Snow, Skiing & Salsa...
Well, our ski trip that we looked forward to for so long is now over, but I have to say - it was one of the best trips I've ever been on. From start to finish we had an amazingly good time. The weather in Ruidoso was perfect, mild and sunny, but there was tons of snow on the slopes. Most of us got pretty hot at one point or another while we were skiing. The condo we stayed in was so nice, I could have just hung out there with everyone and had a great time.
The first night of our trip we somehow got some dancing going. I don't remember ever laughing so much. It started with Ben doing his salsa, and Nitzia breaking the news to him that he wasn't doing the salsa. From there it escalated into a full scale congo line up the stairs and through the condo.

We went tubing our first full day in Ruidoso and what fun! It was actually pretty dangerous but very exciting. Nitzia was hilarious b/c she couldn't stop except by running into a big pile of tubes and I almost got decapitated by running into a the rope of someone else's tube.

Skiing was wonderful and I actually did a few blacks. A couple intentionally and several very much by accident. My only injury was to my thumb the last day of skiing. Nathan and I stayed together the whole time, which is unusual, but he was taking it easy after Aaron hurt his leg the first day.
