Ski Trip 2013

Another awesome vacation has come and gone! 

Went to Big Bear and Snow Summit for a few days.  Lovely fresh snow and a gorgeous town to enjoy.  The cabin was a ton of fun.  What beats hot tubbin in the snow?

The Starnes family loves to ski.  
 

The Starnes kids do not yet understand the meaning of staying dry, however.


Carter loves clam chowder.


This little monkey is a fantastic skier.  This was definitely her year to advance to the next level.  Both littles took a lesson on Saturday.  


Hanging out between runs is just as fun as the skiing sometimes.



Beautiful Big Bear Lake, California.


This is what it looks like when my 12 year old helps me after a wipe out.


Bear Mountain is much hipper than Snow Summit. DJs in the snow, tons of ramps and jumps.  All around snowboarding thug life in full effect.






We pack mostly our own food, but the fresh cooked burgers always get us.





Carter is awesome, of course.



Mama skis and bitty skis.




Girls only ski!






Jack preferred sledding on his board instead of riding. All in good time.


Carter with his new board......and new stickers, of course.  The stickers are really the most important part of snowboarding.


Might be the last year these bitty ski boots are used.  :(  We'll save them for Britney or Brad's crew when they visit.



Awesome trip!  We had a blast.

And, now, we await Caroline arriving this afternoon.  

So excited!  More to come on her visit.

So fun!! Can't wait until we can do the same!
I actually bought a new ski coat last week. It was half off. It's hot pink and green. OF COURSE, right??!! LOL!
So, do you not use poles to ski??! BTW - I can't believe how grown up Carter is. Crazy....... I'm following him on Instagram. It's fun to watch :)

So jealous. I want to ski so bad right now.

The mountain map looks so little compared to Colorado skiing.

That looked like a lot of fun(even though I'm not a skier). And I've always wanted to hot tub in the snow. ;-)
