    I went skiing on Saturday. It was a perfect powder day. The mountain received 11" of snow on Friday night, it snowed all day long, the temps at the base were about 30f (that's warm for skiing), and I was with a knock-out blond. We took the ski train up, so what turned out to be a 3+ hour drive for most ended up being a 1.5 hour train ride for us. Complete with beer, scenic views, and me (and a hot blond). Here are a few pics I took with my phone.

    Close your eyes, think of a cute blond with a hint of freckles on her nose, she's a smart-ass, loves beer, has a glowing smile, is proportioned well, and laughs at everything you say. See? No need to post a pic of her.

    I have family in Crested Butte & ski there whenever I can cobble together a good excuse to head east. Wish I were there now ... California snow's like pudding compared to what you've got.

    I'm with MJ, where's the snow angel. Was the blond a cougar?

    Yeah, you give her a snow angel and the next thing you know, she's asking for an Arapaho. There's no end to it.

    MJ, Why was the blond hot? Was her coat keeping her too warm or was it a hot flash.

    As you've demonstrated, Clark, the word "hot" has many definitions/uses.

    You know she was young, not a cougar, if she laughed at everything he said. The blond part fits in nicely with that too.

    It's the Blondy part. Jon just doesn't he's seem to be cruising the vegetable isle.

    It was not Blueshirt McHottie, Tracey, but the thought of her just made my heart race. It was Boozer.
