Day one of skiing was awesome.

We're at Fernie in BC -- all 8 of us -- staying for my first time ever on the hill! This is such a treat.

You've got to understand -- previous ski vacations involve us trying to spend as little as possible so we stay at places that smell or that require you to turn off the heat if you want to use the kettle.

This time, there are 2 bedrooms, 5 beds and a pull-out couch. There is a full kitchen. It's ridiculous how decadent this is.

I've just eaten a fantastic spagetti dinner and posted our pics on Picasa (using our free wifi, no less). I'm about to draw myself a bath, hoping that my back won't feel quite so bad by tomorrow morning when we do this all again.

The conditions are a little icy (a lot icy, I'll be honest) but at least the weather is good. Fernie has a history of serving us up crappy weather (rain) every time we come.

I'm pretty proud of myself for keeping up with everyone even though I hadn't been on skiis at all this year before heading out. Yay for me. And I felt pretty good until the end of the day when my back started hurting. I'm so tired now that my eyes are at half-mast. Didn't realize that I'd worked that hard. It didn't FEEL that hard when I was doing it.

The superbowl is on in the background, but I'm not watching. I'm so ready for bed. And it's only 7pm.
