Ski season is over

So with mixed emotions I officially announce that ski season for Melissa and I is over, it is suppose to be 62 degrees for the next 3 days. I am a little bummed because we had such a crappy winter, no snow until early March, if we would have had a normal winter I would be ok with Spring being here. I am hoping that next winter is better for us. We are thinking about buying season passes for Lutsen next year. We had a lot of fun skiing up there the couple times that we were there, even they had a crappy season, not much snow up there either which is really rare. I am hoping they get slammed next year and we can get up there in December instead of February like this year. Melissa bought a pair of powder skis for next years trip to Big Sky, we are planning on getting back out there and spending an entire week in the bowls, playing in the pow. So I will be on the hunt for powder skis as well early next spring. But now I am focusing my attention on baseball and mountain biking. We bought a 20 game package of season tickets for the Twins this year and I am looking forward to another season of baseball. I am also in the market for a new bike this spring. I think I am going to upgrade my mountain bike to something a little better, I really want to ride the trails by my house at least 2 times a week. I think it will help in my quest to ski Liberty Bowl next year at Big Sky, which is a run that comes from the top of Lone Peak. From what I understand it is just a beautiful run because you have a 360 degree view of everything from up there. And on a clear day I guess you can see the Tetons in Wyoming. So I really want to be a good shape for that. But anyway bikes are really damn expensive and it looks like you really can't get anything good for much under about $750. So I am going to sell my current bike first before taking the plunge on a $1000 bicycle. Other than that I am glad it is Friday, I am ready for another weekend off. Not very much on the fun ticket for the weekend, just some relaxing and I plan on firing up the old BBQ... Stay tune for more good times.
