The snow has finally come to the Sierra Nevada, giving those of us who moved here to be close to the mountains all the more reason to be thankful. If you're able to make skiing part of your Thanksgiving holiday this year, here's a little something to offer up before you drop in:
Now I point 'em down the steep,
I pray to Lord this powder's deep,
If my turns don't face-shots make,
I'll have another run to take.
