At times we skied with the kids, at times they took off on their own for a bit.
This year was a huge turning point for Chris--he improved in leaps and bounds! He was able to keep up with his big brothers on any blue, and even tried out a few black runs. In fact, he went on a black run called Lucky Bill that I would not go on! Our ski time is slowly coming full circle--for the first several years Pete and I skied alone while all the kids were in ski school. Then they got good enough to ski with us. One by one they are now each passing us in ability. For sure Zach and Vinny are better than Pete and I now. I think Joey is pretty close as well. After watching Chris ski this year he is very close behind. Very soon Pete and I will once again be skiing alone because the kids will all leave us behind for the bowls (you will never catch me on any run with the name bowl in the title. Ever!!)
A couple of days we got dumped on, making for fantastic snow to ski on. Take that Tahoe!
