Urban Ski Adventure

Today was the first major snow storm (or really first snow storm in general) this year. The gym was closed which meant snow day for me and Angus didn’t go to work either. Spent the morning eating pancakes and lounging around before heading out on this awesome snow day ski adventure. I have never skied downtown during a snow storm so today seemed like the perfect day to make a big loop. We were hoping that a bar might be open that we could stop in but EVERYTHING was closed. I think Subway was open but that was it.

Here’s a map of the route:

The first stop was at my parent’s house to see this adorable pooch. He loves to eat snow so I fed him a bowl of snow before we headed out on our loop.

Exploring the streets of the Old Port. Looking for a bar or somewhere cool to stop. No luck.
