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.

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.
