It is fantastic. All we have to do is ski and feed ourselves.
Life is pretty darn good and JEM and I are very, very lucky people.
Skiing on Olympic quality courses, watching 9-year-olds luge, standing atop the 120m ski jump, watching AAA hockey for free, fantastic local micro brew, delicious food, etc….
Lake Placid is pretty fun and we are assured that it is just as much fun in the summer.
Our condo has everything I need
Toasty toes and micro brew
Skiing at the Olympic complex
This hill was much bigger than it looks
At the start of the course
At the start of the 5km route the women skied at the 1980 Olympics
(I only skied into the bushes once)
In the middle of the trail
The babbling brook beside the trail
A mountain in the background (this is exciting for a prairie girl)
The apres ski sauna. This is the sauna in our condo - soooo fantastic
