Hi, Deb!

The sun was shining Sunday morning!  Checkout time from the condo was 11:00 am, but we extended it until noon.  The skiiers could get a couple hours in before packing it for home. 

We didn't quite make it out before noon, but no one seemed to care.  It took more time for everyone to get things around and hauled to the vehicles.  After a quick lunch in the condo, arrangements were made to let our son, daughter-in-law, and the older two girls continue to ski, and my husband and I put the twins in the van to ride around and see some of the resort in the daylight.  Actually the ride down the hill to the main lodge complex was beautiful!  Most of the time, the sun was shining, and to make things better, the roads had been plowed and were clear and dry! 

We had to return rental equipment.

A beautiful little footbridge along the drive
  Parking in a 15 minute lot made returning the equipment easy, and by that time the twins had fallen asleep.  We found out that you could watch a couple slopes from a parking lot in the north face area.  On the drive to that lot, we passed the half pipe and snowtubing area both of which were very crowded.  Shuttle buses operated all day long transporting people from the remote lots to the main lodge area.  We were able to find a slopeside parking space, and through cell phones met the rest of the family in that area. 

Nobody wanted to quit!  Conditions were ideal, and skiing was going great!  With both of us having to drive a distance home, with great sadness we left Seven Springs!  But we will be back!  Maybe next time, I will be mended and ready to participate!  A great resort!  Enjoy some of the pictures I took of the area!
