The next morning we woke up bright and early. Phone Guy cooked us scrambled eggs, which was more than a certain Chatty Housewife would have done on such a morning. Usually a quick bowl of cereal is gobbled down, snow clothes and equipment are grabbed and we are out the door. We were all looking forward to the snow, as Mt. Baker had just that week set new local snowfall records. As you can see from the photographs, it was a beautiful clear day. The temperature was perfect for nice smooth boarding, the lift lines were short and no one forgot anything crucial behind. (I am thinking back to the time I forgot my snow pants - thanks for lending me yours Dad! You must have been frigid.)
Phone Guy, Princess, Sallad and Grace met us for lunch at noon and the lodge was a zoo! I think in the future we will try and plan lunch closer to 1 o'clock. After lunch, Grace and I spent a little time together. It was only her second time snowboarding and she was doing terrific. I was quite impressed that she was able to start carving - something it took me a whole ski season to learn over in good ol' Saskatchewan. (Check it out - they got their first real lift!) Overall, it was a beautiful day, everyone had a lot of fun and thankfully no one got hurt.
