We went to Steamboat, CO 2 days after Christmas for a week. This was Izzy & Maggie's first time to ski...and our first time back in 9 years! Izzy did amazing in ski school & Maggie's 1 day in ski school was good...after the screaming subsided. After that, the school was booked up so we couldn't send her back since we only pre-booked 1 class for her. Bec & I also did 1 day of ski school & then we were on our own. Bec did really well & wanted to tackle steeper runs...I however, wanted to stay on the bunny slopes. ;-) I think I'm becoming more of a scaredy cat as I get older.
Highlights from our trip: some of us got stomach bug 1-2 days before we left, Maggie got it once we got there, we're all professional skiiers now, took a sleigh ride & went tubing on Saddleback Mountain (not to be confused w/ Brokeback Mountain), playing & sledding in snow, riding the gondola, bringing in the the new year as the snow fell.
