It’s been quite a few years since I have skied, and Christian has never hit the slopes. I was a little nervous because I remember falling quite a bit the first time I put on skis…and let’s be honest, falling 15x in an hour can quickly take the fun out of an experience.
Luckily, thanks to refreshing ourselves to ski lessons via YouTube (not kidding), we managed pretty well and only took a few falls that were usually followed with laughter.
We both wanted to take a ski trip in February and since I mostly planned our anniversary trip to Santa Barbara (part one & two), this trip fell on Christian’s shoulders and he did a fantastic job. We stayed in Deer Valley for three nights and Salt Lake City for one. I have never visited Utah and was enchanted with the snow and mountains – absolutely breathtaking! We spent the majority of our trip skiing which sadly meant my camera was stuck in the lodge, so a lot of these shots were taken with my phone. I was definitely a little sad to come home – skiing in fresh snow while watching it fall from the sky – a magical experience.
Thank you so much for all of your suggestions!! We visited several of your recommendations, and I am truly so appreciative of all of your fab advice.
