Some days it was too cold for our skiers to ski, but since I wasn’t planning to ski anyway, I just did the things I usually do — blogging, reading, exercising … I finished a masterful biography of poet Elizabeth Bishop and launched joyfully into the first volume of Philip Pullman’s new series, The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage.

I discovered a new liking for a treadmill, but only one with a view of the mountains beyond an outdoor hot tub in a fitness center with no noisy music or TV. I set the treadmill at Snail. That’s not the very slowest, you know. Sloth is slower.

And I ate. A lot. The Austrian-themed food at the Trapp Family Lodge is pretty rich. I especially loved the breakfast buffet, where even though I ate a lot, I could make choices that were good for me.

The only thing I’d do differently is bring a tea kettle to make my own kind of coffee at 4:30 or 5. That’s just me. Lots of people like those Keurig, one-cup brewers using Green Mountain Coffee. The lodge has them in guest rooms. Lots of people are also able to sleep until 7, when you can get better coffee in the bar.

The trip was a nice break from routine. I hope you had a good holiday week, too.
