There are few things that bring me more joy than skiing with my little family and this year, we hit a new milestone: we all rode to the top of McConkey’s together and took in the breathtaking views. Another favorite memory was purchasing eight bead necklaces from the Dollar Store prior to our trip and we were excited to throw them into the trees from the ski lift. The problem: My six-year-old lost two of them before we even left the condo. We also hadn't calculated the exact moment we would need to toss them, taking into account the velocity of the chair lift, the angle of the trees and our sheer incompetence. Translation: Only two ended up in the trees but we were laughing all the way. We'll take a physics lesson before our attempts next year.

Children have a way of holding a mirror up to ourselves.  Sometimes we don't particularly care for what we see, other times we are amazed by the best of what we may see in ourselves.  The unquestioned highlight for me this year was staring down at the abyss known as Blueslip Bowl with my two daughters Hannah and Megan, and watching them confidently ski their first double black run.  Their sense of accomplishment was mine as well.

Favorite moments this season:

  • 1. Becoming a Snowmama!  It truly is an honor to be included in this group and to be an ambassador for PCMR and the ski industry.
  • 2. My daughter Ivy skiing on her own!  Good bye harness, burning thighs and sore lower back... Hello to freedom and sharing my love for skiing with my kids!
  • 3. Skiing with my family, including grandparents and uncle.  Three generations on the slopes.
  • 4. The days I shared with dear friends skiing powder or corduroy.
  • 5. Honestly... Any day on skis is a great day!

You have got to understand, this has been over 30 years in the making, a dream I thought would never be actually realized. Day 3 of our family ski trip,  Danny and I got on the lift together with our son Charlie and his wife Angie (Baby Zac has not made his skiing debut, yet). I looked ahead to the chair just in front of us, there was our son Joe, daughter Molly, grand-kids, Brock, Emma, Kayla and their dad Sean. My heart was happy. We all were together on the slopes. . . .a little showing off,  laughing, talking and having a blast, and Grandpa Dan was there witnessing the whole thing first-hand! Yes, this was my favorite mountain moment. More are sure to come!

Our family's favorite mountain moment this year occurred the first week of April during our Spring Break. Our oldest son, Isaac, participated in Park City Mountain Resort's I Ride Park City Freestyle Camp. He was CRAZY about it. Afterwards, Isaac took his Dad, uncle, and younger siblings, Lucas and Ariel, to the Neffland Terrain Park to teach them a few of the things he learned. They all enjoyed having Isaac show them how to use the park and the snow condition was ideal. You know it was a success when, returning home, the whole family is excitedly talking over each other, describing their awesome experience.   

Check back tomorrow for more favorite moments from the rest of the Snowmamas team!
