Check Out My Awesome Jump!

Ok, it's less than spectacular, but not too bad for my second try!

Here's us playing in the powder as well!

Looks like fun.

Can't wait to learn myself when the kids get a little older and I have time

It should be easy enough right? I mean we live 1/2 mile from the "neighborhood" slopes.

The snow has been melting though with the warm (for us this time of year) weather lately.

More snow expected this week.

We may have to make a go of it.

Yeah, you might as well! Make a family event out of it! I see that a lot at some resorts. It's really quite adorable to see the tiny ones on boards and skis!

I think I would be sitting in the snow more than I would be riding on it .

On the other hand, I've never tried, so I suppose I should check it out !

That's some gorgeous powder. Looks like about 12 to 18" deep down to the packed section. You guys are going to miss the snow when you're in Costa Rica.

Ha! Some of those kiddies are fearless! Either that, or they don't know how to slow down.

Isn't it fantastic?

Yes, we will miss it tremendously. That is why we plan to come down for a few months in the winter.
