Vail Mountain On April 19th

This post is a little different from what I usually put up,
but I thought it would be fun to share this video with you.
My dad has been skiing and doing ballet skiing since he was a teen
and he is still going strong at over 50 years old :)
The mountain reopened April 19 of this year and my dad hit the slopes.
He met up with a guy that asked if he could film my dad skiing in the powder
and of course dad said sure.
The guy recently put the video up on YouTube and I thought I would put it up on my blog
for you to "experience" our wondrous mountains :)

In the video you will see the beautiful ski mountain and powdery snow,
and my dad in the grey/black jacket and black helmet.
I am sorry about the music (you can mute it) .... but enjoy the scenes and skiing.

This is so beautiful! And your dad is amazing at skiing! It must be such a joy to feel so free and get to fly across the slopes like that.

It was so neat to see the snow and beauty, especially how it looks from the skiers point of view.

Wow, this was stunning...the mountain was beautiful, how fun that must be to be gliding down those mountains in all that snow!!

It always looks so easy when you see a skier gliding downhill, I know it is not and admire anyone who can do it. Lots of lovely powder snow, we don't get much snow in Australia, only down south in the mountains.
