19 December 2010 | Park City, Utah
So I know you're saying...what's a ski dude doing in a sailing blog? Most cruisers will tell you that in order to remain sane living on a sailboat that you must get off the boat periodically and get away, it's the only way you'll last long term. When my best ski buddy Russ Carlson, who at 67 will out ski most men half his age (except me of course), called me and invited me up to his beautiful Park City condo, it was just to good to pass up. I flew up to Utah on Friday and Russ and I skied most of the day Saturday, and a good part of the day today. Russ's condo is on historic Main Street right in the heart of Park City, we can walk to the lift, the restaurants and of course the bars. It's been snowing most of the time I've been here and after shaking off the rust from not skiing last season, Russ and I carved up the famous Utah powder on nearly empty runs. Skiing is one of my passions and although this has been a great little boat break, I'll be headed home in the morning and am looking forward to being back home on Si Bon.
