Sunny Day Risk

Another beautiful sunny day at Greek Peak ski area with great snow and excellent visibility. I missed the early day skiing since I had a morning meeting in Cicero, NY. However I did get on the slopes by about 1:00PM. Even with the higher temperatures the snow remained slippery with few spots of sticky snow. After skiing several runs on the groomed slopes I thought I might need the challenge of a mogul covered slope. Assuming that the Olympian would have soft moguls, I thought I would give it a go. After a few good turns off the top things fell apart and I found myself sliding down the slope on my side. Fortunately I still had my skis on and came to a more or less graceful stop. No one was on the slope to observe my embarrassment, so some of my pride was preserved. In some of my earlier blogs I suggested we should know our limits and stick to them. I obviously ignored my own advice to my own peril.

The rest of the day was uneventful but also pleasurable. For variety I did ski the rest of the groomed slopes and obtained sufficient exercise. The secret is to ski for fun and survive for another day.
