This year, we registered our eldest in FAST. It was a tough decision - she had just started kindergarten and we were worried an additional full day on the slopes would be too much. Let me tell you, the first week was a bit of a shocker for her (and us) but as the season continued, we saw a smile on her face, a sense of pride, new friends being made and her becoming an even better little ripper… and her little sister too, as God forbid she be left behind.

It’s December 12. Not for you, but try to remember. Before your New Year’s hangover and the sweet turns you carved through the crowds. Before it started to get really crazy and really fun. Dec. 12 was the morning it snowed 45 fresh and fluffy cm’s. A Wednesday. First official pow day.
