Does scenery get any better than this?
More ski stuff … sorry, but that’s all we did … ALL Day! As you can see from the blue sky, it was a gorgeous day for skiing.
It was also a day of many firsts.
Sam and I skied our first Double Black today. It was steep, full of moguls and it was treed. The Sunshine trail guide says it is one of the meanest ways down the lower half of Goat’s Eye. I’d have to agree.
It dawned on me (just prior to taking this run), while watching the kids ski moguls (much better than I can), that it wouldn’t be long before they leave me behind. It was also was clear to me that I am a pretty good skier, who lags a little in the courage department. I decided that I really need to push myself a little more.
Georgia had a big day too! She had her first lesson, rode the magic carpet on her own and skied her first run. It was cute, cute, cute! I have the video of course! I actually have about a dozen, but I won’t subject you to all of them … maybe just one or two. I’ll have to go through and pick out the best once we are home.
My favorite video of the day is Lizzy skiing the Eagle’s Nest (my favourite run). She takes her dad (the camera man) for a little surprise rie right at the end. Love it!
(Note: as I publish this post, this youtube video still hasn’t propigated?! If you can’t see it … sorry! I am hoping it will show up soon). *Update: switched to Vimeo
