Snowboarding Stephens Pass

As there was not enough snow where we were staying to go snowmobiling we decided to buy the powder pack pass for $159 that allowed you to ski 4 times. It had to be purchased before Christmas so we just got it in time. They deducted the price of the ticket we bought today so it was great value!!!

Ours first snowboarding day was Christmas Eve up at Stephens Pass. It took us about 30 minutes to drive-up there from the Wenatchee house. We had organized rental gear the day before on arrival into Leavenworth . All of us went except for Brad who looked after the kids and Adam who had to work tonight.

Ski tickets only cost the girls $35 each to use the lift for the green runs. The rest of us paid $60.

The boys spent the morning teaching the girls how to snowboard. We had some funny moments watching the girls trying to get the tow rope up until Madi fell and hit her head so everyone then decided to wear their helmets that they had decided were not necessary!

I headed off to do some blue runs by myself & then met up with everyone by the fire pit for lunch. It was the first time my feet did really well and didn't force me inside every hour to get feeling back into them.

After lunch I hung out with Michael, Nick & Nath. The girls kept practicing on the green run & were slowly improving. It was nice sitting around the fire pits at the end of the day before heading home.
