Ski Teaser from Summit Real Estate

in my email yesterday:


Happy Tuesday Morning to YOU!
Ready or not, here it comes!  A-Basin opened last week - after only being closed for 100 days!!!!  Keystone opens November 4 and Breck the week after.
Here's the scoop on Keystone (that's yours truly - Allison - with my daughter Mackenna- skiing in the ad!)
Pre-Ski Season Ski exercises.....  ;)
  1. Visit your local butcher and pay $30 to sit in the walk-in freeze for a half an hour. Afterwards, burn two $50 dollar bills to warm up.
  2. Soak your gloves and store them in the freezer after every use.
  3. Fasten a small, wide rubber band around the top half of your head before you go to bed each night.
  4. If you wear glasses, begin wearing them with glue smeared on the lenses.
  5. Throw away a hundred-dollar bill now.
  6. Find the nearest ice rink and walk across the ice 20 times in your ski boots carrying two pairs of skis, accessory bag and poles. Pretend you are looking for your car. Sporadically drop things.
  7. Place a small but angular pebble in your shoes, line them with crushed ice, and then tighten a C-clamp around your toes.
  8. Buy a new pair of gloves and immediately throw one away.
  9. Secure one of your ankles to a bedpost and ask a friend to run into you at high speed.
  10. Go to McDonald’s and insist on paying $13.50 for a hamburger. Be sure you are in the longest line.
  11. Clip a lift ticket to the zipper of your jacket and ride a motorcycle fast enough to make the ticket lacerate your face.
  12. Drive slowly for five hours- anywhere- as long as it’s in a snowstorm and you’re following an 18-wheeler.
  13. Fill a blender with ice, hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your face. Leave the ice on your face until it melts. Let it drip into your clothes.
  14. Dress up in as many clothes as you can and then proceed to take them off because you have to go to the bathroom.
  15. Slam your thumb in a car door. Don’t go see a doctor.
  16. Repeat all of the above every Saturday and Sunday until it’s time for the real thing.
See you on the slopes!

If you aren't a skier all of the above is likely to keep you home this winter.  (and that'll keep you from clogging up my lifeline !Ha!)  But if you are a skier, this just makes you antsy in anticipation.  I had contacted Summit Real Estate a few years ago when living in Summit County (right there next to Keystone, or Breckenridge, or even Copper) looked like an option. *sigh* and then we were thrown a curveball, and have been waiting it out.  Ski season won't hit here for maybe 2 1/2, 3 months and then it will be over 2 months later.  So this makes me look in the mirror and ask "why? do I live in Virginia again? why?"
