Skiing Okemo -NYE 2013

I was fortunate enough to get a few days off of work to celebrate the coming of 2014 and the conclusion of 2013. We headed north to spend 5 days in the mountains of Vermont. After getting almost 17 days of skiing in last season the bar was set pretty high. We broke in our legs the first 2 days and lucked out with some 8 inches of snow fall on Sunday night. Monday we got first tracks and skied hard. I took the plunge and picked up a new pair of boots. I also got some killer hestra gloves for Christmas. File both under “You gotta have the right tools”. I guess I can now say I’m a full on skier.

Total stats for the first 5 days:
Vertical decent: 36,607 ft
Miles covered: 40.9
Top speed:44

Pretty good start seeing that total vertical decent last year was 95,902
