Old Powderhorn

On Monday we took a “snow day” from school…to play in the snow!  We drove about 40 minutes away to a small ski resort called Powderhorn,  near Mesa, CO.  The ski resort used to be located about 3 miles further, and is now called “Old Powderhorn.”  They turned the ski slope into a sledding hill! 

We were a little disorganized at the beginning.  In fact, Liberty got set on a saucer, and went flying down the hill.  She hit a giant jump, and went airborne, landing flat on her face.   Ben rushed down the hill and when he got to her she sobbed, “I hurt my face!”

Eventually we got into a “groove”, the kids made a friend, and we all had a wet, freezing time!

Henry spent the first half of the day like this…then he got in a few runs down the hill too in the Ergo.

Daddy somehow managed to tube down with both twins in his lap.  And not crash.  Or fall off.  He’s a super-dad.
