It wasn't all fun and games though...the first casualty was my dad's ski pole that was broken in half by a snowboarder who (after falling from a jump) was totally out of control and slammed into it. He just missed me and just missed my dad's leg so, all in all, we were really glad this was just a ski pole accident. Fyi the guy felt horrible and offered to buy a new one.
The second casualty was my dignity due to the fact that on the second day I fell ALL over the place. I blame the trails...straight, flat trails from one chair to another get me every single time. Any time I'm on a straight part I'm usually thinking 'don't catch an edge you're going too fast...don't catch an edge you'll fall over the cliff...broken bones are not fun' ...and then I catch an edge and faceplant. Feels sooooo good to have your feet go over your head.
Best way to fix a bruised ego and a bruised tailbone? Booze and food. We ended up at Fire & Ice on our second night (first night = pizza mmmm) and it was AH-mazing. You get a bowl and fill it with any of the dozens of veggies, seafood and meat that you want then you bring it over to the grill. Its a giant circular grill so everyone stands around by their food while two guys work insanely fast to get everything grilled up, cut up and seasoned. Those guys seriously earned their tips for working so hard. Oh and I should mention that this place is an 'all you can eat' place...well then...challenge accepted. I have some rules at all you can eat places to maximize my dollar$: minimal carbs/food that fills you up, max flavor (they had so many sauce options!), and eat as fast as possible before your body realizes its full. Nailed it!
|Mmm food...this is portion 1: tons o' veggies, salmon, tuna, teriyaki sauce and sprinkle of rice on top. Salad on the side. Second portion was more veggies, more salmon and a miso ginger sauce...mmm.|
|Hey I know where you're from.|
|Guess which one was for the birthday girl.|
