We decided to stay in Rossland an extra day and ski with Hendrick. Keith called and gave us a 2 for 1 pass which was very nice of him. Henrick skiied with me the whole day and gave me some great tips. What a fantastic instructor he is. I wish I could stay a week and spend more time with him. Red is definately a serious mountain. It is steep and there are lots of trees...which I am working on. Henrick said not to look at the trees, but where I want to place my turns...sounds easy right?
We spent the night in the Red parking lot again...they haven't come around to collect their $10 the last 2 nights....
Made it all the way to Hood River Oregon. The drive was very nice and great conditions. It was snowing and zero when we left Rossland and after driving for about 5 hours it actually went as high as 17 degrees. It was around 10 degrees when we hit Hood River. No snow at all in Oregon and only traces in Washington.
For those of you who don't know about Hood River...it is a huge windsurfing area. Guys sail all year round in the gorge. There are lots of shops here and we are just waiting for them to open. Bill is gone to get the oil changed as we have driven close to 7000km.
We are going to head for California....still trying to decide how much time to spend in Mexico and how much time we need to ski in Utah.....and how we are going to fit everything in between....grand canyon, seeing friends, hikes...etc....
