    Default The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

    Thrilled to have just arrived in CO for our first ski trip of the winter! Got season passes so we plan to come back a lot. This trip we are also taking nordic skate ski lessons.

    I made my husband take my photo after picking up our passes I was so excited. Tomorrow we will hit the slopes!

    Thanks sleeve, everything is fun now. Well maybe the retirement helps too.

    Oh, you're going to love the Nordic skiing -- although maybe you already were doing that and are just taking lessons. Either way, it's a great workout!

    No, we are total Nordic skiing newbies. I just hope I don't hurt anything. (Am I thinking like an old person?!?) But I've been downhill skiing since my dad used to take me to a local park in Milwaukee with a tow rope, starting when I was 5 years old.

    sraebaer, you look wonderful! You're not too old for anything you can/want to do, take it from me I feel so much younger now than when I was really chronically younger and I'm taking advantage of each lovely moment. I haven't retired yet, but hopefully when I do; I'll find some new and exciting activities but not skiing as I can't tolerate the cold with my Raynauds'. I hope you have a wonderful time and continued joy!

    Had a great trip! Downhill skied 5 days, tried nordic skate skiing one day (pretty much sucked at that), and snowshoed 2 days, yesterday in Rocky Mountain National Park. I am ready to move.

    First time I ever snowshoed, it was so much fun. You all know how much I love hiking, this was a better workout and so beautiful!
