That was a real treat. I have a 2 year old daughter that will get her first taste of skiing/riding next season. I can’t wait to be able to take her on trips like this one! Thanks for the post, it’s an inspiration for all dads (and moms) out there.

Those are the kids who are going to grow up and continue what we started. Sweeeeet…thanks for sharing.
