02.11 — Ski Trip 2011


Early morn­ing. Not cold. Van full. All guys. Snowy slopes. Skis rented. Fog rolled in. Ski­ing con­tin­ued. Rain began. Skiers pressed on. Lifts closed. Rentals returned. Pizza Inn buf­fet. Fin­ished the day. Great times.

02.10 — Ski Trip

It was a man’s trip. 8 men descended upon the slopes. We skied, we shred­ded, we flew. It wasn’t always pretty, but we got the job done. Gor­geous day. Great slopes. More snow than they’ve had in 10 years. And we were there to expe­ri­ence all of it. Never to be for­got­ten are the mas­sive Pizza […]

02.08 — Ski Trip 2008

Feb­ru­ary Show­ers? The slopes called. And we answered. The voice on the other line said, “Ski your heart out. No mat­ter what.” And, we did. We pulled out of Oak Ridge too early to imag­ine on Mon­day morn­ing, Feb­ru­ary 4 and made the trek through the hills of ten­nessee into North Car­olina. Sounds of sleep […]

01.07 — Ski Trip

4:40am came early on Jan­u­ary 29! We all sleep­ily piled into 2 vans for a trip up the moun­tain. Rentals were fit­ted, lift tick­ets were stuck, and we all got bun­dled up for a day full of ski­ing. We had a gor­geous day! Not a cloud in the sky and tem­per­a­tures in the 20s. We almost had to put on sun­screen! Every­body did great! A 1 hour les­son in the morn­ing got every­body started and we had a great day shoosh­ing down the slopes together. We all had lunch in the lodge and filled the after­noon with more skiing…most of us did any­way. A few chose to spend the remain­der of the day snug­gled up and warm near the fire. The lifts closed at 4:00 and we were return­ing our rentals and head­ing back down the moun­tain. We hit a stop at McDon­alds or KFC on the ride home, and the trip was done. What a day!
