My friends have always been really into skiing and snowboarding, which is no surprise given the area we live in. The winter is full of snow and we are located within driving distance of 3 or 4 different ski resorts. Even though I grew up around here, I never got into skiing or snowboarding. My friends have been trying to talk me into taking lessons, but I never had the extra time or money. A few weeks ago, my friends talked me into going with them for a weekend at a ski resort. They had a nice lodge for us to stay in and all I had to do was come along and give it a shot. After the first night, I knew that skiing was not for me, at least not in that setting. All of my friends were experts, and I knew that I was slowing them down. I decided to spend the rest of the trip hanging back at the lodge while my friends skied and snowboarded. Believe it or not, I still enjoyed this trip very much! I had such a good time relaxing by myself. I never get peace and quiet, plus the heating was amazing! The lodge had radiant heated floors that were simply amazing. I cuddled up on the couch, enjoyed the warm air, and watched Romantic Comedies. I had a great time! At my house, I am used to a ratty old gas furnace. The radiant heated floors made the lodge so warm and cozy. You would think that to stay warm at a ski resort, I would need to wear a fleece and thermal leggings, but I was comfortable in a t shirt. I might have to look into installing heated floors in my own home!
