What we thought was going to be 4 - 6 inches of snow actually turned out to be closer to 18 inches so it was no surprise when our flight was canceled. Luckily we made it on a direct flight the next morning and were able to salvage a pretty decent vacation. Second to Yosemite, Park City, Utah is the most beautiful location in the United States that I have visited so far and the buzz during Sundance is so fun. The skiing is usually outstanding though it was a balmy 45 degrees this year. I wasn't complaining and I'm pretty proud of how I pushed myself on the mountain. It didn't hurt having a professional ski instructor as a ski buddy. You definitely feel more confident in your abilities when a pro convinces you that you can do it. I did, however, almost end up stuck under a cabin but that's besides the point. At least I tried and that will be the motto for 2011.
It always takes me a few days to get back in the groove after taking a trip but I'll be back to my regular blogging schedule tomorrow.
