Skiing!

We went skiing this weekend and it was so much fun!!  We tried out a place in Anchorage we hadn't been to before, Hilltop Ski Area. It was great...a bit more family-oriented than the big resort in Girdwood.  Here we are on our way...


I wrote last year about my change of attitude towards skiing, so I can honestly say I was excited!  Really excited!  We had a fantastic day.  We skiied the whole 5 hours our lift tickets were good for.  Yeah.  5 hours.  We all slept well that night!  Some pictures...




Towards the end, Scott and Kelsey turned in their skis for snowboards...


...turns out that snowboarding is, "...not as easy as it looks, Mom!"  Here's a video of her trying it out...



Meanwhile, Stacy and I stuck to skis.  She found this little jump that she liked doing so we did it over and over.  She even convinced me to try it!  Here's a video of her 'jumping'...



We had so much fun and were so tired that BOTH kids fell asleep on the way home!  That's rare.  Not only did they fall asleep, but they were racked out hard enough that neither of them woke when we stopped the car to wait for the tunnel!



A great day!!

  2. K is right... Snowboarding is NOT as easy as it looks.
