The runners decided upon a "Skiing Trip" this year instead of a hiking trip. We just returned from Copper Mtn, CO where a good time was had by MOST. It seems that altitude issues sidelined one of the husbands invited along.
I started to give you ALL the details of the trip and decided that would send you into a coma. Suffice it to say that we had all level skiers---but EVERYONE enjoyed their trip. I am pretty sure we all have new bruises and bumps, but no permanent life threatening injuries. I actually felt "In Control" MOST of the time and had a sharp improvement of my skills with the help of Sonja and Susan.
One of the best things about traveling is enjoying local cuisine including bison and trout. YUMMY! We cooked a BIG breakfast every morning to get us going and then ate on the slopes for lunch. Supper every night was a rotating trial of the local eateries. Almost as much fun as skiing!
BC commented on the ease of traveling with the group--even with 14 people along. I told him we had all had LOTS of practice and for the most part everyone is pretty laid back about their expectations. We are already talking about our next trip and just where we would like to go. NOW THAT IS A GOOD SIGN!
