Aspen Mountain and Snowmass

Bob and I spent back-to-back days on the mountains and I will be the first to admit I am NOT in snowboarding shape!  I was SO sore and am finally feeling better!

Bob is such a faster skier than I am on my snowboard, and after a little frustration the first day we figured out a perfect solution!  The long chairlift had a ‘pit-stop’ about two-thirds of the way up, so I would get off, Bob would continue all the way up to the top of the mountain and then we would meet at the bottom.

Bob kept the camera in his pocket because I tend to fall every once in awhile (or more often if I will admit it) and I didn’t want to break it!

We got one of the workers to snap a few pictures for us!

The best part was that I was able to rest a little bit in between runs while I was waiting for Bob…and get some time to soak in the surroundings!

This was a rare sight on the chairlift…as usually we were ducked down and had our face covered since it was cold out!

Bob is such a great skier….he puts me to shame and I wish I could keep up with him!

When we were at Snowmass, it started snowing and eventually Aspen would get almost a foot of snow but we just caught the beginning on the hill.

When we were at Aspen Mountain, one of the workers had a grill at the top of the mountain and was grilling free hot dogs for lunch!  Honestly, the best hot dog I have ever eaten!

Snowmass had a LONG run that just about killed my legs every time…but once they stopped burning I wanted to do it again and again!
