over this past weekend. This new powder definitely made you work on your technique and control. 

I got over some of my fear of moguls with tips from kodi_pup and darkwolph. Most of the time was also spent skiing with my pup, Nitropup who easily beat me down many of the ski-runs. His control has definitely improved in the last year. 

I stole the image on the right (me and Akita) from SharpShooter Imaging who was on the slopes taking pics of many skiers. They also happened to grab about 40 shots of crazy furries in suit skiing down the slope. While the suits do keep you warm, the visibility stinks. It was like skiing with your eyes closed and following the noise of the skiers in front of you. 

So all in all, a great time with many other furs. You know who you are. I can't wait for the next time so I can tackle even tougher moguls and slopes. As Kodi shouted just before skiing down a challenging slope: "Get busy living, or get busy dying." :)
