Winter Break Plans

For Winter Break this year, my family and I are not breaking tradition one bit.  We are going back to Vail, Colorado, staying in the same hotel, and doing pretty much the same things.  My mother and sister are avid skiers, so they will be going out on the slopes daily.  My father and I do not ski, but as was the case last year, we will be keeping busy regardless.  I am bringing my laptop and a travel router, because our hotel room has complimentary wired Internet access.  In addition, my sister and I will be going up to the ski resort's mountaintop "Adventure Ridge" at night.  The mountain has tubing, snowmobiling, and ski biking activities.  I did tubing last year with my sister and my mother's friend's son (who was also at Vail at the time).  I liked it a lot, so I will be going back.  Adventure Ridge also has some restaurants where we'll be eating.  The gondola ride up the mountain is especially beautiful at night.  Don't be surprised if I link to some pictures after I get back.

In fact, the only negative aspect of the whole trip is that last year, the Internet in our room was not very fast.  I hope it's different this time around!
