A day at the slopes

Trevor and Nolan went skiing and riding today.
The weather was not the greatest... warm but windy and on and off rain.  There were peaks of sun and flurries of snow.  Almost every type of weather was experienced on the mountain today.
The weather did not slow the boys down.  They had a blast and can't wait to go back.
Trevor spent the day in a private {thanks to a quiet day on the mountain} snowboarding lesson.  He had the same instructor as last year and really liked her.  He did a great job and has improved a lot since last year.  It is only a matter of time before he is doing tricks :).
Nolan was in a lesson with one other boy.  His coach was great.  He thought Nolan skied like a hockey player and enjoyed watching him.  He was having him do hockey stops.  I was told that Nolan is an aggressive skier {big surprise, NOT}.  His coach tried to teach him to slow down.  Nolan spent a good portion of the day skiing backwards.  He thought that was great fun.
It was another great day at the slopes.  I can't wait to take them again soon {and maybe I will ski, too}.
