Last November, my husband and I moved (development refugees) from an urban area in SW Montana (30 years) to a rural town in SW Montana. OMG: culture shock/moving shock. I drove the distance to YNP and skied a number of great powder day! And, I also found some good skiing in the mountains in area where I currently live. Skiing has kept me centered and sane during this transition to the new planet. Any similar experiences?

Skiing is the only time anything makes perfect, whole, real sense and also I feel like I can completely express myself, even if the people I'm skiing with don't necessarily see this expression. It's in the feeeeeel. Especially today when it's hot. I don't do hot.

So yes, I agree wholeheartedly. Good luck with your summer in your new digs!

Cruising out into the gonz is religious....It's the whole Temple and knee thing with Nature being the guide....New places and new opportunities are a form of expression....one we all like....This year a small mountain range called the Black Hills is going to be high on my list....Bear caves...major cliffs...Long hardwood ridges....Will see...TM

Thanks for posting. Skiing really is the only thing that makes perfect sense. When you are doing that turn your mind is accutely in the moment and all other wordly static is shut out. That's why skiing is so good for our minds and souls.

Eloquent comment that really defines the novelty and adventure of skiing. Your words or were you quoting TM's?
