We made it!
I have to say: traveling with kids 5+ is a new world. A new world that I really really like.
We had fun on our flights even with a turbulent ride into Bozeman, and I read basically all of My Name is Lucy Barton and also watched 1.5 episodes of Severance. I sat between A & G and Genevieve rewatched Elf and The Grinch and took a nap and was generally quite easy, and A was super independent.
When we landed it was -15F and OMG you guys. It was a level of cold I don’t know if I’ve ever experienced. Maybe on rare occasions in college. Despite suiting up (layered coats, mittens, hat, etc) just walking to get our rental car was a whole ordeal. I called the ski school and found out they were actually planning on suspending operations for today (Thurs) and they were super nice about letting us move lessons from today to Sunday.
Currently it is -29F (!!!) and the lifts are closed for at least the morning. But I’m feeling happy and grateful because a) we got here safely; b) the temps will be far better by mid-day tomorrow; and c) the ski school was so flexible.
And not gonna lie, I’m actually kind of excited for a lazy shut-in day today!!! We have board games, movies, easy access to food, etc – so I feel like this is best case scenario for the deep freeze.
