The next day, you might think, was really quite scary.
We threw ourselves off of cliffs that were, at best, quite hairy.
The snow that was there covered the mountain, but only just barely.
Nonetheless we slid down the mountain quickly and merrily.
There’s a thing you should know about Jackson Hole.
Going to visit too early in the season comes with a toll.
The mountains are quite rocky and legitimately quite steep.
And through that thin snow, the sharp rocks like to peep.
On the run before lunch in the middle of day one
We got stuck on a double black run that was not very fun.
The trees and the rocks and the misleading twigs
Made that run one of the toughest of all of our jigs.
But we picked and we turned and we made our way down.
We made it to the beer that obliterated our frowns.
Because, let’s be honest, everyone should smile while on vacation.
Especially when they hold in their hand a delicious libation.
After lunch we decided to head to the top of the hill
We were looking for a good ride, a really big thrill
We geared up and hopped on the hundred man tram.
There’s a sick bowl at the top? Let’s go, that’s my jam!
Attention! Attention! Said the driver when we got to the top.
Listen to this vital message before we come to a stop.
At the top of this lift are two dangerous things:
“Expert terrain and waffles are there,” the voice did sing.
One by one we started dropping into the bowl
Like we were dropping into a gigantic, bottomless hole
The run was a success, it was almost too fun.
And that was the end of our awesome day one.
