Spencer and I spent the day at our local ski hill today, Wapiti Hill. It's literally 3 minutes from the house and at night we can see it lit from our bedroom window.
The Wapiti Ski Club was offering up FREE skiing and snow boarding lessons at the hill this weekend but you had to pre-register. Thankfully Todd sent out an email early and got Spencer a spot for today.
Our little snow boarder!
Here he is with his instructor, Tom, from London England and his group mates on the hill. The groups were small and he only had 4 kids total in his group.
The sun was bright this morning!
Taking his turn down the hill with his instructor in front of him.
Trekking up the hill for another run with board in hand. He's so quick now at undoing his bindings and getting ready for his next walk up the hill. Wapiti has a tow rope system for going up the hill, which he tried a few times to ride but only went a few feet where he wiped out! Walking was a lot faster and less frustrating.
One last run before we headed home. He spent 4 hours on the hill today and did pretty good at improving his skills.
