Skiing up north
Tuesday, April 5th, 2005
We spent a week skiing at Mont Saint Anne outside of Quebec. Gorgeous weather and very lite crowds. We all tried snow boarding the last day. On the first run after lunch I didn’t fall — went up the tow rope swearing I was going to give up skiing. The next run I fell 15 times. We’ll see next year. We also enjoyed the “sugar shack” halfway down the north side… had some fantastic maple syrup congealed on snow. Shopping was fun — felt European both in the local grocery store and at a mall we visited in Quebec.
Lots of reading by the fire at night, including a great kids version of the Odysee. We resuscitated the game of “ri-ri-ki” and added our own scoring variations.
