Saturday: Park City Mountain Resort
Combine a great family day on the mountain with lunch at the High West Distillery (we only like it for the food, of course) and I have to give Park City two thumbs up!
|Sam loves the groomers|
|Ben loves the crud|
|And Sasha loves the little tree chutes - we all found what we were looking for!|
Tuesday and Wednesday: Brian Head
Powder Mountain for our staycation so this year we thought we'd head south and try out the southern Utah resorts for the first time. And like last year, we got totally lucky with the snow - 29" over the 2 days we were there nearly overpowered the boys! Fortunately they had a comfy condo and nutritious Pop Tarts to return to whenever their legs got tired.
|As for Mom and Dad, we ate up as much powder as we could find!|
A good time was had by all although, candidly, I think the kids liked the steady diet of pizza and multiple daily trips to the hot tub even more than the skiing. Well, at least Brian Head had something for everybody!
Thursday: Eagle Point
And Thursday was also WanYing's birthday so it was a day full of celebration and excitement!
|I dearly wish that sassy skiing was an Olympic sport because this girl could definitely make Team Kazakhstan!|
|I can't believe my baby is big enough to ride the lift solo! Fortunately she had a mama in the chair behind her squawking, "pockets to the back, Sash, pockets to the back!"|
|Sash "helps" her sis down the mountain|
|Uh oh! Littles ought to stay in the groom!|
|Big kids, however, love the pow|
|Sasha is skiing so very well - check out those parallel ski tracks behind her through the whole turn!|
|And in celebration of her 5th birthday WanYing completed her first blue square run - way to go little gal!|
Seven major Utah ski resorts visited this year, 5 more to go - do you think we can hit them all? That's the kind of goal I can definitely apply myself to!
