Skiing at Sipapu

On Thursday, Nathan had the opportunity to go skiing for the first time since moving here to Taos!  We are surrounded by five major ski resorts, so skiing is quite the popular sport in this part of the country.  

The Christian school where Nathan coaches basketball takes a group of students on skiing field trips at the Sipapu resort several times throughout the winter months, so this last time, my husband decided to join them on the slopes.  I tagged along too, so I could watch from the lodge. :)

Getting suited up.

Nathan getting his boots fitted to his skis.

That's a lot of boots!

Tyler - a.k.a camouflaged monkey boy.

Love that hat!

The small lift up to the practice slopes.

There they go!

And here they come again!

Nathan had skied a couple times in Michigan many years ago, so it didn't take him long to get the hang of things again.

He started out on the bunny slopes and ended the day on black diamond runs.

The big lift up the mountain.

Fun times!
