Crested Butte Vacation Day 3 and 4

Saturday was our first full day of skiing!  Brian was back and forth deciding if he wanted to ski or snowboard and at the last minute he decided he wanted to try snowboarding.  We all got bundled up and headed to the lifts around 9 and Brian hung out until his all day snowboard lesson started at 10.

As with every year, I started out on the green slopes to get reacclimated to the mountain and skiing in general.  After a couple of runs, I was off to the blues.

Here is a picture that really shows the lack of snow and just how much man made snow was made.  It was so weird to see this!  But surprisingly, the snow conditions were really good!  Mad props to the snow making crew for making great snow conditions!

We came off the slopes at four and went straight for the hot tub when we got back to the house!

Most evenings were spent playing, Mario Kart, card games and trying to stay awake until atleast 9:30pm!

On Sunday, we went to church in town and then made it to slopes by around 10:15am.  Today, Brian was able to tag along with us skiiers, or I guess you could say we tagged along with him.  Either way, we were all interested to see how he was doing with this snowboard skills.

And hey, props to him for trying something different!  He looked pretty good out there and even did some easy blue runs with us.  At the end of the day though, he said he was pretty sore all over.

Forcast for Monday....SNOW
