Okay, we're not really snooty, but we did spend the afternoon shopping in Mountain Village. We have had a huge amount of snow in the past 12 hours which made for a fun ride on the gondola! The gondola will be closing tonight and won't reopen until November 16th, the Friday before Thanksgiving, which is also the first day of ski season here. The temperature is 28 degrees and we got tired and thirsty just like we were at the mall, so we had to stop into Colorado Tracks for some hot chocolate, cookies and brownies. :) I did manage to find some ski pants for me on sale and Jay, Maralee and I bought ski boots from 2007 season for 50% off. We all are ready now except for Savanna!
