As I arrived at the Solitude Village the bell tower struck eleven and greeted me with tunes that completed the feel of strolling through a small European ski village.  Instead of finding myself in Austria or Switzerland I have arrived at a resort that represents Utah skiing at it’s finest.  After a quick trip to the ticket office the day was afoot with plenty of sunshine and other fortunate souls that would find excellent coverage and a great spring skiing experience in November.  Amongst the lucky was a wonderful Peterson family from Park City including their young daughter Sonja.

I commented that she was fortunate to have such awesome parents to take her up and enjoy the mountain today.  As for me the reward of a great skiing experience is not only being up in the fresh air, but getting in ski shape.  With some Slalom skiis on for the day carving turn after turn is the best way to knock the rust off for what I know is coming in the near future……POWDERfile://localhost/Users/Mikes/Desktop/photo-10.JPG
