Ski Week

We are at the end now of "Ski Week".  In the olden days, this was a week where school kids would pile on the bus and head up to our local ski resort for ski lessons.  This year, our elementary principal wanted to rekindle some of that.  He arranged a 2-day series of field trips, with some fantastic rates.  But wouldn't you know it, the first day was cancelled DUE TO SNOW!  We got socked by a big, wet, cold storm that played havoc with our roads, even at the 2,000 foot level.  But here we are on the second day, heading off for a day of skiing. 

Now, I need to point out, this is photo is taken at the school, before we even got on the bus. Yes! That is what it looked like at 2,000 feet! What a day to go to 7,000 feet! 

The wheels on the bus go Thump Thump Thump.  All the way up the hill (with the chains on).  Sing it with me now!

We had a great day.  Although it looks cloudy-foggy here, we drove up into sunshine.  Mark chaperoned a group of boys, and I chaperoned a group of girls that ended up being just my two!  I hope to go a couple more times before the end of the season.  Because spring skiing is my favorite!


  1. Sounds like lots of fun--hoping you guys had a great day. I hope you have some action shot for another post.
