Breckenridge, Part 1

April 10, 2007 at 7:22 pm 2 comments

So far, so good. Jason skied his first black diamond run today, and he didn’t even break anything! (he’s actually much better than I envisioned, although he still wasn’t too thrilled about the black diamond).

Trevor wins the most enthusiastic award for the trip – he’s been up at about 7am everyday, and wakes everyone up asking if they’re going skiing (PS lifts don’t open until 9). Yesterday, my dad, Robby, Trevor and I went up to the top of the mountain (double black diamond run!) and skied in powder… it’s been snowing a bunch here. The only problem is that Trevor isn’t quite heavy enough to power through the powder, so you just see him stop and tip over. It’s hillarious.

Today, everyone but Robby and Ashley went out (Ash left today) and boy, it was cold. Check out the pictures of us covered in frost and snow – the wind was howling. We didn’t ski for too long, even though Trevor kept saying, “two more runs.” Jason’s getting better on every run, and soon, maybe he’ll be ready for the double black diamonds at the top. (we’ve promised him a black diamond t-shirt for today’s performance).

Here are some pictures to keep you busy until I get home and have regular internet access again. (the first bunch of pics are from our 3-hour layover in Minneapolis, and the rest are from CO).

    Should you really be jamming the internet waves with all those pictures???

    Jason was a superstar out there, especially on Thursday when he lasted the entire day and nobody was nice enough to wait for him anymore! Did I mention how much he improved over the week? Jason wins MOST IMPROVED award and Trevor wins for MOST ENERGY. Now Robby wants an award….what could that be? Meh?
