Hotel Jackson, super nice hotel!
And the town is beautiful and cozy.
Amazing skiing!! Can’t get enough. I just love it!!
So much fun with these two!! It hit me yesterday that we’ve been friends for twenty years!!! From that on everything turned in to our 20 years anniversary celebration :) Never a dull moment when we get together!
Cheers for us!!
Cheers again! Mmm Mexican mule after all skiing.
Marcus – is he a model for Bud Light, Hestra or Johan Lindeberg 2019?!
Piiiiirrriii!! And I’m Ciiiiirriii!! Always there for me! He says he’s my bitch :)
And this. Heli Skiing!!!! So cool!! Unfortunately this was the day before I got there. And we were supposed to do it together yesterday. But it got canceled due to the weather. Wtf!! My best ski memory is when I went Heli skiing in Telluride years ago. Oh my, best experience ever!!!!
The view of the Rocky Mountain. We are now on our way back home to Michigan.
Side note. All these pictures are taken with my new IPhone X, I’m impressed. Well done Apple.
Now I’m looking forward to get home to my boys!
Thank you Aspen for an amazing and fun family trip! Well poor Oliver was sick almost the whole time which was sad… But at least he had a really fun afternoon, our last day, including tubing, roller coaster and 30 min skiing before the lifts closed!
The look of a bag of chips on high altitude :) Hög höjd alltså!
And the air is really dry, so a humidifier is a must when you are sleeping! Also, fun fact about my roll-on deodorant. The ball flew out like an eye popping out of its socket, like 7 feet/2m :)
Aspen is about 8000 feet/2400m above sea level and and the mountain we ski on is about 11 000 feet/3400m, you have to drink lots of water to avoid headache. Altitude sickness is pretty common.
More pictures from the trip will come. Time to get ready for our last day, skiing and tubing are on today’s schedule.
Hello from a snowy and very cold Aspen! More precise Snowmass, which is one of the Aspen mountains. These are the only pictures I’ve taken outdoors so far. And that’s because I want to minimize the risk to lose any fingers. -18C/0.4F in the village earlier today, and that means it’s about a million negative degrees on the top :) However, lots of fresh snow, unfortunately wind packed, not the perfect powder, but still so fun!! Ok. I was miserable after my first two runs, I did not look good at all… but before lunch I was flying down! After that we picked up Eddie-Bo from his ski school and then we skied together in the afternoon.
So while we were very active, poor Oliver had to stay at the hotel with a high fever. No not alone, our best babysitter Lisa is with us! His favorite ♥
I’m back on track completely today. I skied for a few hours yesterday, but was exhausted. We didn’t get much sleep the first night either. We checked into the hotel at 1am local time, 3am our time (in the middle of the night) after a delayed flight. When we connected in Salt Lake City we had 17 minutes to the next flight, of course from another terminal… I took the lead and ran for my life with a warm coat and bag, still a little bit sick… after came Eddie-Bo, Johan holding Oliver, Lisa limping with a bad knee all stressed out. Finally at the gate they told us something was wrong with our plane… for real!! If we just would have known… after awhile we got a new plane at a new gate, and spent an hour on the plane before we took off… one of those days. Oh well we made it!!
I bought this book at the airport, I’ve heard both the book and the movie are really good! Reading and early bed time it is. Need that.
Yep, I need more color in my life!! I was so happy when I found this old kimono (from Natori) in my not so colorful closet!
A windy day at the beach!
We are now back home in Michigan. I had no idea the flight was schedule for today, I thought we were going home yesterday… so a confused me had to call school and let them know that Eddie-Bo will miss another day and cancel other things I had scheduled. So typical me!!
I’m almost done unpacking and it’s soon time for Vikings, my new favorite show. What took me so long??
New RayBan’s – my latest add-on to my sunglass collection!
More Mexico pics will come, but the blog is not my priority at the moment. I just want to enjoy the time here.
Have a great day!
