I'm mid week into an anesthesia meeting/ski vacation trip and thought I'd post a few pics. :D

Here's the motley crew. Left to right: our friends Sheri, Geri, Mrs Rolex, Lillly, and me.

23 inches of snow in the first two days = MAJOR snow angels!

96 inch snow base on the slopes = good skiing. :D

The roof tops of the condos. I don't know how they hold all that weight. One of the locals said thay haven't seen this much snow in one season since the 1950s.

Not quite a snow angel....this is what happens when a 3 year old loses her balance and takes a header into 3 feet of snow. She laughed about it. :D

A cell phone pic from the lift today during the storm. I think we got another 6-8 inches today.

Man, thats the trip I wish I was on right now. I just had surgery on my stomach about 3 weeks ago (spent nearly 2 weeks in the hospital, not fun) and it has blown my whole ski season right down the crapper. Doctor's afraid of me getting a hernia because now there are extra holes in my stomach muscles, so I can't even go back to work until March. Those slopes look way better than the little hills we got here in the Midwest.

Ha, was wondering why you hadn't commented about the new BRD affliction in the other thread.

Looks like a good time!
