B-day week highlights!

Had a really good B-day week... filled with ski adventures with friends and family.

Skied one day with the fam, another with friends (no kids), and another day with the fam which included a lake run with Miley and Metres.  On my B-day I got to ski with Moses and Alexis all day. A few days later I was back up with Kevin and Nick B, which turned out to be the best day yet.

Here's the highlight reel... of the first day...

And from the 3 days after...

And the pics.

Day 3 - You'll get a better idea if you see the vid, but Nikko is pretty silly cute in his ski attire.  He likes eating snow.  
I caught up with Miley and Metres for a lake run at the end of the day.  Here's Miley at the top of Donner.

Cool graffitti at the tunnels.  
Selfie with Donner.  
At the bottom... these are the pillow lines... when it's pillowy.  This time it was hellacious.  I caught the impact when Miley ate it and almost hyperextended his knee.

Where we quickly decided that we should just do side country vs hunt for chunder.

Check this out.  One bonus about ski flying... is that you can just trigger an avy and fly away...
