Nine members of the extended Family Vance family trekked to Eldora Mountain Resort the day after Christmas, and of course we caught the highlights on video. Cousins Lauren, Lindsay, Elijah and Josh hit the slopes, Aunt Lela and Jessica went snowshoeing, and the rest of us just drank egg nog with the elves (really!) in the lodge.
Elijah created this cray-cray fast-motion video, a nice capturing of our excellent day.
David posted a couple of videos recently on the Familyvance YouTube Channel that we hope you’ll watch as an enticement to come visit Colorado in Winter. Our Texas friends and family always blanch at visiting in Winter because they think it’s too cold. It’s not, it’s awesome weather for being outside, and it makes sitting by the fire afterward all the more special.
The first video is just to show what it’s like to run in Winter through snow and ice (spoiler: not that bad, kind of fun). The second video is a trip to Eldora to snowboard and ski with his sister, Valerie and family. Only Valerie appears in the video, but there should be another video produced soon that will show Elijah, Joshua, Lindsay, Lauren … the whole crew.
The videos are a little wobbly, but hopefully they give you an idea about living in a winter wonderland. We mostly love it because of adventures like these. Enjoy.
