We're back - and Maggie is presently soaking in the bathtub.

We did laps on Phillips Run and Fawn Lane, and she did fanTAStic! She even wanted to take a couple runs through the Arctic Blast kiddie park!

She has great control in pizza mode and was picking up some decent speed as her comfort level increased. ( This is her 2nd ever day on skis)

We were there for over 5 hours (with two breaks), and the only reason we quit was because it was getting cold and dark.

Whisper.... I think she's hooked.... Shhhhhh.

Pix to follow....

The photo of her in the lodge is so sweet - it just warms my heart.

However, the real test of a kid "being hooked" is when they are freezing and wet and still don't want to quit. I give her no more than another 2 days with you to get to that point.

YOT

Well she did impress me with this performance: At one point I skied down about 100 yards ahead of her so I could get her picture - but she fell and lost a ski. But before I could work my way back up to her to help, she had gotten up, found her ski, gotten it back on and was on her way back down to me. She didn't even blink. I figure if she really didn't want to be there and was doing it all for ME, she'd have sat in the snow and waited for me to "help" her get herself back together.

Toward 5:30-6:00 pm when the sun was down and the temps were dropping, the conditions changed dramatically. The slush and stuff had turned to ice with random piles of sand/sugar. Down toward the lodge there were teenagers wiping out all over the place as they picked up speed on the ice and then plowed into the sugar. But Maggie handled the transitions with much aplomb.

She's a trooper and I'm very proud of her.

Great to hear Frau and looking at the pics I think your "winter activities budget" has just increased significantly
