The Barn is a favorite dinner spot.
My favorite ski lift at Holiday Valley is the Tannenbaum. So peaceful and beautiful. The trees create an almost magical tunnel of solitude. Since this picture, they've upgraded the lift to an express quad. I kinda miss the slow ride through the trees.
Of course, coming back down is the fun part. I'm happy to putter down the green and blue hills making nice slow S's. Black diamond is a little beyond my skill and knee comfort zone.
I need to complain about winter less and appreciate it's good parts more. If I didn't feel trapped by it, that might help. It can't all be ski weekends and Christmas eve, but sparkly white snowfall is kinda dreamy. Here's my painting of a snowy night at Holiday Valley

TONIGHT! I'm going to The Party Studio to paint with a friend! She's bringing snacks, I'm bringing wine, and we're going to paint a tree-lined path. Can't wait!
