Too much snow!

Did you ever think you'd hear Alex say THAT! Well he didn't either! But this past weekend there was too much snow! We drove over to Mt Shasta with a few friends for some skiing. There was a lot of snow! It dumped 2 feet Friday night snowed all day Saturday- Dumped another 3 feet Saturday night and was still snowing all day Sunday (they actually got another foot and a half Sunday night too- but we were already home because I didn't have off on Monday)Skiing Saturday was great! Lots of soft fluffy powder! The boys had a blast tearing through the trees dong somersaults down the mountain! I did a few runs with them and then headed over to the other side of the mountain with one of the guys who was still getting the hang of his snowboard! Sunday was a totally different story with about 5 feet of fresh snow! We were about an hour or so late getting up to the mountain because of some folks who did NOT know how to handle driving in snow! No accidents or anything- they just blocked the driveway out of the hotel all morning! It ended up not mattering to much.... because of all the snow so quickly they were having some power problems that affected the lifts and it took a while for them to figure everything out.
Once they opened up the lifts we took a run down an almost untouched slope! Boy was that an experience for me! I'm still learning to ski in powder (I'm used to the east coast) and it was just so deep! Everywhere you looked there were people trying to dig themselves out or digging to find their skis! There was basically no base! At least not one that you could find- Poles were of no help to get you standing back up- they just sunk in and never hit the bottom!The pups loved romping around in the snow! And Hanna, the crazy dog that she is, was happy just curling up in a big pile of snow!Ned looked pitiful on the way home so I caved and let him come up front on my lap for a little! Once we switched drivers, though, he didn't last too long on Alex's! He is a little big to be a lap dog.... but he begs to differ!
that was our fun adventure filled ski weekend.... next weekend... it's off to Tahoe again!
