The kids were so excited for their first ski day of the season. We had anticipated heading to Copper Mountain but when we saw all the traffic on I-70 we quickly headed north towards Boulder and to Eldora instead. The weather was pretty cold and overcast but the skiing was great. Mike and Abby took lessons during the morning and then met up with us for lunch. The lodge where we ate was pretty crowded so it was a good thing we got there before noon. It was so nice to warm up with hot chocolate. After lunch we all skied together and had some fun jumping contests. Andrew was a little disappointed that I beat him in jumping higher. It was a great first day of skiing with the kids.
