racing down the blue run

Q gets most improved skier award! On Friday he started off very shaky - holding onto dad's hand and not at all comfortable (we didn't ski last year after all and he'd only skied a couple of days before that). By the end of the 3 days he was zooming down the intermediate slopes and had done a nice job of changing from wedge position skiing to parallel skis. Awesome. Give the kids another day or 2 and they'll be heading down slopes I won't want to do - they are already faster than I am. At least they have a dad who can ski.

this is the view from the parking area at Bear Valley. A front was moving through which led to some drama in the sky at the end of the skiing day. Such lovely grandeur in the Sierras.

We just had a few minutes at the sno-park but our friends had had a couple of hours. Just enough time for a good old fashioned snow ball fight! It was late in the afternoon so shooting conditions weren't great but I caught a few in mid-disintegration.
