|My Friend had a GoPro and took some cool shots, I'm kinda thinking I need one in my world.|

Skiing is not for the faint of heart. And I'm not talking about the angle of the slopes, I'm talking about the price of a Lift Ticket- that sh*t cray. But I am a firm believer in the fact that part of what you are paying for is the amazing, gorgeous, wintery views you get to see along the way. Without Skiing in my life, I wouldn't get to see the magic of trails hidden high above the Valley floor or the top of an evergreen up close and personal or know the perfect simplicity of coasting a mild run in the pitch black of the night: it's a sensational place for retrospect.
However, the added bonus of spending hours doing what is essentially Cardio with your friends and family in a Postcard setting... just ain't too bad.
Welcome Skiing Season, I have missed you!
