Picaboo Who?

So, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to snow ski. I had never been before and was really nervous about our trip. I knew I was going with people that had all been skiing before. Holly and I had decided that we were going to ski school the first day, but poor thing got the stomach virus the fist night. Needless to say, she couldn't ski with me the first day. So... when ski school was full I sat at the bottom of the mountain and cried. I told Eugene I would just go home and he could ski. But, my VERY PATIENT and WONDERFUL husband took lots of time to teach me. He even let me yell at him when I got frustrated... which was often. Thanks honey! You're the best!

This is the view that we got to see everyday riding down the ski lift. BEAUTIFUL! I am sure some of you are thinking, why would you ride it down... because I wasn't skiing a double black diamond down. That is why!

In case you were wondering, I hated the ski lift and goggles don't make you look cute!

We skied at two different resorts while we were in Lake Tahoe. The first was Heavenly Ski Resort. It was lots of fun and we were able to cross over to the Nevada side of the mountain on Saturday. On Friday we skied at Northstar. This was a very swanky resort. Infact we skied down the mountain and ate lunch in the Ritz Carlton. Then after the day we were able to sit around fire pits and have some drinks. It was very nice!
