Lucky me, I took another bus to the ski slopes in Whitefish, and with four weeks left to the season I sure hope I get to go again! I’m hoping this is a better portrayal of the activity going on there than my last tranquil-looking pictures! And this time I got a lift ticket, complimentary for bus drivers, and rode to the summit, where coffee tasted better than I’ve ever had it. Guessing the temp was a single digit, the ride up was more than cold in a few places where the wind hit the lift full force. Which made the coffee absolutely necessary 🙂 I rode up with a group of very nice Canadian gals.
Ski slopes are good places to people watch. Being a Phoenix girl I never learned to downhill ski, and I really admire the grace, skill, and coordination of some of those skiers. Watching the kids in different stages of training and all the patient parents is a pleasure!
This time the weather, sun wise, was fully cooperative and I made the most of my day. If anyone told me even a year ago I’d be spending the day at Big Mountain waiting for kids I took up in a school bus I never would have believed them!!!
