Headed home!

We had a great vacation! Today was probably my best skiing day! All week I kept looking at the top of the mountain and thinking that I could probably ski it, if I could just get up there. I was really afraid because they don’t use normal lifts to get you up there. They use t-bars. I’ve never been on a t-bar and watching everyone go up the mountain on them made it seem really scary.

My first attempt to get on the t-bar was not successful. I watched Mike fall to the ground as he got on, so I was really nervous. I got a little further but somehow I ended up holding the bar with my hands. I could hear the guy that loads us tell Mike I wasn’t going to make it. I was determined to hold on until I saw how far I would have to hang on, so I let loose and had to ski back down and try again. Mike saw me and got off and we rode up there together.

I was right! I had no problem skiing down this run even though it was a black. Mike had no problem either, until he got to the bottom crossing area. He skied over his pole and ended up in the be careful sign. Luckily, he wasn’t hurt!!

  1. I hate T-bars. I’ve done them though. I’d rather sit and know the chair is going to get me there.

  2. I absolutely LOVE the picture of Mike wiped out, HA HA HA!
