The Next Generation: 3 Rugrats, 2 Days, 1 Amazing Deal!

I am a lucky one. As an auntie to 4 beautiful and talented kids, I try to fly home for Christmas and an opportunity to spend some intense quality time together. Living abroad has always been the right choice for me, but with the arrival of my sisters little ones, I felt the twinge of…

Wild Wild West Adventure: part 6 – The Final Episode

April 7th: The morning started out with the roar of avalanche blasting in the background. It’s our last day and I feel the nostalgia creeping in already. It’s been fun hanging out with the locals, meeting like-minded people and exploring a new area. My sore feet will appreciate a short break but my heart will miss…

Wild Wild West Adventure: part 5 – The Next Day

April 6 17:00pm – The last 24 hours have been pretty legendary. After the hot tub, we headed to the riders party at Scissorbills bar.

Wild Wild West Adventure: part 4 – FWQ 4* SFS Big Sky 2014

Contest April 4 19:30pm – I started the long chairlift traverse to the Headwaters section on the other side of the mountain. I rode up the last chair to the hike with Rob, a snowboarder I met at the riders meeting. It was nice to share the painstakingly long and slow double chairlift. Finally at the top, I scrambled…

Wild Wild West Adventure: part 3 – Ups and downs

April 3rd 7:20 – Finally got some better sleep last night… even though I woke up over and over every few hours. Seems like the guys were jetlagged too; whenever I would wake up and look over, they were usually on the computer or whatever. The face inspection and 2* competition will be cool to see. Its a way…

Wild Wild West Adventure: part 2 – Man-tana

April 2nd 15:00 – We arrived in Bozeman Montana earlier than scheduled which was a nice surprise.

We grabbed our gear and started trying to figure out how on earth we…

Wild Wild West Adventure: part 1 – The Arrival

First things first: Happy 5th Birthday Alex!! April Fools Day 14:30pm – Around Christmas time before the season began, I was sitting together with my Mom and Grandmother, having some egg nog.

5 days in the Hole – 2011

Rather than returning to Colorado for a short snowboarding trip and visiting friends, I found a very affordable deal for Jackson Hole; a name that will put a dreamy look on any snowboarders face. My boyfriend at the time was able to score some free lift tickets through Burton which made it even more perfect…

14.9.-1.10. USA New England and Florida

Knowing that I wouldn’t be spending Xmas with the family this year, I arranged a surprise visit at the end of September. It was short but sweet! It was action packed and we made a bunch of great memories. We started off near Boston to visit my Dad, niece and nephew. My nephew is a little man already…
