last year) so he signed up for the day long ski lesson with our friends J and Iv and I headed out on my own to ski on the mountain solo. I got in some great runs - 1 short just to make sure I still had my "ski legs" and then 3 wonderful long runs - and then took a lunch break to check into our condo and unpack our luggage from the car. The condo was pretty incredible (you can see it here) and if we decide to ski at Winter Park again in the future we'd definitely look into renting the same place again. After lunch I took another long run on the mountain and then met up with S, J, and Iv, who had finished their lesson, for a couple of short runs. The combination of the late night flight, early morning wake up, long morning drive, and a full day of skiing left all of us completely exhausted. So we packed up, hit up the grocery store, and went back to the condo for the rest of the night to eat, relax in the hot tub (soooooo good), S and I gave eachother our post-ski foot massages, and play some card games before we all passed out.
Mary Jane's Birthday, so we got to see some fireworks too! K had driven into the mountains to join us for the night, so we all had some fantastic conversation with our food. We took it back to the condo for more hot toddies and drinks (everyone's new favorite is a Dr. Peppermint) plus some card games afterwards. It was a fun night!
