After 1 month of frenzied packing, 8 days, 2400 miles in 1 car and a moving truck with 2 dogs,, through 3 whiteouts we arrived in Coeur d'Alene on 12/3. Getting minimally moved in in our wiped out state took a while so we didn't ski Silver Mtn until 12/25. That was actually a great Christmas gift since we had not skied in 2 1/2 years and I had never skied on my hip replacement. The gift was the skiing and that the hip was no problem. It will take more ski days to get our legs under us. Then we hope to take Pete's offer to tour Silver Mtn. Since we have season passes there our plan this season is to learn that mountain really well and probably try Schweitzer, Mt. Spokane and Lookout at least once. We made it simple the 1st day and skied only on Kellog Peak. That created more questions than it answered. First, can you ever ski to the bottom???? We'll ask other questions later. Thanks for your help and support.
