Everyone was racing their hearts out over the weekend but due to poor training, poor health, a poor work schedule, and a very healthy and happy desire to be home with my wife and two awesome kids over the weekend, I stayed home.
I didn't need to travel to find out that my regular training partners (Tom and Jason) would have left me in their cold powder dust.
This is what I did instead (scroll down to skip to the skiing pics)...

|A nice evening hike with cotton sock mittens started out well...|
|...but became a sad affair once his hands got too cold. Thanks for all the suggestions on Facebook etc.|
|He still had a good time though (Big Lars in the background)|
|Almost big enough to really put him to work|
|Still managed a beautiful tour with Jake, who didn't let all that heavy crap on his feet slow him down...too much.|

|The last little bit|
|Stunning light, stunning day|
|At first the skiing didn't look too encouraging with more rocks than snow.|
|But it turned out to be fantastic!|
