Greetings, Schweitzer Fans! Who’s got their sunglasses out today? Easy temps and not a cloud in the sky today! As I’ve referenced many times before, today would be a great day for goggle tans. What better way to mark your skiing prowess than a two-toned face?
Earlier today as I whiled away the morning snow reporting, I had a flashback to one of my favorite YouTube clips of all time: “Treat Yourself” from the show “Parks and Recreation” (YouTube search “treat yourself”. You will not be disappointed). In the clip, two of the characters discuss how they take one day a year to treat themselves. What do they treat themselves to, you might ask? Clothes (treat yourself)! Fragrances (treat yourself)! Massages (treat yourself)! Mimosas (treat yourself)! Fine leather goods (treat yourself)! It’s the best day of the year!
Now, all the above treats all sound pretty good to me, but this is a snow blog so I thought I would remix this business to match our surroundings. Ready?
The Schweitzer Fans’ Treat Yourself List
New goggles-What better way to treat yourself than with some new protection for your peepers? Goggles aren’t just protection though; they’re one of the first markers of your steeze. Are you classic all-black? Wild camo print? Hot pink? Go crazy with this one, Schweitzer Fans.
Skis/board-Obviously this is a rather large treat, but if you’ve got the means, why not?! With how much technology changes every year, there’s always something new and exciting to try out. Update your quiver and treat yourself at the same time!
Skins-If you’re a backcountry maven or a hiking fiend, skins might be a great treat for you. Just make sure you know how to use them! (I really don’t, so I’m going to leave it at that).
Beermosa-Not exactly as luxurious as it’s more famous cousin the mimosa, but the beermosa is the drink treat of choice for the ski enthusiast. A little bit of beer, a little bit of mosa. How can you go wrong?
A trip somewhere epic-I am dead serious about this one. Getting out of your comfort zone on a ski, heli or cat trip would definitely be my number one pick for a treat. What better extravagance than getting out there and making memories during an epic ski adventure?
These are just a sampling of the many ways a Schweitzer Fan can treat themselves. Maybe sign up for a private lesson, or indulge your palate at the Chimney Rock. No matter how big or how small your treat yourself day is, the point is to take some time to appreciate yourself and this great place we live in! See you on the hill, Schweitzer Fans!
