Snow Days

Adventures3 Comments

Time for some snow! I haven’t even put gas in the snowblower here at home this year. So it was time to get the kids up into the snow. We do live in Colorado after all. Our friends, the Whites, invited us up to Steamboat for a few days. We stayed at a nice condo right on the side of the slopes so you could walk out of the condo and get right on the lifts. That was nice. Each morning it was nice to wake up and look out the windows and see the mountains.

I didn’t ski with our new SLR camera because I didn’t want to worry about it all day. Maybe I need a cheap-o camera to carry for this kind of stuff. However, we did take the kids on a gondola ride so I was able to shoot a few shots at the top of the mountain. Our new camera has some crud in it so the sky has this tornado looking thing in it. Gotta get that fixed this week.

Becky took this shot on her phone of the trees up near the top. The snow looked like marshmellows.

The highlight of my trip was getting Sydney onto some skis. We will do a full post on Syd’s site on the experience but I can tell its going to be fun to continue the training!
