I have a love/hate relationship with skiing. I hate it because I have never been able to find a boot that I can wear without extreme pain or that fits my bigger calves. It’s really hard to enjoy it when you are in paint the whole way down. Every year I say this is my last year and I am going to retire. So far I am on year four..that’s pretty amazing. I love it because I do see myself improving and it means so much to Tom that I enjoy it. I was lucky enough to take a lesson this year (thanks Lisa!) so hopefully I improved even more. I enjoy the atmosphere and seeing Tom’s younger cousins become phenomenal skiers is so amazing. This year we left early and went to Alta to ski for a day. That ski resort is in Salt Lake and a world of difference from Jackson Hole. The slopes are shorter and much easier, I think I learned how to ski at an “old age of 22” and at one of the most challenging resorts!
The view is good. 🙂Megan in the background.The rest of the gang on the chair lift.Wyatt loves to jump. I don’t think there will come a day when I jump. This was my first experience of skiing on a cloudy day. Totally different experience.
It takes away some fear because you can’t see down, but it is also scarier because…you can’t see down. Riding in the gondola is fun…except the part where you have to get out (and you are really high!) and then you have to ski down!
Luke on the slopes. How amazing is it that this boy has been skiing since he could basically walk. Unbelievable.
