First ski trip of the season. Unfortunately I dinged up my thumb falling. So this entry will be short. Went to Bretton Woods with Tyson and Larry. (kind of like the first ski last year.) After a bit of anxiety I did remember how to telemark, and my new bindings and skis at least don’t disagree with me. Tyson called it quits a bit early on account of his knee. But hey, it looks like he might still be skiing. Beautiful sunny day. Larry and I got first tracks on a slope of ungroomed powder (there was a hike involved to get there.) Not very crowded at all. Christened my skis with some rock scrapes. On the drive back conditions got icy. I think we saw 14 cars off the side of the road. 7 of them were in the half mile where the traffic jam started.
