Angelfire 2010

We took a family trip to Angelfire, with us, my parents and my sister, her boyfriend and his daughter in March of 2010.  Ella and Evan did 2 days of ski school.

They had great snow, it was cold, but not really cold and it snowed the first couple of days.  Perfect ski conditions for New Mexico spring break.

We all stayed together in a house and cooked for most meals.  After 2 days of ski school, the kids were ready to ski with us. Wow, we’re we surprised. They both were very gung-ho and had enough ability to ski blues, go through the trees and keep up with the adults.

I learned to ski backwards after growing up on skis and skates, so most of these pictures are taken of live action.

Both kids’ favorite part of the mountain was “Abominable”, an obstacle course on a narrow groomed tree run.
