Vermont (4)

Our friend in Vermont has been begging us to visit for years, so what better time than in the winter, and while we're up in the area?

Snow-shoeing in the moonlight.  This pic is of them standing on a frozen pond.
 On Thursday we're ready to hit the slopes.  So on to Sugarbush.  C took snowboard lessons for a half day which helped get her started.  Then CK helped her a LOT that afternoon and next morning.  By Friday afternoon, she didn't want any more instruction!!
Taken from the "quad".  Lovely day to ride/ski, on Thursday.

Taking a higher lift on up to the top.

Up here the snow is still thick on the trees.

The lift doesn't go this high - we had to walk this short last stretch - but it was beautifully groomed and we couldn't resist a picture of the pristine surface.

At the top the view was 360'.

Row upon row of Vermont mountains.

A Sugarbear ready to go!

And we're off!

This is fun!

Just a speck in the distance.

Some of the slopes here at Sugarbush.
We rode the slopes Thursday and Friday, and then it was time to head back home. :-(
