Ski Emma!

Emma got her shot at skiing today and picked it up right away. She showed great control, easily turning both right and left. A little more practice and she'll be able to stop too. She lasted about two hours before she tired of gravity's relentless attempts to stop our fun. Besides some awesome skiing, we also saw a Bald Eagle in the canyon; it was quite impressive.

Ski Abbie!

I took Abbie Skiing today and it turns out she's a natural. Just point the skis down hill and go. If only the stopping part were so easy... Anyway, she lasted two whole hours on the mountain before enough was enough. In the end I think I was more tired than she from trying to be right in place to prevent a few of the falls. We had a great time together - it makes me wonder why I don't get around to doing more fun things more often.
