What a beautiful day. Instead of running or cross country skiing, I decided to go to Mt. Alyeska and finally get in a day of downhill skiing. I skied for 4 hours and I could really feel it in my legs. It was the best skiing conditions I have ever seen. Beautiful spring snow. The weather was perfect, in the low 40's, bright sunshine and no wind. It doesn't get much better than that. It was the only chance I have had to downhill ski all winter.
