Sundance has an afternoon pass you can purchase for two hours, plus a free bunny hill for Eli, so we decided to make the trip. It was TONS of work getting 3 kids on the hill: fitting boots, boots to bindings, helmets, goggles. I mean really, most mornings I can't find my wallet and keys together, How can we keep track of ski gear for 5?!
Got to the slopes, Heather told me to pack the size 8 for her. One pair of boots said 7.5 on the outside, so I grabbed the other pair. Turns out I grabbed the wrong pair. Sundance really gets you if you forget stuff:)
The "free" tow at Sundance is up a steep slope to the right of the lift. I carried my gear and Isaac's, Heather carried hers and Eli's, and we were EXHAUSTED by the time we got there....
But all of this work paid off for me. I really enjoyed the slow ride up the mountain with Drew and Isaac. Isaac acts like he's 14, even though he has the body of a 5 year-old. Listening to Drew and Isaac makes me chuckle, it also makes me think Isaac controls the relationship. Well maybe I control the relationship. Drew wanted to go down some steep looking slopes, but I told him "no, we have Isaac". BTW Isaac does not really turn to slow down, he just snow plows harder and wider:) Drew did talk me into going into some "fun" looking trees. After I was in there I immediately felt stupid for succumbing to my boys' pressure. At the end was a little jump, but I'd already lost control and smashed my head into the jump. I'm sure if I hadn't been wearing a helmet I would have been in the emergency room. I'm too old to crash like that. I laid there for about 10 minutes. Poor Drew, he was probably embarrassed by his Dad (it was right under the lift). He did go fetch one of my skis for me, he's a sweet boy!
Isaac and his cat after a day on the slopes (this cat for sale by the way, so we can buy a bed for Isaac:)
