Timberline Lodge - lunar new year vacation, January 2010

Ailey is really enjoying skiing and making rapid progress so we snuck up to Timberline to enjoy the incredible historic landmark and get Ailey some more lessons. Her first instructor labeled her "a little ripper".





The incredible Timberline Lodge.



Monstrous ice cycles from outside the hotel window.

Hot tubbing in the snow.

It was a challenge to keep up with "the little ripper". I took some video of her screaming down the mountain but its too shaky to upload as I couldnt keep pace.

Ailey's second instructor taught her how to ski on one ski.
