So after the wedding it was back to work for a couple days- slaves to having an income for at least ½ the year! But then it was Christmas and after a fun couple of days in Revelstoke with the Wilson’s and lots of skiing and baking we were off to Rossland in 30 cm of fresh powder to do some DH skiing at Red Mountain. We stayed at the Ram’s Head inn. It’s a super nice log inn with great inn keepers and some fantastic breakfast. The common area was beautiful with a warm rustic feel enhanced by the large stone fireplace. The hill was great with the new snow and we got in 4 days of DH skiing and a couple xc skis to boot.
Our friends Eric and Kathleen had just moved to town, some other east coast friends were there visiting them and my bro arrived on New years so we got in lots of visiting too. New Years we spent a full day on Red and Granite mountain then it was hot tubing and champagne to bring in the new year.
We headed back to Revelstoke to pick up our cats on the way home and got snowed in until 3:30 the next day….not too bad as it meant I got to miss a day of work! I seem to have picked up a bug though which got me sick for a couple weeks.
