The first day Jessica and I hung out at the lodge. We went on a little cross country snowshoe hike for lunch and spent some time on the sled hill. It is the same place we were last month for the Leave No Trace course, but they had over four feet of snow since then. Hiking through the powder was difficult.
We came back and had a soak in the hot tub and relaxed in the room with a beer. The rooms are on the second floor so it's easy to keep beer cold in the snowpack on the roof.
Sunday we got up and went out to break in my cross country skis that Jessica got me for Christmas last year. We had an hour and a half lesson first which covered the basics, then we took off on our own. It was as exhausting as people say, but really pretty to explore. I was sore for the next three days.
