Time to Ski

About a year ago, I hurt my knee playing soccer and my ACL was subsequently reconstructed. Therefore, I could not ski last winter. This winter, with my knee fixed and rehabbed, and a nice black brace, I’m making time to ski.

That’s exactly what I did today: ski. Day trip to Hunter Mountain with a friend who now lives in Connecticut. We put in a full day, with the last run at closing time (4:00 p.m.).

Got a shorter, lighter pair of skis in October, thinking I’d need something easier to turn with. After the first couple of runs, I got my groove back and started rippin it.

I can ski again!

    This was on the Way Out trail, so I was moving pretty fast.

    Skis aren’t really crossing, just seems that way from afar. I was in the midst of weight-transfer.

  3. I’m here to testify that Andreko still has the right stuff! If you fix your bindings you should be good for another 35 years or so, (as per our lodge friend). I just hope I can keep up!

  4. Good for you! We’re leaving first thing tomorrow to ski. Hope I fair as well with my nice black brace…

  5. I guess this year Hunter Mountain skiers will be skiing on the real stuff. Glad to hear your ski trip went well – it’s always good to get back into the groove.
