Ski Trip

Last weekend, we took a ski trip to the upper peninsula of Michigan. We rented a minivan, which was okay, but cramped with 7 people in it!!
And then we had a problem. . . about 20 miles south of Madison, WI, and 4:41am Friday morning, we got a flat tire!!! Uhhh ohhhh! Thats was really annoying, but Romy fixed it with the spare tire. Thats him on the picture to the right. There were trucks passing us going 70mph, and so close!! But we finally got back on the road in less than an hour.

The first day we went downhill skiing at BlackJack Mountain. Thats was fun, but we were really tired. We skied a half-day. The next day was cool. We downhill skied at Indianhead Mountain, and it snowed all day, putting fresh powder on the slopes. We were doing black-diamonds that day!

Later, we went out for a big plate of spagetti and meatballs at the Ore House restaurant. Mmmmmm. . .

Finally, Sunday, on our last day, we woke up really early to go cross-country skiing at ABR Trails. They have a huge web of trails, and they were freshly covered with snow from yesterday's snow fall (about 3-4 inches at least). We had a good time. Nicole and Marcel rented skating skis and me and Romy had our classic striding skis. Then at the end, me and Nicole switched.
