10. You have to give it a go someday.
I love nothing more than waking up at the cabin in the winter, gearing up and driving the 20 mins to Breckenridge to the slopes, then schussing down all morning until I'm too tired. It's magical. Really. The snow is like ground diamonds, the air is so cold you can taste it, the sun so bright it hurts. You get to the top of the lift and curve around and there's the slope just waiting for a soft slide down. Love it. Just nothing makes me feel more connected to life than skiing.
