A Vermont New Year

Mountains come out of the sky and they stand there.....

40 plus years skiing in one place and they'll name a trail after you

I like skiing the terrain parks, but I leave the features for the
younger folks.  The knees can no longer endure the impact.

Guacamole, Yellowfin Tuna Tartare, Tortilla chips
and Wasabi.  We practically licked the bowls.

Lucky kids.  Now my older daughter wants a snow machine.
Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh (buzzer sound)

Finale at the base lodge of Stratton Mountain, Vermont.
We and a thousand of our closest friends watched
underneath as we wished each other a Happy New Year!

    Looks like you had a blast.

  2. So was the skiing clip you or the wiener dog?

  3. GMTA. P made the tuna tartare and wasabi for New Year's Eve as well, and it was the (food) hit of the party!

    Wiener dog must have gotten some new boards for X-mas. Very impressive control for a dachshund. Hope she was wearing a helmet with all those reckless snow boarders around.

  4. Happy New Year to B-Dog, W-Dog, and the family!

  5. One mile over we'll be there and we'll see you
    Ten true summers we'll be there and
    Laughing too
    Twenty four before my love you'll see I'll be
    There with you

    Song is now stuck in my head.


  6. Looks great - now I want to go skiing too!
