Ski Weekend

What a week it has been! Last weekend we traveled to Twin Mountain, New Hampshire for a weekend of skiing. Good food, good friends, good skiing. On Friday Angus and I took advantage of Wildcat’s 2 for 1 ticket prices and went for a Valentines Day ski in some fresh powder. And wind. Probably the windiest day I have ever seen on the slopes. After skiing we went out for a romantic pizza dinner at Flatbreads in North Conway complete with tons of screaming (excited for vacation) children running around.

Saturday all of our friends arrived at the house and we went to the Mount Washington Hotel for chocolate skiing. Chocolate skiing is something I’ve done just about every year since high school and it was always amazing! Long ski + stops to enjoy homemade chocolates is probably the best situation I can think of. This year the chocolate ski was organized by someone else and it was LAME. There were hardly any chocolate stops and everything ran out. AND it was more expensive than year’s past. We complained and got our $ back and some free trail passes to come back another time. Squeaky wheel gets the grease!

On Sunday we hit the slopes again but this time at Cannon. It was warmer, not as windy, and a perfect ski day! When we got back to the house we enjoyed some drinks and a delicious feast of soup and grilled cheese.

By Monday my legs were pretty toast but we had those free tickets to go back to the nordic trails at the Mount Washington Hotel. Angus and I went for a fast and chilly skate ski and hit the road to go back home to Portland. After a fabulous four days of skiing I’m now teaching bunches of spin classes this week and MAN do my legs want a break! I would also like a break from commuting in the snow. Snow is great on the trails but not on I95.
