So, my season ended today and I decided to use this event as a chance to start an English assignment for school. I know all of you probably go through the same kind of thing, so tell me what you think.
As I drove away from the mountain today for the last time this season it all hit me. My life will be nothing without this, without the feeling of having a sanctuary, without having the brisk wind hot your face, without being committed entirely to something. The thing I will miss most, though, are the people I have met. I don't see anyone as my friend up at the mountain, I see them as my family, a family that is always there, the most incredible group of people I have ever met. Imagine being without your family for eight months, that is what it will feel like after today. I know you can still hang out with people other places, but not when all you have is a permit, and a lot of this family lives over an hour away.
Blue Mt. isn't just a place to hang out at, like a mall, Blue is a place of happiness, it's a home, it's a best friend. It's always there for you in times when you think nothing can make you happy, it's there when everything is crumbling down in your life.
Blue is my home.
I love Blue Mt. ski area.
Sorry if you really didn't want to read this but I was motivated by this season and I hope you guys liked it!
