Spring …

Spring skiing that is …

The above video is Lizzy and Sam skiing the ski cross course at Norquay in Banff. They love that last jump.

We’re just home from 4 great days in the Rockies. Lizzy had a race at Norquay. What a great family ski mountain. I love the fact that you can buy hourly ski passes. It makes it affordable and very ski-able for a family with a 4 year old beginner.

It’s so much fun to watch. She is getting VERY good.

    Hello, stranger! I have missed you, but see on Facebook that you’ve been travelling for months … I had no idea!
    Great photos of Lizzy, you must be really proud of her! One day I guess I might see her in the Winter Olympics?

    Wow, that is so neat. I had no idea they had racing there. I was thinking of starting my kids in skiing in the next few years….

    Hey Deb, you’ll have to look at the Alberta Alpine site for clubs in Calgary (COP has one for sure). Kids 4-10 race in the Nancy Greene program and it is never too early to start. Lizzy actually started a bit late. Georgia is going to start next fall.

    OMG that was good video and good skiing! I can’t involve myself in any sport where snot could be running down my face and I can’t feel it but other people can see it frozen there upon me.

    Nice job. Wish I had that talent (and didn’t hate the cold).

    Thanks Jafer! We keep our mountain skiing almost exclusively to the spring. This week the temps are about 10c and the snow is plentiful. Best of both worlds :)

    Nice to have you back blogging! Missed your stories and great photos. Lizzy looks totally at home on the slopes.

    Looking forward to your next post!

    I love the concept of hourly passes! My kids love spring skiing but sometimes a day pass isn’t the most practical. Awesome pics of Lizzy!

    Thanks for dropping by Tina. The hourly passes are great and makes it really affordable.
