Skiing the "mountains" of Massachusetts

Scott has been working just about every day for the past few weeks, weekends included. So when Scott had a random weekday day off, he took Bruce skiing. And since Miss J was sick, Phoebe and I came along for the ride. While Scott and Bruce skied, Phoebe and I made snow angels, pulled a sled around, hung out at the lodge, and just played.
Bruce was really excited to go skiing for the first time this year, but the first few runs were still tricky for him. After he remembered how to slow down and stop and such, he tackled bigger slopes and different routes.
He mirrored Scott for awhile, but as the day went on he became more and more comfortable making his own lines.
Scott got a few runs on his own, but going by himself made him miss the real slopes of Bozeman.
We stayed for 6+ hours and when we finally left, Phoebe cried and cried because she wanted to stay longer - and then slept and slept to make up for not having a nap. Bruce was a better sport about leaving, but vows to be back soon.
