This year there was no snow, except for the man-made stuff for skiing and snowboarding.

We took a nice hike one day while were there and another day I took Drew snowboarding with my brother and nephew. It was his first time and he had a blast! I didn’t even realize how long it had been since I had been on skis! My last time was 17 years ago and this was only my third time ever! But it’s like riding a bike, once you learn, you always remember how to do it. I can’t wait to go back next year.

Tommy took Jake and my niece zip lining. They had a great time as well. I’ll have to do that at some point too!

Even with a tiny bit of snow, the view of the lake was gorgeous!

Each night we watched the Winter Olympics and cheered on the USA athletes. It was so fun for Drew to snow board since he was watching the amazing talent of the Olympians each day.
