Snowman Building

Cole and Grayson were mostly content to watch dad and me build a snowman.  The milder temperature has packed the snow down, making it decent enough to form the necessary shapes.  We gathered this, that, and the other laying around the outside of the house to complete our masterpiece....

The finished product looked, maybe, a bit like myself except with shorter hair....
Joel and I went skiing for a few hours in the morning.  It snowed about 10cm which was good enough to fill in the holes and keep everyones spirits high.  The visibility wasn't that great today.....

The main ski lift chair called Motherload, was only running at 1/2 to 3/4 of its usual speed.  There wasn't really any line ups, but they were long rides up.  There was also a strong north wind today which kept me shielding my cheeks and reminding me of the fable called The North Wind and the Sun. (Moral = Kindness effects more than severity.)

The freeski competition was in its peliminary rounds.  The guys and gals were skiing a route called Lynx Line.  I didn't see any backflips, but there was lots of cliff jumping and speed - neither of which I am too adept at.  The chair lift goes directly overtop of this route and it was neat to see.  The finals are on Saturday, I believe.
