Skiing at Eldora
It had been a late night on Friday so I knew that it wouldn't be an early morning of getting everyone ready to be to the slopes when they opened. Instead we all woke up at 7am and got ready as quickly as we could. We decided that it would be less stressful to drive to Eldora as opposed to sitting in traffic on Hwy 70 heading to Copper Mountain. The kids all love skiing at Eldora. Even though it is a much smaller ski resort we always have a great time. We all started out at the Little Hawk Family Zone to ski some green runs with Abby. Then I took the older three kids to the blue slopes off of the Challenge lift. We decided to head down JollyJug for the first run like we had done the last time we skied at Eldora. It was a pretty good steep blue run and a much better experience than last time. After heading back up the lift to the top we decided to take a different route down. We headed down Hornblower to International to the bottom. We all liked that way so much better and were excited to tell Mike about that run. Since we were getting hungry we headed to the Lodge for lunch. Mike and Abby met us there and we all ate hamburgers and fries out on the sun deck since the weather was pretty nice. Instead of heading back up the blue runs we went back to the Little Hawk Family Zone with Abby so she could show us some new places she and Mike discovered together. We skied through an A-frame tunnel made out of trees and through a run in the trees. We even watched how Abby zoomed down the blue Sundance run. She always amazes us with how much she picks up in a short period of time. We loved finishing out our day skiing together as a family before heading home.
