Our last day up at Big White and we reluctantly packed the car and checked out of our condo, but we were not leaving the mountain. Not when the day dawned sunny and bright. The best of spring skiing.
Since Sunday was the children’s day, Monday was going to be the challenge the mountain in full force day!
So we put our youngest two into the Big White day care for the day,
Put Ever into a two hour lesson,
Got our kit on,
And hit the serious slopes.
Kerstie and I went up to the top together.
Up where the beautiful snow ghost trees were. Up into the powder.
And we took one of the more challenging runs down.
And then we did it again!
The runs from the top down took about 30 minutes each and soon Ever was finished with her lesson, and it was lunch time, so we took a little break.
A small hot chocolate and that hit of sugar was so good!
Then we took turns skiing with Ever and hitting the more challenging runs.
I snapped this selfie with the little Binky on the chair after one of our runs.
Turns out this is may be my most favourite photo of the weekend. I loved skiing with her so much.
And then, after everyone’s thighs were burning and feeling like jelly, I took one more chair to the top by myself.
Chose a challenging run,
Looked around one more time,
And headed down.
