It's January. It's Utah. It's snowing. It must be time for the annual Staycation!

We hit upon the idea a few years ago while on an out-of-state ski vacation. The logic went like this: Utah is awesome. Utah has awesome snow. Utah is, you know, in our backyard. And there are a ton of awesome resorts in Utah and we never have time to visit them all - so why not just vacation in Utah?!?

So far, we've done staycations at PowMow, Brian Head and Eagle Point, and Park City. So this year we headed to Solitude and Brighton!

It was a beautiful weekend - great skiing, great family, great snow. And, of course, we spent the whole weekend chasing our little rippers down all the black diamonds. We have some hard core little skiers!

We spent Saturday and Sunday skiing at Brighton because Sasha was racing in her first big race of the year! She felt great about her skiing and she looked darn snazzy in her race suit so, yeah, it was a super successful race.

Like father...

...like daughter

We stayed in the Solitude Village, which meant there was snow, pizza, a heated pool, and ice skating right outside our front door. We were made for ski in ski out living.

This is the proud face of a boy who just wore his daddy's heads up display goggles and hit a 56 mph top speed. No children or bystanders were harmed.

I think mountain life agrees with us. If anybody has a ski condo or home that they're bored with and want to give us, we are currently entertaining offers.
