Sunday at Mt Bachelor

Sunday was the day for skiing. The ski report showed 6 inches of new snow, 23 degrees and only moderate (20 mph) wind. We started the day with a nutritious breakfast of Noah's bagels (brought from home) and Borgia (orange mocha) from the local coffee shop, Bella Tazza.

The drive to the mountain was a little snowy. After renting short shapely skis, we hit the slopes to find that the visibility was just ok and the snow was deep and chopped up by the early bird skiers. But never fear, our rental skis were just the thing, in fact, snow that would have sent us running for home with our old skis was exactly what the skis liked.

Every run was spent seeking out the least tracked, deepest powder and it only took about 2 hours of that kind of fun to wear us out. The last two runs.... Canyon and Tippy Toe. Black diamond, completely ungroomed powdery moguls....way, way too much fun. Guess we're converts of the short fat skis.

Headed home for a quick lunch of quesadilla, guacamole and chips and a nice hot bath. We had another dinner and a movie night. Wonderful chopped salad: lettuce, tomato, avocado, green onion, cucumber, Mrs. Mays Naturals Fruit & Nut Crunch (from Costco, chopped up), beef summer sausage, and goat cheese. Accompanied by crusty italian bread with goat cheese spread.

Movie: Spiderman 3. Not as good as the first two, but ok.

Pretty snow-covered tree in front of our condo.
