Taos 2017

In the interest of raising kids to be good skiers in this ski-loving family, we stuck in a second trip to the slopes during the downhill snow season.
What was once billed as a "dude weekend" with Rick and Palmer, quickly turned into Grace's first time on the mountain when I interjected that the gals were indeed coming along!
Upon arrival, we learned that the lifts were shut down due to high winds.  Palmer and Grace took advantage of the empty mountain and got in some pretty great sled rides.

Palmer and Rick decided to map out their ski runs on this trip.  
Rick was thrilled that Palmer skied with him on the backside of the mountain.

Meanwhile, Grace had a ball in the wintry wonderland.  She loved sledding, playing in the snow, and eating the snow.
Grace begged us to put her on skis, so on the last afternoon we got her fitted for skis and experimented with the bunny hill.
Grace's expression here cracks me up. The winds were very high and she was pretty chilly.
 Parenting at its finest right here...

I think it's safe to say that Grace will be ready for ski school next year.  Grace was so hilarious when we went into the warming hut after her ski debut.  She literally stayed frozen in this position for about 10 minutes.  I couldn't help but laugh.  Little gal was cold to the bone and worn out.
Happy trails.
