Achilles… toe? 8th day skiing, Squaw Valley

Arrive at 11 AM, park in furthest lot from the lifts:

First run, trees on Red Dog. Pep talk to self: It’s okay to be afraid as long as you keep your hands forward.

Second run, Siberia. Must pause for photos.

But, no complaints. Don’t want to flunk retirement.
