My wife and some friends and I all went to Appi to get some skiing in. This would likely be my last skiing trip from Misawa, as I’m due to be reassigned before next winter.
I started off on the black slopes and tried some of the techniques my friend Trigger taught me a couple weeks ago. Things went fairly well, although I still fell a couple times, mostly trying to get around moguls.
Thanks to Grace, my wife and I got to ski together for half the day while Grace babysat. This was the first time we tried skiing down the southwest slope, there were a couple fun runs over there with some fairly fresh powder, so that was definitely worth it.
Since we skiied more and babysat less, I got pretty tired by the end of the day. I wasn’t quite sore the next day, I was just pumped up enough to be primed for BFM/ACM for the next couple days!
