Christmas Day Ski Outing

This Christmas was a little different since we weren’t in Mi or Wa, so we took advantage of the nice day and made it up to Berthoud Pass in the afternoon for a couple ski runs. Maddy was super excited to come with us and couldn’t stop herself from constantly rolling in the snow. By the end of the day, she had a beard full of ice. Well, there wasn’t quite as much snow up there as I was hoping for, but we did manage to find a few powder pockets. The sun managed to break out of the clouds, and it was calm out but very brisk. Our last run brought the excitement when the back heal piece of my binding broke. That made for an interesting ski down as we were pretty far up, broken up with lots of random falls since there was no way to snap in to the binding. Overall, it was a fun time and we caught a ride back up in the back bed of a truck. I’m still happy since Black Diamond is replacing the binding for free even though it isn’t under warranty. We definately missed spending Christmas with our family this year, but at least we were able to get up to the mountains to enjor the fresh snow

    Looks pretty, but cold. I’ll go for cross country skiing! We certainly missed you, but these times are also special for just the two of you. Treasure them! Love,
    Mom
