Ferretworld hits the slopes

Ferretworld has just returned from it's annual pilgramage to Northstar.
We stayed again at the Ski Trails condos - close to the trail and with the advantage of a toboggan slope behind the apartments.

Adam did a couple of days of ski school and consolidated his skiing style. He is working on parallel turns and can execute them well on the more gentle slopes.

We had a great day skiing with Adam while Finlay did a 3rd day of lessons. We skied all over the mountain from the top of Mount Pluto back to the village. We really don't have to wait for Adam these days!

Finlay's lessons have really paid off - he was able to ski back to the village without help after the first day:

On our last day we all went skiing together. The boys here in the gondola.

We really had a great time together. It's the first time that we have truly skied all together. Finlay was keen to tell everyone that he skied down Loggers Loop without holding anyone's poles.

The boys were great together; Adam looking after Finlay, and trying to lay down a good set of tracks for F to follow. The follower sometimes wants to go faster though!

Of course what they both really wanted to do was go on the Terrain Parks...but we just watched instead! I believe it's only a matter of time until I'm watching my sons hurtle over these ramps and jumps!
