The weather was fantastic. In fact, it was almost too warm. We were definitely overdressed by afternoon. The snow became soft and slushy by afternoon. It was typical spring skiing. Full sun, warm temps, and soft/slushy snow. It would have been great boating weekend. But ski season is coming to a close, and we just can't pass up opportunities like this to ski with our kids.

|What a nice way to spend our lunch break. Sun, heat, and a great show!|
We stayed at a really nice hotel about 10 minutes from the mountain. It had a small kitchen so we were able to avoid the cost of eating out for both dinner and breakfast. That really helps out on the cost of skiing. The hotel had a very nice indoor pool with hot tub and sauna. We spent several hours in the pool area Saturday night.

We are SO proud of our kids. They are becoming good skiers and they love getting out and exercising all day. Sure, they sometimes complain when it's cold and windy, or they sometimes don't want to get out of bed at 6:15 in the morning so we can drive 2 hours to Grouse Mountain, but they always have fun and look forward to going up gain. We can't ask for much more; it's a great family activity!
