Once again it was a 5:30am wake up to get to the ski fields by 9am. Today we were heading up to Winter Park. We had hired a place not far from the ski field for a few nights so that we don't have to commute so far. We were then heading off on a road trip for about 10 days after that. This meant that we would be away from Wesley's house for about two weeks. So we packed the car, and drove a bit over 2 hours to Winter Park. It was a bit cloudier today, and also a little cooler.
Winter Park feels much bigger than Copper mountain. I think this is because the resort is so spaced out. There is so much terrain, and all so different. We managed to find a nice run out of the way from most of the crowds. It was a nice steep run, with some deep pockets of fresh snow. We had another great day, and it even began to snow a little at the end of the day. We then went a checked in to our little studio apartment in a condo complex type thing. It was a really nice cabin style place, with plenty of room for the three of us. We shopped for the next few days, and made a nice pesto pasta for dinner. We are planning on skiing the next few days until Christmas Eve, and the forecast is looking like we could get a nice dump of fresh snow tomorrow and Friday! Exciting times ahead!! :)
