Last weekend, Richie and I decided to head up to Boone and go skiing! It’s been about 5 years since we’ve been, but we were hoping we would pick it right back up. I was a little shaky at first, but once I got my confidence, we had a blast. The weather was perfect – not a cloud in the sky and about 38 degrees. After it got dark, Sugar Mountain turned on their snow-makers and the temperature dropped to about 21 degrees. So, we skiied until about 7:30, even though we had a lift ticket that was valid until 10:00. We were cold, achy, and exhausted. We stayed in Boone on Saturday night and drove home on Sunday morning. It took less than 2 hours to get there, so we’re already planning another trip to Boone this winter. We may go skiing again, or we may just take the day to visit all the quaint shops and go to Grandfather Mountain.
