After Nick's flight got in from Portland, we drove up to my cabin for a day of skiing. The cabin is about 20 minutes away from Crystal mountain, so we get to sleep in a little bit and still make it up to the mountain before the lifts open.
For a Saturday, the crowds really weren't that bad and we got a pretty good day in, 8:30 start and 2:00 p.m. finish. Since Nick is still learning, I did some runs just with my dad that were a little more challenging but also did some runs with Nick.
We had great weather and it was nice to be up in the mountains again.
