Some fun photos and videos of the boys on skis in February and early March.

Skiing at West Bragg Creek


Full size
We took the boys for a fun outing at West Bragg Creek since we had received som new snow and
it's good for the boys to xc ski along with downhill. Here's Walter showing us how to ski
on the Christal Line.

My buddy Graham came out to meet us too and here he is with his daughter Lillian trying out her
little skis while the big man pulls her Chariot too.

Here's the most visible ski suit ever, on Graham and Kayla's son Fisher.

This is Graham's glamour shot at West Bragg Creek.

Graham brought his snow skis which the boys thought was cool. I managed to crash with only a
two foot run, so I'm not sure it's a sport for me but Henry thought it was neat.

Skiing at Nakiska with the whole family

Henry, Walter, and I at the Bronze chair at Nak. At this point, I was still using the hula hoop
to manage Walter on the hill, but we were starting to make the transition.

Skiing Castle with Stacey and Alf and the kids

Walter LOVES playing the Wii and here he is at our rental condo - the Lynx Lodge (#17A).


Full size
I convinced Walter to come up for a ride on the Huckleberry Chair and he was enthused to see
the snow cat up here taking laps out to the open powder.


Full size
After Walter had his first session at Castle for the year, he told me that he was a big boy and
was going to carry his own skis back to the condo. It made me smile.


Full size
Since he was done skiing but the kids weren't back, we decided to do a bit of sledding and Walter
always loves sledding.

The boys' favourite chair is the Green chair, which Grayson and Stacey are enjoying here. They'd do
5-7 laps of this chair and then they'd be ready for a bigger one. The pitch here is perfect for
the little guys and even Rhys and Henry explored more here as they found their independence and
were able to ski on their own and ride the chair on their own too.

Walter and Grayson on the Green chair. Contrary to last year (-39 deg C in the morning) this
trip was PERFECT weather and so warm by afternoon that we had to drop layers.

Full size
Henry and Rhys were SO proud of themselves that they could ski on their own with no parents.


Full size
All of the crew hit the box jumps but this was the only photo I caught, of Rhys jumping.

Walter skiing on his own from the Sundance chair. It was good that there was a fence on this
side since where it was open, Walter got pretty afraid.

I still can't believe we got the whole crew up the Sundance chair on the North Run.
Walter got a bit scared when he couldn't see the edge so I used my pole to guide him a bit.

Walter and I skiing with Grayson photo bombing us. Stacey tried to crop him out, but she still
wound up with his little alien eye from his helmet, which is awesome.
