Powder Paws...

.......Or is it Powder Pause? 

So, you think it's snowing?
Frank, a good friend suggested a few weeks ago to work on my Powder Paws.  Since I am left handed, I interpeted it as Paws of a Cat walking on the snow. With that suggestion, I would ski like a cat, trying to be light on my feet.

  A couple of days later I realized he meant Powder Pause, as in hesitating your turn and stay in control in the deep powder.  It will take a few weeks more for me to live this one down.  HA HA, yes, this is funny stuff..
Frank, my mentor...I'm practising my paws/pause!!!

Well, today was an extreme powder day!  Bob has demo skiis to play with; Rossignol S7's powder skiis.  We flew through the deep stuff!!!! Bob loves these sticks.  He adapted to the new skiis with no problem and is gliding through the powder without effort, except for the laughter and WO HO YEAH!
 I, of course was looking for fresh tracks (and there are lots of fresh stuff left).  I sure found it, up to my thighs.  Wow, it was fabulous skiing.  All yelps of hilarious giggles throughout the day.
Judy & I have a special relationship.....we're very close & cuddly

Stance: Your knees should be flexed, but shaking slightly; your arms straight and covered with a good layer of goose flesh; your hands forward, palms clammy, knuckles white and fingers icy, your eyes a little crossed and darting in all directions. Your lips should be quivering, and you should be mumbling, "Why?"

A great powder day!!
Bob is a proud new owner of a pair of Powder sticks and he loves them.  It's great to see him enjoying the snow so much after his recovery.  Good timing Bob!

38 cms of snow has fallen in the past 2 days. The rumour in the coffee shop is approximately 94 cms in the last 2 days at the Summit.  Guess where we will be?

Four more days of snow in the forecast. 

More exploring and having fun together is also in the forecast...
