SNOWBIRD TRIP 2018
Part 5: Thursday, April 5 – Friday, April 6

THURSDAY, APRIL 5

Ohhh…this was a pivotal day in Todd’s skiing career! We bought ‘beginner’ tickets at Alta, to ski off the Sunnyside lift only. This was Todd’s first time skiing off-reins on real, ‘big’ ski runs (instead of just Chickadee or the rope tow). We were among the first people in line.

Our first run was down to the bottom of the chair, skier’s right of the lift.

Our second run took us to Alf’s lodge. Notice how Todd waves to all the people on the chairlift…(He’s such a ‘people person’!)

At the lodge, we met the mountain manager, and he gave us an Alta anniversary pin. Todd played with his PJ Masks figures while eating his snack.

Our third run took us all the way to the bottom (and Todd was done!). Eric took a run on his own while Todd and I shopped for a souvenir toy. When Eric came in, I went out for one more run.

Before 1 pm, we were on our way back to the Cliff. After a recharging nap, Todd had energy once again for the pool.

FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 2018

On our last day at Snowbird, it actually rained…a first for us! It was fine, though. We hung out in the room, walked the hallways, and took the shuttle to the Snowbird Center for lunch. I’ve never had smoked eggplant on a pizza, but it really added some extra flavor! (Notice the little brown things in the picture.) Todd played with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, for the last time. After nap, we went to the pool one last time.
