Top 5 Awesome Things about Ski Weekends

Happy Groundhog Day!! I heard that the groundhog saw his shadow which is good news/bad news depending if you love/hate winter.

There are two types of people that live in the Northeast:
1.) People who hate winter
2.) Skiiers

Blessedly, I am one of the lucky ski bunnies that relishes snow, especially on the mountains in Vermont and New Hampshire.  This weekend me and 15 other ski bunnies, are headed up to Sugarbush in Vermont to "shred mad pow".  In that mind, here is an allegory of the five things I love about ski weekends.

Chocolate+Alcohol= Happy Bellies
1.) FIRES- Every overnight ski weekend I've been on has consisted of at least one if not more fires. People like to build them, play Scattegories next to them, and make some sweet s'mores on them. So get out your boy scout hand books, a bunch of logs, and matches and ignite the pyromania inside of you.

2.) Hot beverages- Cocoa and coffee with a little splash of Bailey's, Kahlua, or Peppermint Schnopps after a cold day on the slopes are  the equivalent to a pina colada on the beach.  Virgin Swiss miss can also be available for those under 21.

3.) Fluffy Snow Banks- Nothing is more elating than skiing head first into a bank of snow that you know will catch you like a dreamy bag of feathers.  Snow banks are like bumpers on a bowling lane, you hope you won't have to use them, but it feels nice to know you can bounce the ball aka your body against them every once in a while.

Slopes gone sexy

4.) The Bra Tree- I always wonder who those girls are that remove their jackets, fleeces, and shirts to toss their bras at the ever-so-popular "Bra" tree. I will put this on my skiing bucket list and wear a particularly scandalous bra one day this season to partake in this mountain ritual (stay tuned readers for Girls Gone Wild-Ski Edition).

A different kind of "Hotty"
5.) Hotties- Little packets of stuff that warms my toes and fingers... I will forever be grateful for being the savior of the slow numbing of frost-bite that dares challenge my extremities in negative 10 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hope to see you on the Slopes!
