Christmas in Park City and birthday 52

When you live in Park City, most people go skiing for Christmas.  It may be only be for an hour or two, but it is a great way to celebrate out in the fresh air.  Julie and I went over to Deer Valley this morning to grab a few runs.

The mountain is mostly groomers right now, so we started a few of those off the Wasatch chair.  Honestly, it can get a little boring just cruising down the same runs.  Then the Christmas (or Birthday) Gods took notice and got Deer Valley to open the Sultan lift for the first time this year.  This meant there was a large bowl full of all the snow we have had this winter.  It was basically untracked and a few feet deep.
This is me, wearing as close as I can get to Christmas ski colors.  Orange and lime green is kind of close to red and green isn't it?
We skied the newly opened terrain over and over, until it was getting all skied up and we were getting tired. What an excellent birthday gift!

Now we may take a skiing break while the hordes of tourists are in town between Christmas and New Years.  Nice to be a local.
