sledding at Glen Shee

it's snowing

Snow! Dundee is full of snow and more is coming down right now.

Everyone says it'll melt off really quickly but it has stayed for 24hrs so far. Of course you all must know what this means...yes, skiing.

Well, I would rather snowboard.

I have been skiing for over 20 years, so I'm not too thrilled about gentle slopes and icey snow. Boarding, on the other hand, I've only been at that since this century and only have gone a handful of times.

It's much more fun to board when I'm around ski-beginners and hills that my mom would feel comfortable on.

We've already planned a trip for this Saturday. With more snow in the forecast for Thursday, we may have a nicely covered hill to slide on.

Granted, the snow will probably be pretty chalk full of ice and there are rocks under that. And, as I can't quite manage to always stay on my feet on a board, I'm sure I'll be black and blue by the evening.

But why bother at any sport if you aren't going to come home with battle scars!
