Goodbye Steamboat. Hello Mt Hood
28 May, 2010
Since I moved to Steamboat 4 years ago, I’ve lived in the same house with my dog that overlooks the Yampa Valley. Roommates have come and gone, friends have joined along for the ride but I knew eventually it would could to an end. Steamboat has been paradise in many ways; powder days were a plenty in the epic snowfall years, gondola rides were a 5 minute walk away and friends who lived for snow just as much as I did. It’s sad to leave paradise but I’m also ready to leave for new opportunities and new places.
With any job comes ups and downs but I left a great crew of co-workers at Steamboat who wished me luck and were excited for what lies ahead for me. It was the best going away day I’ve had in any job and I’m so glad I spent 4 years with the company.
As I left Steamboat yesterday with my truck packed full of all my belongings, I was more focused on the one thing I was leaving behind which is my dog Capita. She’s saying in Steamboat for the summer where she’ll have so much attention and love from a close friend. I knew going into this summer that bringing her out was slim with the living situation and that it would be unfair for her. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I know it’s best for her and that’s what counts. Come August I’ll be soo happy when I get her back.
Last night I made the journey into Utah where I’m staying with a friend in Park City, tomorrow is a fun day and I’m excited for possible opportunities that are here. My mom flies in to SLC tonight and will join me on the drive back to the northwest where I’ll be dropping off my belongings before I head to Mt Hood on June 1st.
So now the exciting changes are taking place, who knows what’s in store for myself and the future. I’m excited to be at Windells this summer, having a summer of shred working for a snowboard camp is a dream. The journey has begun…stay tuned!
