First run of 2009

After missing out on the last snowfall a couple weeks ago, we made it out today to Ski Butternut, where got a little more comfortable with our skills. Falls were had (unfortunately, Brian had one of those bone shaking ones and got a bit of whiplash), but overall, a successful venture. We decided that we will take a lesson since we're at a bit of a plateau. Luckily, on the chairlift, we met a former employee who highly recommends "Moose" for lessons.

Brian suggested we take a break, and what was just a little down time turned into, uh, we're done for the day. We did get a bit too comfortable in the lodge, eating some not-so-great clam chowder and granola bars. And I did make a rather obvious comment about, if you feel pain, you should probably stop (ie. Brian's whiplash).

We had taken a nice and quiet road up this time, where the division between town lines was clear via how well the road was plowed. It went from pretty well cleaned to feeling like we were entering Narnia. It was quite funny and beautiful.

This was taken on the trip back.

It seems our snowboarding excursions lead us to some sort of fast food joint - this time, it was Wendy's.
