Today it wasn't just me playing hooky but our entire office. Boss man Brian treated SiteCrafting to a day up on the slopes for our end of the year holiday party. We caravaned up in three cars and all started skiing or snowboarding shortly after 9am. I mostly hung with Reena since she rides about the same pace (though slightly better) as me and we hooked up with some of the other guys from time to time. It was pretty breezy up there but calmed down in the afternoon as a fresh layer of powder was dropped from above.
Everyone made a great day of it and got off the mountain in one fashion or another. And by "another" I mean one of our own had a bit of a boo-boo as a first-timer on the slopes that required a long ambulance ride back to civilization. It was mostly a precautionary measure since he's doing just fine and was actually in the office working when I stopped by on the way home.
Thanks to Brian for a treating us to an otherwise great time! I can't wait to hit it again with regular snowboarding buddy Steve the day after Christmas.
