And skiiing is so much fun. Since we have gone several years in a row, the four oldest can free ski with mom and dad. Also, since we have gone to Keystone every time, we all know the runs and have our favorites. Its fun to see that runs that were really steep last year aren't as intimidating this year. This trip, it snowed both days we skiied, but the second day was the coldest by far. It was zero degrees on the top, and even though my face was pretty cold by the end, there was a gondola we could take up. That gondola was so nice and warm and protected from the icy, bitter wind! I will say, because we go during the week, there are no lines for the lifts, anyone who goes to ski school gets a private lesson, and we get way more time to ski.

My other highlight was tubing. There are these hills with different lanes that you snow tube down. You can hook up with other tubes which makes you go faster and farther. Dad hung out with John Caleb in the lodge, but the rest of us trekked up the hill and slid down again and again. Definitely a must try if you go to the mountains.
We not only "conquered" the snow in Colorado, we also conquered the snow here in Kansas as well! :)
