Skiing in VA

I haven’t been skiing in several years. My parents and I used to often. But then my dad hurt his back and Mom was sick. So when my roommate Chelsea invited me to join her I couldn’t resist.

Chelsea’s step dad is a Ski Guard so our accommodations and lift passes were free! #score

So we piled into my brand new Subaru CrossTrek and headed up North to Winter Green Ski Resort.

We expected to have to slum it on the floor of the guard cabin but were lucky enough to find an available room! We each got our own beds.

We spend the weekend on the slopes surrounded by the beautiful Virginia Mountains. I rekindled my love for snow and speed.

We had a great time afterwards warming up with wine and spaghetti prepared by Chelsea’s hilarious mother.

The drive home was long and quiet. Chelsea and her mom fell asleep and I jammed to Frank Turner and thought about my Mom and how much fun she would’ve had the trip. We were all very happy to have heated seats.
