About a month before we left, I signed up to receive text updates on snowfall, and we realized that we were going to a mountain with more snowfall than we had ever seen! In fact, every day it snowed overnight, and several of the days it snowed throughout the day. By the time we arrived, there was an incredible base! It continued to snow during our stay there, which made for a much different experience. Thankfully we arrived on time, and were able to get groceries, fitted for our skis and take the kids ice skating. What a great way to kick off our trip.
Day 3 was much like the previous day, but we were better prepared with warmers. The biggest difference was the amount of fresh powder we had overnight, making it virtually impossible for them to groom. Every run that we skied had powder up to our knees, making it very difficult for us to make it down as quickly as usual. It tuckered Steve and I out, but the kids loved it! Their instructors taught them how to ski through it, and Preston did mogul runs all day (which he loved). By the end of the day, we were anxious to hop in that hot tub and relax. After talking to the kids, Bennett decided to do an additional day of ski school (instead of the 2 days we purchased before we arrived).
Day 4 we got Bennett checked into school, and took Preston out alone to see how much he had truly learned. I thoroughly enjoy skiing with him because he pushes me! He never asks where we are going, and never complains. He prefers the more challenging slopes, and LOVES doing jumps on all of the terrain parks. Thanks to all of the videos Christian had sent from his ski trip a few weeks earlier, Preston was anxious to show him up (the competition between those two is ridiculous). We had fun exploring!

Overall, another wonderful trip....and probably our last ski trip without wild Walker! Can't wait to see that little guy up on skis, and trying to keep up with his siblings. Thank you Park City for the memories!
