Sunday was a perfect spring day. The weather was warming and sunny. I headed to Jackson to go for a ski. At the lodge, I met my friend and fellow instructor, Connie Kinsman. There wasn’t much going on with lessons, so she had time to ski. We drove up to Valley Cross Road parking lot to do the Wave.
