During the winter of 2011 in addition to skiing almost every day at Sugarbush we made three trips out west, one to Heavenly and two to Vail. The Vail trip during President’s Week was Kristen’s chance to introduce Tom Norwood to our favorite resort. Shown above are Kristen, Tom, Leslie, Travis and Bebe at Blue Sky Basin on a sunny day.
Travis was the peak of a Tom-Kristen based pyramid at the summit.
Bebe, Leslie and Kristen pose for me at the top of Avanti lift.

I had a tough time getting far enough ahead to catch stills of these skiers in motion so we tried some video. Here is two minutes of video with glimpses (in order of appearance) of Leslie, Bebe, Kristen and Tom.
I did catch a still of Leslie just once!
In between Vail trips Bebe and I got all dressed up for an Opera Benefit dinner.
On our return trip in late March (our “dessert trip”) to Vail Bebe and I made full use of Blaise and Leslie’s privileges at the Arabelle in Lionshead including morning coffee and after skiing snacks when booting and debooting.
Here’s where we walked to and from the slopes each day at Lionshead.
