Nov 25: Opening Day!

Alta opened today.
To celebrate the first official day of the season, ski costumes are essential.

Marge Simpson came out of the trees.

She rips.

There was also a rare sighting of a North American snow giraffe.

You've never seen a giraffe drop a knee like this.

What an odd couple.

It was super fun riding in a giraffe outfit, although the wind resistance was tougher than expected. I made it two laps, then ditched the headgear and torched the mountain in the giraffe shirt, complete with tail.
I may have to bring it out again. It made a lot of people smile, or at least snicker.
