This past weekend my cousin Domenica, her husband Gustavo, and some of their friends came to Utah to ski. Domenica and Gustavo live in Houston.
I uploaded some pics to facebook http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=233477&id=879910713&l=d7c58300ed
As you can see in the pics, the weather was perfect for us beginners. It was above freezing, maybe 40F, and the sky was clear. It was a beautiful day to be skiing.
And I say it was perfect for the beginners because hard core skiers like “powder” snow to ski on. Powder snow is when you have at least a feet of new snow, so it feels like you’re skiing on a soft cloud. But it is a little harder to control your skis and if you fall down, it is a pain in the but to get back on the skis.
