Knowing my own limitations, I hope I will not push myself beyond my safety and health limits. Today was a fabulous day of powder skiing. We were blessed with about 8 inches of really light stuff overnight. I was still finding untracked lines even at 2:00 PM today. I knew enough, however, not to push the umbrella and cut out about 2:30 PM.
For those of us that have had a hard competitive edge all our lives, it continues to be a challenge to back off and just enjoy the ride and quell the desire to conquer the hill. A reminder we don't have to prove anything anymore.
