Skiing in August?

Not quite, but it looks like I'll be getting my first ever season's pass this year to Stevens Pass. I have a few friends who had seasons passes last year and loved it. This winter will likely be the last winter I'll be a full time student, so I'm going to get the sweet $299 student pass. We'll probably have Fridays off in the cohort later in the Fall, so I'll have three days every week to ski.

Whenever I think of skiing in the summer I always think back to my days in Ski-attle, a Seattle-area ski program for middle schoolers. We would go up to Snoqualmie after school on Friday and get back into town around 10:30-11:00pm. Us kids were usually sleeping on the bus ride back and we'd stumble out from the bus and into our parent's vehicles. It would usually be raining when we got back into Seattle, but the rain would feel warm compared to the sub-freezing temperatures in the mountains... much like the summer rain we are having today.

I hope to be better by late November! We will have to hook up for a trip! My girlfriend and I both like to hit the slops!
