This weekend was the annual Ski Trip. There were seven of us in attendance this year: Ann, Keith, Que, Roberta & Dave, and Elizabeth & I. This year's location was Spirit Mountain in Duluth, MN. We stayed at the Mountain Villas in #6: Superior View. It's basically right at the top of Spirit Mountain, and we could ski out onto the slopes from our front steps. Not that you could tell that from the summertime picture on their website. We thought it looked like a mushroom house...which made us feel like Smurfs...and you can shut up, N8!
There was actually decent snow - as a large winter storm went through the area and dumped as much as 16" in parts of Minnesota. Duluth only saw about 6-8" but it was very windy and drifts were abound!
We had a great time, and it was nice to get away from the Twin Cities - even if it was for only one weekend.
