Presidents Day Ski Holiday

We just got back from a great four-day holiday to visit and ski with Sam and Jenn. Dick connected with us and we all had a fun time - great spring conditions after the massive snow dumps of a couple of weeks ago! Snow is expected back much of this week, so there will be more when we come back. Click on the title of this posting to see some of our pictures.
I had good and bad things happen camera-wise. I fell on the last run of the day in an ungroomed area of Kirkwood and didn't realize my Pentax Optio had fallen out of my vest pocket (it was so warm I didn't wear my parka with all the good pockets). Hence, all the pictures we posed for were lost. I bought a Flip Video camera in time for the trip and used it for the first time this weekend. The videoclips are really sharp and the sound is pretty good. I'm learning to put clips together using Windows Movie Maker and created this little movie. Now if I could just learn to ski as smoothly as Sam . . .
