Ski Utah

Most of the local resorts offer ski schools to kids once they turn four, so this winter we signed James up at Brighton Ski Resort . Chris loves to ski and we were hoping James would as well so Chris would have someone to go with. Most of you know why I will not be joining him on the slopes (hint: it involves broken bones and two knee surgeries).
His first lesson was this past Sunday (yes, I am officially caught up on this blog, woohoo!) and he loved it! It was a cold and very snowy day but he didn’t seem fazed by that at all and said that his favorite part was going “fast” down the hill. The instructors said that he did really well and that he’s super high-energy (neither Chris nor I were surprised to hear that description). Next Sunday, the kids get to take the lift up for the first time, so he is definitely looking forward to that. We are hoping to get some video at the next lesson so we will put that up if we get it. 
Living in Utah means having access to the best powdery snow in the country, so why not take advantage of it?! See Visit Utah and Ski Utah for more information.

Look at him go!
What the day looked like, snowy and gray, but still so lovely.

Totally getting the hang of it!
If I could bend like that, I might not have needed surgery!
