Blanket Feb 22 to 26th, 2019

My 26th time and not my best showing.  Definitely felt the lack of skiing from missing all last year due to shoulder surgery and no hockey for 3.5 years(used to play 3 x week.)  Lower snow year and much colder than normal so not as much fun or motivation. Conditions were still good so did […]
