Since mid January, I’ve been working 50% in our Salt Lake City (from now on referred to as SLC) office. This means commuting out there every other week. As the Winter Olympics are underway in Torino, Italy, it’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since the 2002 SLC Olympics…and I was there then too!

At least for now I’m making the best of it. I’m commuting mid-week for win-win situation. Airfare is cheaper going from Tuesday to Tuesday than Monday to Friday. And during snow season, it allows me to be in SLC every other weekend, where I can take advantage of access to at least 7 ski resorts, rather than having to fly home from work and get right back on a plane to a ski vacation.

While the work is demanding, Jeff has been able to come out and we’ve done some snowboarding in Park City, Brighton and Solitude. We enjoyed snowy days at the Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resorts, and sunshine at Brighton and Solitude. Jeff has enjoyed getting out, and I think I’m finally reallygetting the feel (this is my third year) for the snowboard.

As the snowboard season wanes and the work deadlines evolve, my commute schedule will likely change. But for now, I’ll make the best of it.
