a trip to snowshoe

As it basically feels like late spring here in North Carolina, I figured I should probably post some of our ski photos from Snowshoe from several weeks back.

The first night that we arrived there was no snow anywhere on the roads or sidewalks.  For a ski village, one would expect (as from the last 10 years coming here) that there would be snow!  But we arrived in the nick of time as a winter weather advisory was in effect overnight.

Our first day of skiing there was hardly anyone out on the slopes.  It was extremely cold, windy and in the afternoon turned to white out conditions.  It was super fun, but definitely cold!

Break for lunch....

Than into whiteout conditions!

Day #2 started with blue sunny skies!  Joe's family arrived the night prior.  The kids went to ski school and the big kids well we were all over the place and none of us really skied together.  Joe was skiing with his Dad.  I was sent to find the other big kids, didn't find them and ended up skiing the entire morning alone.  Which it was kind of nice just to go do my own thing, but it would have been nice to ski with others as well.  With such a big mountain, it happens!

Joe (skiing backwards - show-off!) and his Dad (grey jacket) before he fractured his pelvis {enter sad face}.

I found the boys for lunch and then off we went again!  Excuse the mitten.

Day #3
