Mind over Matter

Mind over matter is very powerful.  I hit the slopes again today after making a much needed upgrade yesterday or new boots and bindings.  Also, the weather is more like spring skiing today.  I am a total fair weather skier. 

I ski and I board.  I can basically ski anything as there was a point in my life where I made the ski leap.  It wasn't that my abilities changed it was more that my state of mind changed.  Not sure I will ever get to that level boarding.

Jess, Josh and I went out together this morning.  We ended in tight trees with steep moguls.  I went down a bit and bagged.  I took off my board and walked down.  Jessica said to me, I have the skills why don't I go for it.  Why?  State of mind.  I fear the pain and agony I will go through to get my comfort state ofTrees

All I can think of going down a trail like that on my board is my back, my knee, my life.  Promised Jess I'd ski
for a few days in March where my comfort level on a narrow tree mogul slope still remains high, at least for the moment. 

This is a picture of Josh and Jess at the top of one of the lifts.  The other one is an area where you can see where the tree line ends which reminds you how high up you are.
