Nice to be back, I made my first turns of the year yesterday on a bulletproof and death cookies mix of manmade and got to thinking. I think I have reached a point where I no longer care about where I am making the tele turn or what conditions surround me. Rain, sleet, cold, shitty, foggy, slushy, crappy, crummy, don't matter when you are making THE Turn. As you can tell I am glad to be skiing again, I love the first day back!

I hear you. I made first turns about a week ago on a similar little strip of death cookies made of manmade. I was just happy to be turning them.
Last night I had to patrol at our local hill - and yes it is really just a hill. We're not officially open yet, but we have free lessons for the youth in the area at the beginning of the season. I was the only patroller who actually put boots and skis on and made turns. It doesn't matter how crappy the conditions are, it sure is better than the alternative of no snow at all!
But now about 18" or so of fresh and you wouldn't find me complaining!
