4pm shut down--I wanted more runs

Not a bad day as a SoCal native I actually last skied when I was 14, OMG that was 20 years ago. THIS TRIP, I had faster runs, no falls, flew past superior skiers, was over-taken by faster skiers, ... it probably helped that I'm a life-long athlete and enjoyed a professional career as an Ice Speed skater in my 20's... so that probably accounts for the overall fast and good day... Driving up was not bad, would have taken an extra hour to get to Summit ... got in early enough to get in an afternoon of fun! ... and I also had time to teach my wife on the bunny slope ...

I'll catch a full day next week, you can tail-gate in the parking lot and I'm gonna have some heated PHO noodles,

I'll also hold off on the Xanax as them old-school lifts are for real, especially when you take them to the top of the mountain!....

On the drive down, Pull into Running Springs restaurant PEPE's food or something like that...

The Jessica Rabbit waitress is worth the trip alone!
