Two days on the mountains

Skiing and snowboarding at June Mountain with Nash

As someone who absolutely loves the mountains, skiing is one of my favorite outdoor activities. My first time skiing was 32 years ago when I was in 11th grade on a Young Life ski trip. Since then I’ve been several times, and even though there have been large gaps of years with no ski trips, I still can get down the mountain largely unscathed. Well, with the exception of that time in Utah in 2001. My knee still reminds me of that trip every once in a while. Ouch.

June Mountain and Mammoth Mountain

My son and I got to join our friends the Butchers this past weekend in Mammoth. Nash snowboarded and I skied. Saturday we were at June Mountain in June Lake, CA. The next day we went to Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth Lakes, CA. Nash had only snowboarded one other time in his life this time last year. He did so great this weekend getting better and better with each run. We plan to make this a regular father-son outing each year, hopefully, multiple times per year.

Here are some highlights of the weekend.
