There were tumbles.
But for someone who hadn't skied in 15+ years and who had NEVER skied in the mountains. I did pretty darn good.
I never conquered the blacks but I held my own on the blues.
And I perfected the art of falling and having multiple cute snowboarding boys stop to help me up.
All in all it was a vacation success.
Note: the difference in the two pictures is best explained in the change of weather. The first day was ideal. High 30's, sunshine and no wind. The second day was overcast, heavy snowfall and winds.
