Day One - New Season
Today was opening day at Greek Peak for the 2012-2013 season. It is always a pleasure to return to the slopes with the anticipation of renewing old friendships and enjoying the skiing experience. There was only a small representation of geezer skiers. Perhaps a total of a half dozen of the geezers appeared this morning. Two slopes were available. One for beginners and an intermediate slope for the rest. Even if one keeps in shape with other activities, skiing affects muscles in a different way. After seven runs it was time for the traditional coffee break. After a few wrap up runs on the beginner's slope it was time to call it a day. Best wishes to all that come later in the day. We will look forward to many more enjoyable days on the slopes.
