Over the Weekend...

So as I mentioned in last Thursdays post, Chris and I went to my mom's house in Maine this past weekend. The weather looked like it would be pleasant and perfect for snowboarding, so we made plans to head to the mountain on Saturday. It was so nice being somewhere that has NICE snow- not the mashed potato mush of Boston!
The view driving down my mom's road is pretty amazing when it's clear out (the white peak is Mt. Washington)...
What's great about our local mountain is that it's almost guaranteed you will find someone to ride with, and true to form we ran into our friend Shawn in the parking lot! WInters in our town were never boring, it's great having so many mountains around, my brother even has time to come here during his study hall...
Chris and I looking pretty gnar after deciding we were old and crotchety and swapping the slopes for hot chocolate...
My brother has the most amazing one-piece snowsuit I have ever seen. He got it super cheap at the local charity shop, and it makes spotting him on the mountain extremely easy (what's missing is his leopard-print scarf and lime green helmet) ...
It was so nice to get away for the city and see friends and snow and family, I'm really looking forward to going back up!

Your brother has some serious confidence to rock the hot pink one-piece.. and he sure pulls it off!


Your boards look pretty wicked too.. here in Sydney its a week long expedition to go to the slopes (a six to seven hr drive.. so you want to make the most of it once you finally get there!)... and they are always SOOO busy for how crappy the snow is.

It looks like you had an absolute ball. What a fun pre-birthday weekend.

Ha! Loving the snowsuit on your brother! I feel like such a bum, I haven't been out snowboarding at all this year!

His snowsuit is AWESOME! My cousin has one like it, leftover from his mom's glory days, and he rocks it every once in a while on the slopes, and alllll the time at costume parties.
