Fun Skiing Day [Video]

pizza party
Hmm . . . Pizza after Skiing!

I joined Young Naturalist C, J and E today for a fun skiing day over at the Holimont Ski Resort in Ellicottville, New York. This is our annual skiing day that we do each year and the kids keep on getting better and better . . . . I continue to have a harder time keeping up with them!! We are always guaranteed many laughs and I will probably feel the fun we had tomorrow morning once my muscles relax!! (ugg) This (2:35 minute) video is only a sample of our excellent day!!

    Looks like a fun time. I have never had the opportunity to ski. I have always thought I would like cross country skiing. I don’t know why Ihave come to that conclusion other than I like to be outside and I thought that would be a fun way to get around. I know I would be a sorry bag of bones if I tried skiing now. I hope you aren’t too sore today.

  5. Oh to be young, flexible, and fearless again…sigh. :c) What great fun it looks like you all had!

  6. Yesterday was a perfect day for skiing and winter fun. It was not too cold, not windy at all, and there was a little sprinkling of snow. I went X-country skiing at a park near us and covered somewhere between 10 and 20 miles. I had to take advantage of the weather while it lasted. Looks like all of you are good skiers. Glad you had fun.

  9. AWESOME music video! I love the scene and the song, but the best is how you signed off….they didn’t even argue with you! lol.
    You did a great job.

  10. @ Nita – thanks and they are all great skiers!
    @ Erie – thanks and just need to be little careful but snowboarding is all about the feeling the hill more than watching!
    @ Lana – sure was fun and snow wasn’t evil yesterday!
    @ Lisa – XC Skiing and Snowboarding is both lots of work and unless you do it all the time . . . you end up using muscles you don’t normally use!
    @ Jayne – thanks and you do feel older each year you go out!
    @ Scienceguy – thanks and the weather was great for sure! Glad you got out XC skiing! Having fun is always a great way to be out skiing!
    @ Pam – was great for sure! Hmm, you are more than welcome to our snow but I am sorry pizza is all gone!
    @ Heather – thanks and not as bad as I thought I would be!
    @ Chicago – They are great kids but like anyone else they do get tired of the camera always being pointed at them!

  11. That really does like a great day. I hope you had a few good rides down the slopes after you put the camera away.

  12. I am so impressed with those young naturalists and you for taking that video while skiing. I have never done downhill skiing but do cross country although we seldom get just the right conditions for it here. Great video!

    Awesome!! Looks like a fabulous day!

    and did I see by the Flickr Tags that is your new video camera? looking good!

  14. The pizza caught my attention first :o) I’ve been skiing only twice and loved it, even when I ended up on my bum.

    What a great time for the young naturalists and YOU! Cool video and music. I only wish they had taken a video of you on the slopes :o)

    27 January 2008 at 9:25 pm

  15. Great! Loved the video turned out great! The music went along great and that was an amazing day for snowboarding!!!!

    27 January 2008 at 9:46 pm

  16. Wow this is so great that everyone is putting on videos now….I loved the video and the music and sure looks like fun. I never know what I will find on this site. Cheers.

  17. @ Robin – It was great for sure and did have many wonderful trips before and after!
    @ Joan – I believe in giving kids opportunities and if you give them the opportunity to ski . . they will do good! Not only that it is good exercise and helps build self confidence.
    @ Marg – sure was and yep, new camera! I need to write my review about it here soon! Just need time to type!
    @ Mary – Thanks but you didn’t want to see my sorry old ass snowboarding! But you can see me from last years clip!
    @ YN-J – sure did and you guys did awesome! It took a while for me to figure out what music to use!
    @ Island – I have been doing video’s for a while and glad you enjoyed it! Hope you come back again!

    Great extended and gifted family you have there!

    I am too out of shape to ski!

    28 January 2008 at 7:11 pm

  20. That was fun. Almost felt like I was going down the slope, too! Most impressive that you were filming while skiing!

    28 January 2008 at 9:45 pm

  21. Hi Tom,
    A very fun video! Looks like all of you had a great time. Kind of you to take the kids out skiing.
    Looking forward to more videos. They are fun to watch. Your new camera and you behind the lens did a great job.

  22. Lisa @ Greenbow

    I guess I won’t be cx skiing any time soon. I have a hard enough time keeping my desk chair that is on casters in the proper position for me to type. Thanks for the warning.

    29 January 2008 at 2:28 pm

  23. You do have a very nice voice, Tom! 🙂
    Very impressive video! Those kids are amazing.

    29 January 2008 at 2:31 pm

  24. Cool! It’s been years since we skied. you all look like you had too much fun! yea

    29 January 2008 at 8:54 pm

  25. @ Natureshutterbug – They are all great and still mad they wouldn’t let me pay for the pizza!
    @ John – no one is out of shape to ski but some just need to be more careful than others.
    @ Rondi – sure was and glad you enjoyed it! Really isn’t that big of a deal . . . I am surprised young naturalist J didn’t comment on me including my crash with the video! Camera never hit the snow though! You know, going slow is much harder than going fast! Go figure!
    @ Sherry – thanks and we sure did! Actually, Young Naturalist C&E’s mother took care of us all! Hope to be working on some more here soon! Thanks and helps to have good subjects like these guys/gals!
    @ Lisa – LOL and anything outside has to be better than indoors!
    @ Ladybug “lisa” blush, thanks! Those are some amazing kids but the truth is all kids are amazing! Sometimes we just need to give them the opportunities to do things!!
    @ Toni – I don’t get out that often but do enjoy doing it from time to time! Fun . . . isn’t that they only way to do things?

    30 January 2008 at 4:56 pm

  26. Looks like you had a blast Tom, the video is great and the pizza is making me hungry 🙂
