Ringing in the New Year in Santa Fe’s Majestic Mountains

Ski Santa Fe

New Year’s Day 2012 was cool and crisp and snow-covered as we wound our way to the top of the mountain 18 miles outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Above 12,000 feet the air is very thin and I could feel myself starting to breathe heavy.  When you’re used to being near sea level, this increase in altitude has a definite impact. 

Skiing Lessons at Ski Santa FeI was excited to try my hand at skiing again, but since it had been 25 years, ski school was a must.  After half a day, I was ready to head downhill, at least a small hill.  Most of the skills came back just like riding a bike. 

The view from the chair lift was beautiful.  Many of the snow covered trees were still green and the fresh snow glistened in the sunshine.  There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the journey to the bottom was invigorating. 

I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than pointing the skis downhill and feeling the cold breeze on your face.  The Ski Santa Fe facility was near perfect with short lift lines, reasonable prices, a nice cafeteria, a great ski and snowboarding school, and breathtaking scenery. 

The best part was sharing the experience with my husband and close friends.  I can’t wait to visit again!

Giving Thanks

Fall Foliage in Frisco Texas

Fall is my very favorite season. The cool breeze replaces the sweltering still air of summer; football returns and has sports fans of all ages fired up, and people finally take the time to express thanks to those who mean the most during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The first “Thanksgiving” was in November, 1621 as the Pilgrims celebrated their first harvest, but didn’t become a national holiday until 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln declared it so in the midst of the Civil War. Today, many of us travel hundreds of miles to enjoy a bountiful feast surrounded by family.

You have undoubtedly noticed the plethora of television ads touting retailers’ Black Friday sales encouraging consumers to hurry into stores as soon as their empty forks hit the plate. I would urge you instead to slow down and enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend. Take this time to give thanks to those you cherish – family, friends, colleagues and clients. A little appreciation goes a long way this holiday season.
