Spring Break 2010: Day 5 & 6

The boys ended up wanting to do another day of ski school. Actually Adam did, and Zach SAID he did, but then this morning, said he didn't want to. We told him it was just one more day, and then we could all ski together. He seemed a little sad when I dropped him off. Since Adam moved up a level, they were not in the same class, and I think that had something to do with it. And the fact that Adam moved up and he didn't.

Another beautiful day. I think it reached 58 degrees. Scott and I skied a different mountain this time. Beaver Creek is made up of three mountains. This trail map shows how big the ski area is.
When we picked the boys up at 3:00 p.m., Zach was so excited because he could stop on his own and got to ski down the training runs a couple of times. Adam wanted to ski some more, so he and Scott skied down a few times, while Zach and I rode the Buckaroo Gondola.

Olympians in training for Winter Olympics 2022.
Wow! What a difference a day makes. All four of us skied together and the boys did great.Temps in the high 50s again with plenty of sunshine.

We rode the Gondola and skied down several times. Then headed to the two person chairlift. I rode the lift with Adam, who told me the "rules" of the chairlift. (Put the tip of your skis on the red line. Then follow the chair in front of you until you reach the blue line. Then squat down and wait for the chair. Lower the bar when you get to the yellow sign. Make sure you hold onto everything.)

I took this picture of Zach below on our ride up.
We ate lunch (burgers and chicken nuggets) and then decided to try the quad chair lift that goes halfway up the mountain. Here we are on the Centennial lift.
And all of us at the top of the chairlift.
We skied all greens ("Cinch" run on the map). We did accidentally go on a blue, which was quite exciting. But we all made it down in one piece. We rode up the Centennial lift three times, and skied down. The boys even went through some easy paths through the trees.

The video below shows Zach in the light colored coat, and soon you'll see Adam zoom through the trees. Adam is wearing a red coat. If you can't see the video, it's on my facebook page.
