My ski season has started!!!!

Today was my very first day of the season. And even though it wasn't a full day (I was only out there for a few hours), it was great to be finally skiing.

My home mountain is Okemo, Vermont, and they always do a great job making snow. Not too much terrain was open, but the conditions were good and it snowed early in the day, which made it extra nice. Okemo is blasting its snowmaking guns like crazy, so more trails will be opening each day.

Interesting, though -- every year I have the same crazy, irrational thought: What if I've forgotten how to ski? I know it makes no sense, but there it is. Usually it's gone after just a few turns. But I wonder -- does anyone else feel this way, or is it just me?????

Here's wishing all of us a great '08/'09 season!

Be sure to visit, the online home especially for women skiers, where women skiers can connect with one another to talk about everything and anything ski-related.

I'm about to start my ski season, and I am terrified that I won't remember how to do it. (Granted, I just got ski-confident this past year, but we went 10-12 times last season, including to Tahoe!)

My plan is to start on the magic carpet slope. It feels silly, and now that I do the lifts, I *hate* how slow the carpet is, but it's a safe place to build my confidence!
