So this time we were bad parents and left the budding new skier with grandma. We enjoyed a wonderful time at Grand Targhee as adults hitting some more "challenging" runs. (At the end of the day my thighs were ready to spontaneously ignite.) We snapped a few pictures that we thought you might all enjoy.
There was not a cloud in the sky and it held to the high 30's to mid 40's throughout the day. Needless to say, beautiful. The view of the Teton's was clear and pristine. And by the end of the day the sky was the most perfect blue. We really enjoyed ourselves.
So those of you that knew me growing up and are wondering how in the world did Travis get his mind changed about skiing. Well last year my in-laws drug me up to Kelly Canyon for night skiing. After the evening of fun and instruction by both a sister-in-law and a mother-in-law I started to have (here comes the scary word) "fun". For the rest of the 2009-2010 and 2010 - 2011 ski season I was tutored and sometimes what feels like beat over the head with a Louisville Slugger and learned how to ski. (Somewhat.....)
My ski instructor is also a good friend from work who has had the patience with me to teach a 27 year old what my 3 year old is learning this year. Richard has helped me learn and enjoy what can be a truly fun and beautiful sport. So thanks Richard for all your tutelage, guidance, and patience with me over the last two seasons. Tasha and I are deeply grateful. (More Tasha :) )
