Winter park

It's time for our annual Thanksgiving vacation in the Colorado mountains. This year we headed back to Winter Park, and were hoping for snow. I had not skied at all this fall with a busy work schedule, and the mountain only opened last Wed, so i was worried. When we were up here a couple years ago, there was hardly any snow and only a few runs open.

Everyone else came up Sat night, and they went skiing on Sunday, saying the snow was great. I came back from new York and headed up on Sunday afternoon. Its cold up here, but the snow is great, with over 30 runs open. We hung out Sun night and then headed to the mountain Mon and Tues.

It was great, with lots of runs and good snow. Not much ice, and we did well cruising around the slopes, everyone doing well. We would take turns leading and following, kids in the middle with some good races down with Kendall and Kyle. It seems that Kendall and I had a lot of time together and Got separated from everyone else when they went to do a black and we setuck with green runs and a life closed. We had Kris, the soon-to-be uncle up Tuesday and he skied with us.

Today we took a day off with. Lots of wind and cold weather expected. We decided to do Thanksgiving today and Tia cooked a meal with a little help from Kendall. We had the traditional turkey, cranberry sauce, potatoes, etc.

A nice relaxing vacation, mostly unwired, and with good skiing. Looking forward to getting back on the slopes tomorrow after the break today
