Doing more... with less!

It's been quite a few years since we began our ski season with so little snow and as we were skiing yesterday I was amazed at how well we were able to adjust our expectations to less-than-optimal conditions. So far, skiing around Park City has mostly been possible on man-made snow and as we were skiing on a few runs only covered with thin, rare and precious “natural” stuff, I was reminiscing the “good old days,” during early seasons, long, long ago, when “roughing it” was the sole option.
When hope that one-of-these-days snow would finally fall was part of everyone's expectations, period. Even as we all threaded yesterday on that thin, natural cover, we all had a great time and were quite pleased with what we could get. Following a year of “feast” with above-normal snowfalls, the period of “famine” that befalls us at the moment may constitute that healthy dose of reality that we require, from time to time!
