Happy New Year

Last week, a dimwitted Nigerian (excuse the redundancy) tried to blow up a plane by igniting explosives hidden in his underwear (an area in which I profess to have much expertise.) As tempting as it might seem to write about incompetent Islamic extremists, I choose not too.

I'd prefer to start roundseventeen 2010 on a lighter more positive note.

Plus, I'm a little rusty from the holiday break.

And so today I'd like to leave you with this short video of my oldest daughter Rachel, tackling "Christmas Tree", one of my favorites runs at Mammoth Mountain.

Was she the slow and steady skier or the fast and bold snowboarder? Either way, I like.

My daughter is the slow, steady one. And though she's slightly more advanced than a Novice, she fearlessly and eagerly takes on hills with blue squares or blue squares within black diamonds.

You gotta love that spirit.
