Our annual super bowl weekend snowboarding trip. This year we went to Aspen. Even though snowfall amounts for the area were some of the lowest in decades, there was a lot of man made snow put on Buttermilk mountain thanks to the Winter X Games the week prior. Buttermilk mountain also has a wonderful ski school with plenty of spanish speaking instructors -- perfect for Annika. Her first time seeing snow and hitting the slopes was a success. She absolutely loved it and that made us happy since it allowed Julia and I to hit the slopes as well. As a nice send-off, on our last night it snowed and continued to snow till the early afternoon giving us a rare experience of snowboarding on some nice powder. Boy was that a fantastic gift!
