We were geared up bright and early to catch the little MooVer shuttle to Mount Snow!
Honey saw the littles and me off to our respective classes and then headed off with “Mr. T”.
I took a first timers class and learned how to put on all the gear, shuffle around on the snow and ALL about french fries and pizza. It was SO incredibly warm and nice out. I loved just people watching and soaking up the sun on my face as much as learning to ski.
I likened this to a Disney theme park but in the snow. There were people everywhere doing all sorts of FUN and amazing things. Laughing, smiling, getting tired, melting down, and just having an incredible time making memories with family and friends.
My lesson ended up being about 3.5 hours long and at about the 2.5 hour mark my instructor let me and and one other take the lift up for the first time and try our way coming down. It was exhilarating and exhausting and I DID IT!!!! When I came crashing down that first time (literally…. I face planted into the snow and the bottom), look who was there to witness it all :-) HAHAHA!
We immediately headed to find food and beverages. And I figured out that second that apres ski is why you ski. :-)
After lunch the big boys headed to who knows where while Stacey and I ventured off on our own.
And, when we reached the bottom, THIS guy showed up.
It was a day full of firsts and smiles and memories. I mentioned yesterday that Honey LOVES skiing but hasn’t been since we got married. My heart could barely take it when our friend Mr. T told us that as they were skiing Honey said “I finally feel like I’m home.” <3
We hit the hot tub as soon as we got back to the house, and now we have lasagna in the oven and full glasses of wine. These are the days <3
