The famjam had a wonderful time at Mount Washington skiing, tubing, and generally having a wonderful time.

During our approach, the sky opened up and the rain on the highway translated to snow on the mountain.

So much new, beautiful fresh snow. It made for a bit of a trudge, but it was worth it.

There were some limitations with what we could do with the snow, however.

Sunrise up there? Yeah, kinda beautiful. We were privileged to stay at my Aunt & Uncle’s place up there, and it was beyond fantastic.

We finally had a chance to use Kit Kat’s snowman kit. She was proud of her creation. Unfortunately, it fell victim to The Snowplow Of Doom™.

No worries, though. With the exception of the end of his pipe, we collected all the pieces for our next lower-island blizzard.

Kidlet was introduced to skiing and, while she spent more time on her bum than on her skis, she enjoyed herself. Her highlight, of course, was the tube park. Oh, the squeals.

And me? I got my longtime wish of being up at Mount Washington during a beautiful blue sky sunny day.

A great time was had by all, and we’re all itching to go back.
