A Colorado Christmas Eve Skiing at Winter Park

 Yesterday was a gift.  Truly.  Our friends Mary Ann and Chris made plans with us a couple of weeks ago to ski on Christmas Eve.  We met early and carpooled to Winter Park Resort.  When we arrived, we discovered not only did we have "freshies" (fresh powder), but also not many people were there skiing.  No lines, open terrain!  It snowed all day and every hour the snow was better and better.  We were so happy, Mary Ann and I sang Christmas carols on thd chairlift!!  After skiing nearly six hours at Mary Jane and Winter Park, we stopped to take some photos, have some hot cocoa and headed home to Denver.  Thank you, universe, for such a beautiful gift of friendship and a day of epic skiing! A day we will remember forever.
