Tis the season...

...For family and CROSS COUNTRY SKIING!!

Marc, Kylie & Shareen arrived on Friday, so on Saturday the fam (minus pregnant Kylie and foot-surgeoned Mom) took a trip to Waterton National Park to ski the Cameron Lake trail.

Marc was sooooo excited to get moving...

But slow down Marco, the speed limit is only 50km/h...

We had ourselves a spectacular day. The ground was covered with snow, it was relatively warm, and big beautiful snowflake chunks were falling.

Shareen may or may not have a tendency to fall when faced with any type of decline, and these falls are usually of the extremely entertaining variety. Whenever there was a hill of any degree, I would race down it and be ready to document Shareen's potential tumble.

She stayed vertical at first (barely)...

But she didn't disappoint! The face plant came soon thereafter...

(There's more where THAT came from later on!)

After we reached the snow-covered lake, we went on a mission to find the perfect dining spot...

...and find the perfect spot we did!

Once the skis came off, the depth of the snow became increasingly evident as we sank deeper and deeper...

(Ooooo, Marc looks so menacing with his mountain man 'stache!)

After Lowell had himself a little ski adventure atop a picnic table, we made our way back to the van and called 'er a day.

For your viewing pleasure, we have composed a short video of our ski bloopers. Even the pros have tumbles once in a while...
