I'm jealous. We were supposed to go in March. But everything at work is so crazy we canceled. Have fun be careful. When do you get back? You ski or board?  My wife skis and I board.
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

Nice pics Greggy!!  Not a big fan of the snow, but it sure looks beautiful.  Have fun and be safe.
It's not just fun, it's an addiction!

I grew up in Buffalo, New York. So I had more than my fair share of snow, but once a year it is great! It snowed all day while we were up on the slopes today. I will try and post a couple more pics.

It's funny how some people (especially in Florida) think that anything to do with snow/winter is terrible. Those pictures are awesome! What a beautiful place. If you lock yourself in the house when it is cold and snowing, then you will probably be miserable. If you get out and enjoy all that winter/snow sports have to offer, you will discover that snow and cold are not "evil". Guess what? They have warm weather in those places too! What a concept......4 seasons with different activities! It just seems like you see a lot of people who move to Florida and never leave again. Like if it is below 70 degrees, they will die or something. I try to travel North every year to keep things in perspective. Great pictures!

Hey Gregg,

let me know where you guys are staying and if you got a good deal. I want to take my family out there next year for a vacation in the snow. I cant do it this year since we have too many other trips planned.

Gregg--you need some kind of intervention, being on this forum on vacation! :o
For real though--can you say "addiction"??
