March skiing

Judy sure knows how to pick a good ski day! Brilliant sunshine but still cool temperatures so we had slightly fast, icy conditions in the morning which softened a bit by noon without becoming mushy.

Elliot and Natalie were on their second and third days ever of skiing, respectively, and did amazingly well! The hills at Uplands are just their speed and they became more confident on the chair and the slopes as the morning progressed. Bonus: it was "Customer Appreciation Day" with tickets at half price. Uplands is only 20-30 minutes from both our homes so we had plenty of skiing and were home in time for lunch, tired but exhilerated.Here they are at the top of the hill on their first run. Natalie: "Let's go!". Elliot: "I'm not sure about this". But by the time they reached the bottom of the hill, you can see his expression says. "That wasn't so bad". Later we took a break and continued for quite a few more runs before heading home. Better to quit while they were having fun than wait until they'd had it.


  1. What a great day. They were unbelievable!Thanks for coming with us, I couldn't have done it on my own!
