Lily Skiing at Sipapu

Randall took a few quick pics of Lily skiing. We can’t wait to go back. We all want to try snowboarding but can’t give up the precious little time we have on the slopes to a new hobby. Someday, for sure.


As you can see, she prefers the snowplow form. She can actually snowplow pretty fast. She still won’t really do any sharp turns. Like last time, she points the skis downhill and goes. If a turn it necessary, it is nice and wide. She loves it out there, though, and would go all day long if we could keep up.


Lily made a friend who skied a few runs with us. She met her on the bunny slope and asked her to come with us on a run. Her mom gave the OK. We got in line on the lift and I asked her if she’d every ridden the life. No? Oh wow, this is going to be fun. We gave her a few probably useless tips. We got on just fine but then at the end, Lily and I jumped off and she hung right on to the seat. I heard a little “uh oh” as I skied down. They stopped the lift just like we’d told her they would do if there was a problem and she got lifted off the seat and carried down. We congratulated her on testing the system. She dismounted fine on the second try. We made several runs and then, at the end of the day, we got to the bottom and she pointed at the ski patrol snowmobile carrying a skier whose arm was in a sling. “Uh oh. That’s my brother,” she said. The medic told the parents it looked like a sprain but it ended the family’s day on the slopes. I love watching Lily make friends so fast. I thought it was going to be a little hard to do that on the ski slope but she showed me.
