Utah Ski Trip Powder Mountain

The 3rd day of our trip was filled with extreme highs and extreme lows for me. All in all, a crazy exciting day!!!

I still get butterflies when we pull up to a new mountain!!

Pulling up to Powder Mountain

We went to Powder Mountain.  A definite local spot.  This resort was huuuuuuge!  Like the name states, everything was covered in fresh powder.

The lifts were scenic to say the least.

I was really excited!

After my 2nd run (about 2 seconds after I took this cheesy picture), my legs cramped up so badly, it felt like a charlie horse from my calves to my quads.  I was dizzy, and a little disoriented.  I called it quits around noon.  I got sick (bleh!).  I gulped down about 5 or 6 cups of water and felt better once we drove to lower ground.  

After this trip, I have a new-found respect for water.  The altitude (11,000 feet up) dehydrated the body.  I underestimated what water (or lack there of) can do to somebody.

Water is nothing to mess with.

  2. Girl, you look too cute for someone who scaled a mountain twice 🙂 ….but think of the irony, you’re surrounded by frozen water and dehydrated. But it looks like chilly fun.
