Close to the top of the mountain
This past weekend T and I headed up to Ruidoso to go on our second ski trip together. We had heard that there were season passes on sale for $199, regularly $600 per person, so we wanted to see if it was too good to be true. Sure enough we asked and the tickets were good for any day and last through next April. We couldn't beat that so we ended up getting two season ski passes. We figure we will go at least 4 times and each time you go it is 100 bucks for a ski lift so it was well worth it! We even got to use it last weekend! T and I never thought we would be skiing in New Mexico. The ski mountain is better than we both ever expected.
When we pulled out of the driveway Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. we were thrilled because the high was suppose to be in the high 40's and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Well as we started our way up the mountain we notice that there was no clouds in the sky except for one BIG one right over Ruidoso (the actual ski slopes). To say the least we froze our hinnies off all day. It didn't stop snowing all day. That didn't stop us though. We started skiing around 10:00 and didn't stop till 4:00. It was an AWESOME day! After skiing we headed to Farley's where T's eyes were a little bit bigger than his stomach. He definitely order the Mondo Hondo, which consisted of 2 hamburger patties! He couldn't even eat one patty so we ended up taken most of it and my meal home with us. We are headed up to Ruidoso next weekend to get our last weekend of skiing in.
