It's been a wild few days on our ski trip. The resort we're skiing at received their 24 hour historical record of snow (34") & 7" in an hour! On NYE, we were there for three hours before they closed, and we had to shovel the car out, as it had snowed 9" during that time.
We made it back to the condo we were staying at, but only after a super dicey drive. We made the decision to move to the ski in/out hotel earlier than planned, because more snow was expected, and the drive was super dangerous & long from the condo. We woke up on the morning of the 1st, and the car was absolutely buried in snow. We couldn't get into the condo parking lot (too much snow, unplowed), so we carried all of our gear out & up a hill 1/4 of a mile. I've had more fun. ;-) But, we all worked together to get the car dug out, and the gear packed up. Switching from the condo to the hotel was pricey (we forfeited the night in the condo, and paid for an extra night at the hotel), but we have no regrets, as even more snow fell. It's been so nice to be at the hotel & not worry about driving.
It's snowing again today, and expected to snow through our departure tomorrow. I'm at the hotel catching up on a bit of work today, but will likely join the boys for a few runs this afternoon, if the weather cooperates & the lift outside of our hotel continues to stay open. Despite all of the craziness, we've had so much fun together!
The end of my favorite run (I don't take photos on the run, but the entire thing is stunning):
We drive home tomorrow, and I'll be back to regularly posting & commenting then. Hope everyone is staying warm & safe!
