Here’s some random pics from the ski season. All disciplines should be represented… Including our trip to McCall Idaho for a Nordic race. I’m lumping these all together because there’s not an easy way to tell the different events on these. Maybe next year I’ll do better on that…
Kari and I took a full pack of kids in to the Grizzly Ridge yurt for a couple of days. The skiing wasn’t great, but it was certainly a fun trip with all those kids. Everyone packed in their own stuff, some more than others. The track in was totally sketch, and even worse on […]
Even though she’s 8 now Tegan still has cute ways of saying things. She’s getting into cross country skiing this year in a program called Kickers and Gliders. They aren’t learning to skate ski yet, but I’m pretty sure that’s coming!
Kari booked the Lilly Lake yurts for a second trip this winter. Coincided with a visit from Tracy and her boyfriend Matt. The weather was much warmer this time and was a bit harder to get in – the snow had melted from the track in a few places. Very nice trip with great weather. […]
The day after Christmas we headed out to the Lily Lake are of the Uintas for a couple night stay in a yurt!. We stayed a total of two nights – one by ourselves, and the next night the Marsh’s came out for two nights of their own. The weather was pretty amazing, with a […]
Tory said he wanted to ski the terrain park. I didn’t think he’d hit any of the tricks… pardon the poor camera work, I wasn’t prepared to keep up apparently.
High Meadow is the bunny hill at Canyons (still have a hard time not calling it The Canyons) but we’ve been skiing there quite a bit with Tegan. Here’s a video of Tory top to bottom:
Very excited to post this about Tegan skiing on her own for the first time. Top to bottom on High Meadow all by herself. She’ll turn three in a week, but technically, she’s skiing on her own at two. My little girl.
We haven’t got a lot of snow yet this season, but I don’t mind as it gives us all a chance to get our legs back under us riding the groomed runs. Here’s a few pics and videos of this early season.
This image was included in the previous post, but it’s so special to me that it deserves it’s very own post. After we had a lunch and cocoa break I asked Tory where he wanted to ski. He said wanted to try 9990*. I asked him quite a few times if he was sure – […]
Hard to believe it’s April 10 and we’re still getting mid winter quality snow. Even though we’re wishing spring would come, these extra powder days at the end of the season are a great opportunity for Tory to get better and more comfortable in the deeper stuff. Earlier in the year he wouldn’t have been […]
We try to get Tory out 2 to 3 times a week skiing – at least once during the week and the weekends. Saturdays have been the best this winter when he gets to ski with his bud Evan.
On Saturday Kari participated in the annual Wasatch Powderkeg race at Brighton. It’s an uphill/downhill type race in the Wasatch backcountry – 6 miles of climbing and skiing. Babbie and Brad participated as well – everyone was a little tired but had a good time. The kiddos and I were there to watch them finish.
Saturday’s are days when Tory and I get to ski together, and today was a little extra treat, a random encounter with another dad, Gary, and his daughter Ana – a little older, and slightly better skier.
We started out by skiing with Tory between our legs, then graduated to using a harness with tethers, and now he’s moved beyond the tethers and is skiing solo. It’s been fun watching the progressions, and we can hardly wait until the day he can keep up with us. Ok, Tegan, you’re next!
So I know there was a recent post about Tory skiing for the first time – and there’s no doubt that he was on a pair of skis that day, and gravity was doing its thing – but today the little man hit the big time and rode his first chair lift. As you can […]
One of the nicer things about living in Park City is that there are so many people around who love to do the same things we do. And we’re doubly fortunate to have friends like this who also have kids. Pete and Kelley offered to spring for a condo at Powder Mountain last Monday night, […]
Tory gets on a pair of skis for the first time today and ‘rides’ a little powder. Looks like he’s enjoying himself to boot. Ok kid, it only gets better from here.
While not quite as debonair as Puss in Boots, Tory wears his first pair of ski boots. It took a while to get to this point, as we’ve had the boots (and skis) around for a month or so with no sign of him wanting to put them on. But thankfully Auntie Mel has super […]
