Fun in the Snow

We spent this morning up at Timberline skiing. The weather was pretty bad with lots of snow falling and wind. The kidlets persevered though. I was proud of them.

The snow was a heavy powder, very hard to turn in. We all took tumbles. Though when I fell, they kept going and were soon out of sight. I didn't like that at all, especially with Finn dashing into the trees and taking jumps. I had to put an end to that. All I could think was tree wells! Those can be very dangerous. I promised him once it was more spring skiing conditions he could do tree ski, but there was just too much deep powder right now!

By lunchtime, everyone was hungry. We ate in the lodge, warmed up with hot chocolate and with a unanimous vote decided not to go back out. The weather had worsened by then. So we packed up our cooler, gathered our things and headed to the minivan.

Chaos accompanied us to Mt. Hood. She also got to have fun with a long walk where she had a blast playing in the deep snow. She was up to her chest and bounding through it. She couldn't get enough of it! I'm sure she can't wait until we go again. If the weather takes a turn for the better, that'll be tomorrow!

How's the weather where you are?

The weather was sorta nice today. We reached 60. The clouds and drizzly sky weren't the best, though the kids didn't seem to mind. *g*
Glad you and the kids had a good time skiing today! And Chaos sounds like she had a good time, too!

The weather would have been nicer if not for the strong winds.

I'm glad you had a good time skiing. I hope you're able to do more today.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Our weather is up and down - sun one minute, dusting of snow, and then rain but all in all it's beginning to get warmer.

Sounds like a great outing!

Our weather changes on a daily basis. I wish it would stick with sunshine for more than a day.

It's clear, but kind of chilly.
