We finally got some snow as Winter showed it's true colors with a bona-fide snowstorm.
We drove to Eagle Point Resort for its first day open after the fresh snow.
A caravan of 3 carloads from the neighborhood left early in the morning on Thursday...for fresh powder you can miss one day of school. We packed a lunch and hit the resort with a bargain at $30 a lift ticket.
What a beautiful day! There was not a cloud to be seen and the sky hadhad never looked so blue.
This was Adrie ' s first time ever on the slopes. For the rest of us , it was just like riding a bike.
Adrie was a natural! Her friend fell and we had to call ski patrol to get her down the mountain. Luckily, it was just a minor knee strain. They strapped her onto a sled and a snowmobile whisked her to safety. She spent the rest of the day resting in an urt. We joined her there for lunch and hot chocolate. The employees were so nice. We love coming to this resort.
We returned home sunburned and exhausted. I had to put in a couple hours work at the clinic and then go straight to symphony rehearsal. But, we sure enjoyed our first and probably last ski day for this year.
