Local's Version of a Sick Day

After a very busy and stressful week of trade show work, my boss volunteered to treat interested members of the team and spouses to a ski day at Snowbird. Cole and I have season passes there this year, so gratefully this beginner was on her home turf.

As you can see from above, I had to work hard to keep up with the more experienced veterans, but boy, was it a fun day.

Below is a picture of my co-worker, Liz. She started the day on this pair of skis that her parents had picked up at a rummage sale many moons ago. They served her well until after lunch when she went to clip in, we all heard an ominous snap...needless to say, they had skied their last run. We left them in the snow where we knew they would have wanted to remain.

Never fear though, Liz did get seriously hooked up with a pair of demo skis (pictured below).

Thanks, guys. We all deserved this local's version of a sick day...

I have never skied. I went with my family when I was about 5 but I never went down the slope. I was so terrified. Do you know what the slopes look like to a 5 year old?

I'm loving this cute Valentine's scrapbook theme you have going on! Especially the black and white paisley hearts!
