I had a rough day in Santa Fe Saturday. Warming up for the GS race I crashed coming over a cat-track roller at about 35 in a turn. Blew off my ski and slid downhill on my back for 80-100 ft. Then I went over to the race course... and things didn't improve much. Poor performance and my 2nd run got later and later. I couldn't hold the edge with the speed, and then I was way out in the rough.



Jeff and I got a beer and dinner at the Railyard in SF before I headed up to Taos to crash with Briana and Josiah. Good party at a great house with a hot tub on Blueberry Hill.




Up at Taos I happened into Lance, Soup, and Michele. Leigh and Arthur, Paul, and Ben was up too, in addition to Bri, Josiah, Marc, Meghan, and others from the house. Wow, what a ski party! Ben, Lance, and I peeled off and skied bumps for most the day. I got 4 ridges in Juarez, North Face (tough!), St. B, and St. B to Elevator (maybe?). Lance, Ben, Soup, Michele and I got Lunch and a beer at the Bavarian in the sun, but then the weather turned south. The last ridge hike had blowing snow with nearly no visibility - thank goodness for my beard, because it was freezing. Then the long, miserable drive home at 30 mph on packed snow.
