Last day on the mountain

It’s hard to believe the week is over and we are returning to Wisconsin today. Of our four days out on the mountain, the last one (Friday) was the best. It was beautifully sunny and not terribly cold. We started bright and early and hopped on the gondola.

One of my favorite things to do is go out to breakfast on top of the mountain, and we usually do it once a year.

After taking one more lift chair up, we were at the top and ready to eat. The special of the day was banana pancakes, which made ordering for me a no brainer.

Let’s take a closer look.

They were thick, fluffy, and packed with bananas. You better believe there was not a bite left on that plate. Gotta carb up for a full day of snowboarding, right?

After breakfast, we did a few groomed runs before deciding to hike up to a run called Long Shot one last time. As the name implies, the run is about 5 miles long and un-groomed. When there’s powder, it is my favorite run. The view from the top is amazing.

We stayed out riding until the lifts were ready to close, taking full advantage of our last day.

Picnic table in the middle of the mountain? Don’t mind if I do.

Ah, I can never get over how beautiful it is in the mountains.

Until next year…
