Nothing like “home advantage!”

I went skiing at Snowbird yesterday in the company of my son and grandson. When the youngest of the group had enough skiing for the day and left with his dad, I stayed for two more hours.

I first I felt a bit awkward because I wasn't feeling like “at home” where I know the terrain like my back pocket. It took me the rest of the afternoon to feel “normal” again, as I re-familiarize myself with a completely different terrain.

Next time when you go skiing to a strange place and ski with a local, you're guaranteed to be utterly impressed with your guide ski level, but don't forget either about his huge... home advantage!
