March 31, 2013, Hyak, The Grom Tour
« on: 04/02/13, 09:28 PM »

Took my 10-year old daughter out for her first "tour" on a beautiful Easter Sunday.  With some coaxing and promises of candy at the summit, we made it to the top.  Bluebird day, decent snow and the best tour of the season for me hands down. 

(BTW, this girl has had two reconstructive surgeries of her spine so far, definitely my inspiration for getting out.  Sorry for the dad gushing.)

Nice TR.  What a great day to be in the mountains.  I took my 7 month old on his first tour that day as well.  Same spot, same awesome experience.  Skiing with your kids is the best.

Nice!  I can't wait until I get to do the same with my girl.

West is another great spot to take kids for canned ski/mountain photo shoots. This one is from last spring.  Never could get her to stop playing with her feet long enough to actually look at the camera...
