❄️❄️❄️ This is what the day before a bluebird looks like • skiing today in the snow with fresh pow and nobody around was epic • oh yeah, I also fell over a thousand times as @sp_bev was patiently teaching me how to get down off-piste all in one piece ✌🏻😎
Still a goob wherever I go.
The first time I came to this place, I didn't know what I was doing. Driving to Alta, a place I'd never been and people I didn't know. I spent Thanksgiving alone in the desert along the way. The person who told me about Alta bailed on the season. I was still reeling from a complicated breakup. I felt utterly alone.
Then, this place. I turned down the road on a whim, it was crowded, a bus full of tourists snapping pictures. It was overwhelming, I almost left. Instead I waited. One by one, the people left. Until it was just me and my reflection and the mountains. Alone. It felt good.
This time, I am leaving a community. Of friends and love and snow and high vibes. It feels different. It still feels good. I can learn to be alone again.
