Last week, Spring Break officially starts but I had to work for few days, then we took off to Manning Park Resort for three days. We had a great time. The drive was shorter than we thought..no traffic..kids didn't say once "are we there yet?" LOL. We checked into the Manning Park Lodge..Sean and CA wanted to take the advantage of skiing right away with GORGEOUS weather!! It was sunny with blue sky..since we heard that it will rain the next day and next. (it never happened) just very light snow and then most of the time it was sunny. It did become so warm that we had to take off our winter coat and pants. Cory and I went sledding together..I took a video of it. You can see his laughter..sweet!
We came back to check into our room..we all went swimming and hot tubbing. Then the next day, it was sunny again and Sean thought they should go out again and take an advantage of it! They skied a full day..no line ups! Sean can't keep up with CA! ha ha..he must be getting old! I think it's time for me to get him a helmet. You can't be too careful with our ages these days..ha ha. Cory went to ski school to take private lesson for a hour..he did very well. After a hour, he was "done"...
We missed out the snow tubing..:( that was the most disappointing part. We didn't know it only run on weekends. If we had known, we should have gone on Sunday prior to our arrival. Next time! but we did a lot of sledding and playing in the snow. Ice skating rink was closed too..again it was a huge disappointment, I kinda of knew it will happened because of warmer weather now.
The trip is not all at loss..it was only $99.00 a night with TWO full days ski pass. (special rates)
