Ski Weekend! (more pictures)
<----View of ski lift out our window!
This weekend, Toni and I had a very rare chance to get out of town for the weekend! Now that he's officially done with poker, he has weekends off for the first time since we met! His friend Rick, from Montana, was in the state (the other side, but still, Colorado!) for a skiing/family reunion at Powderhorn Ski resort. That's by Grand Junction....about 5 hours and 8 ski resorts away, but we had a great time!
The down side: for the first time in weeks, it was actually WARM and sunny in my neck of the woods....we are talking 50 degrees! Of course, we crossed the continental divide and into a snowstorm and windy day, but a good time was still had by all.
It is not easy to take pictures while skiing. But, we stayed in Rick's timeshare condo, which literally looks right out at the ski runs and lift ! And we all had some post-skiing beverages after a day on the slopes. Toni got ambushed by his friends as we came back from the ski lodge bar...I got out of the way and took pictures! A good time was had by all!
On a related note, the day after my first day skiing this season, I had a fencing class. Tired legs!
