Skiing on Thanksgiving weekend.

November 28, 2010 Leave a comment

First time ever, I have skied in November. and I even managed to get out twice. very nice. It ash started snowing pretty well in November, and the resorts started opening (Crystal Mountain was the first top open – although with limited operations).

This past Thursday was Thanksgiving (happy turkey day everyone), and it was also opening day for The Summit at Snoqualmie where we have bought season passes this.

Since Friday was a holiday, I wanted to take Lara up skiing, even the weather forecast looked like it might be a bit “iffy” driving up there. But on the other hand, that is exactly what ensured that the place wasn’t overrun by people, so we drove up there and hat a good time.

I managed to shoot a bit of video since Lara is not able to ride on her own, which leave my paws free to operate the camera:

Lara showing a surprisingly strong retention of lessons learned a long time ago. First day of the season and she is doing turns and stops..

 

On Sunday I went up with Nisa for a short day. It was short because we had something to do in the afternoon, and since Nisa is new to the ski thing, I didn’t want to overwhelm her. Unfortunately since she cannot ski on her own yet, I didn’t have my hands free to video her, so that will have to wait for another day.
