The end of envy?

If yesterday's skiing was any sign, we seem to returned into a normal winter cycle after a very dry and rather snow-less early season. Up until recently, ski pleasure in Utah was only the shadow of last season's glory, while rocks, stumps and twig avoidance had become the sad reality of our daily ski outings.

At the same time, I was hearing from my Alpine friends and family telling me how deep European snow was and how great skiing conditions had been since the inception of their season. Hard not to feel a bit jealous under these circumstances!

Since a week ago however, things began to turn around for us and decent, if not excellent skiing, regained its footing and its place into our lives, so now there's no more reason for envy as we've returned to become the home of the greatest snow on earth. Let's keep our fingers (not our skis) crossed!
