Big White


After leaving Colorado we headed up to Big White Ski Resort near Kelowna in British Columbia. This is our sixth season up there and the boys and I didn’t want to miss out on skiing this year. The first nine days there were pretty challenging. The boys struggled to get back into the routine of doing school work (we had taken a break while we were in Colorado) and were not as gung ho about ski school as they had been. On top of this, the weather was foggy. I ended up with a really bad cold that laid me up for a few days, and our favorite restaurant up there has gone way down hill. We began to feel cooped up and lonely.


Luckily during the last five days the weather improved and we were visited by our friend Sarah (Cracker’s Australian ski instructor from last season) and by my sister Erin who drove up from Vancouver. Sarah was a delight to have around and the kids absolutely love her. Erin’s visit was too short but it was so great to be able to spend some quality time with her. It had been way too long.

Keeks and Cracker participated in a ski cross race (a new Olympic sport) and I acted as their “coach.” It was a great experience for them but also a bit humbling, as the other kids, who had been racing for years, were so much faster. Next season in Colorado we’re really going to have to work on their race skills. Still it was fun to see them lining up and in the gate with their numbers on and charging down the course as fast as they could. I was proud of them.
