Satisfaction Survey

What does it mean to be truly satisfied?

It can be hard to verbalize, but I’m pretty sure I felt it today as I glided down the powder-laden slopes with some good friends.

The forgiving, effortless powder cradled  our every turn. Our breath started to quicken, not because the descent was a struggle, but because our adrenaline surged with excitement as gravity took over.

Today was the kind of day we’d been longing for ever since the lifts shut down last Spring.

The four inches of snow that fell yesterday afternoon had an etch-a-sketch effect, smoothing out all the tracks that had been left behind.

That meant the next four inches that fell overnight gave us just the kind of buffer we’d been craving.

A feather pillow to absorb our every move.

(Or at least the impact of our not-so-brilliant ones).

Officially, Satisfaction (n.) can mean several things:

1. the act of satisfying or state of being satisfied

2. the fulfillment of a desire

3. the pleasure obtained from such fulfillment

Hmmm. Pleasure….

Yep, that’s the one.

See you next time ~

    Satisfaction defined…skiing and being In snow is heaven. Skiing is one long fantastic orgasm…flying thru powder. ..hitting the pillows and over the edge…screaming Hidden Valley…and crankin the corduroy…doing a yardsale and getting up to do it all again. Going to Brundage is like going home to me…my entire family is on the hill…my beloved brother Joch is on the summit…my beloved dad and uncle are on the knoll…and mom is on the lake side.

    We skied Bogus Basin on Friday and Brundage Saturday and Sunday. What a difference! The powder was awesome and the kids still have smiles on their faces. We kind of got out of skiing after having Bogus passes and no snow over the last several years. We are going to get a Brundage pass from now on. Your ski school is amazing and was able to have our youngest looking like a pro, at least on the very bottom lift. Then when my oldest son fell and lost his ski the professionalism and quality of your ski patrol is second to none. Just one thing? What the heck happened to the great kitchen that use to cook real food???? The coffee was horrible and the kitchen couldn’t even cook french fries????? Score: Snow 10, On the hill employees and lift operators 10, Kitchen 1…… See you soon, sack lunch in hand.
