for the second year in a row we packed up the family and drove 90 minutes to gorgeous Manning Park for a few days.
ty fully engaged with skiing this year. his lift ticket is still free, and i have access to free tickets as well, so he got out on the slopes 3 days in a row, lasting longer each time.
we were blessed with a few cm of new snow every day.
ty did so awesome on his first chairlift ride ever. a clean exit and not at all scared of the height. he was just wondering at the views of the mtns and skiers and trees all around him.
right outside the resort are a multitude of snowshoe and xc ski trails.
we have a german student kathe staying with us for a few weeks. it was great to take her out and show her around our area, and also great to have another adult along so that kylie and i could get out for time by ourselves.
there was so much snow up there!
if ty's thing was skiing this trip, levi's was tottering along in the snow. he was happy to fall on his face repeatedly and DID NOT want to be picked up.
zeke's thing was def. toboganning. a nice amount of excitement for him. he enjoyed varying the rides from kathe to me to "by mySELF" and was shockingly fastest on his own.
a good time was had by all. playing in the snow all day, pool and hottub in the evening, a home cooked meal and do it all again tomorrow. this is our kind of tradition!
