Today was our last chance to use our free Spirit Mountain ski passes. Despite sustained winds of 23 mph and wind gusts of 35 mph, we put on our gear and headed to the mountain. My niece and nephew came with their friends and joined us. We had a great time with less than ideal conditions. Sebastian did most of his skiing with the big kids, while Mike, Sophia and I skied together. Sophia is becoming a great skier. Although I was able to stay ahead of her on the slopes today, I think this may be my last year of out-skiing anyone in the family. Sophia is definitely ready for the Chester Bowl Ski Races next season. Perhaps she will even win a trophy or two like her big brother did this year.
