Katauna was a little shaky at first but by the afternoon she was tearing it up.
Needless to say it was a very cold morning, but all the kids got out there and were anxious to learn. They spent a couple minutes on the bunny slope but quickly were ready to hit the ski lift. They all did fantastic. By the end of the day they had graduated off “milk” (the easiest run – the only run I went on all day) and tried a few of the faster runs. It was really fun to watch them.
Here’s Teegan after a wipeout.
The afternoon was beautiful! The wind died down, and the sun came out. Because of the morning weather, I bet there weren’t more than 150 people at the resort all day long. We basically had the place to ourselves, walked onto every lift and could ski a run without seeing another person. It was the perfect day to teach the kids. (And for me to keep learning.)
At lunch time Jayla and Julie brought us homemade chicken noodle soup and hot chocolate. Yummo. A good part of the fun of that day came from hanging out with family all day.
McKyla opted to snowboard instead of ski. Luckily Uncle Dalan took her under his wing and taught her. She was carving it up pretty good pretty quick, Jason and I were both very impressed. She did have a crash that hit her head pretty hard and she is still sore from that, but got right back up and kept going. All in all, a proud day to be a mom. And a ton of fun!
