Pigtails on Powder

Pigtails and Curls joined me for a quick trip to the local ski lodge.  40 degrees in January, and daughter's building confidence to tackle the longer runs.  Once she dials in sharper turns, we'll be ready to slide down some real mountains next year. 



Halfway through the day, I traded in my skis for a board.  Virgin run on a snowboard, a couple butt-smacks on the hardpack and I was ready to limp inside for coffee and a donut cushion.  I'll try again next time, but skiing is cake compared to boarding.

    Hey Beard, where's the footage of you snowboarding (aka, butt-smacking) down the hills? :)
