A Spectacular Day

The entire family spent another Sunday at Alta under a perfect blue sky. Charlet hates the cold but fought through today's low temps for the boys. It was 16 degrees when we got on our first chair at 9 am but warmed up nicely as the day went on.

Andrew finished week three with his AYC team. He's skiing so well and enjoying new friends and challenges. His group is together from 9:30 to 3:30 so they access the entire mountain by day's end. I love to hear him talk of the runs they took throughout the day when we take our 3:30 run together. And I laugh when he talks about all the steep runs they'll get to eventually.

Benjamin skied with Charlet and me all day and was terrific. We moved out of the Albion Basin at mid-day and were amazed at how well Benj handled tougher trails off the Sugarloaf and Supreme lifts. These lifts access two of Alta's highest peaks and Benj took on the weather and the pitch like a pro. We were so proud of him - 5 years old and there he was making great turns down blue runs from 10,500 feet.
