What a fun weekend! The weather was kind of all over the place though. We packed a lot of snow and dad carved a lot! This was our 4th year getting to go and probably one of the best. We didn’t get much snow were we lived this year and can’t afford snowboarding right now so this trip was perfect at no cost to us what so ever!
Lots of carving going on. I think my dad did a total of 7 pieces.
We did take some breaks to play some card games ( speed, and nertz) and drink hot cocoa. Lets just say I am the champ when it comes to those 2 games.
After we had most of the packing and shaping on the sculptures done we were able to play on the mountain. Some days were better than others. The first day it was snowing, the other days it was sunny, icy, rainy and just all over the place.
Tyler, Matt and I snow boarded. Dad skied and mom tried cross-country skiing I hear its quiet the workout from everyone that tries it.
Friday night we played Bingo down the mountain in a small town called Packwood. On the way there we saw a ton of Elk all over the town.
We pretty much kicked those seniors butts at Bingo all together we won a couple hundred dollars and free food 🙂
Saturday is when the snow carnival started and the castle and all the carvings were complete.
It was a long fun-filled weekend. It was fun to play in the snow but I cant wait for Hawaii next month!!
Have you ever watched some one carve with a chainsaw?
What do you prefer skiing or snowboarding?
