Bustin’ A Move on the Bunny Hill

Yesterday I went skiing. Yes, there are several “ski resorts” within a couple hours of Chicago, if you can believe it.

Though we considered going to Alpine Valley, we opted for Wilmot. It is a massive mountain:

253

It takes about 2 minutes to go up any of the 6 or so lifts, and about 20 seconds to ski down.

Nevertheless, we had a great time! It really did feel like we were in ski country. Complete with a fireplace at the lodge and everything. (It’s $40 for a lift ticket, which is pretty steep considering that resorts in Colorado aren’t much more.) We got there around 1 and stayed until about 3:30 when the visibility got bad due to snow.

Don’t we look official?

256

Good thing we went yesterday instead of today — the windchill is currently -20.
