    Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

    I often tell people that “I’ve been on skis ever since I could stand up on my own.” In France, schoolchildren are given 2 weeks off around February and many families zoom off to the ski slopes. My family was no different, and so every year we would head to some of our favorite resorts in the Alps and ski to our little hearts content, eating hefty cheesy meals after our exhausting days. When I moved to the States though, that opportunity wasn’t so readily available to me, so whenever it presents itself I jump on it.

    This past holiday break I went to visit my parents in Seattle, where they’ve recently moved to, and we jogged up the forested canyon to Steven’s Pass, a ski resort within the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Our second day, we had some of the most incredible weather, paired with fresh powder snow—if these photos don’t make you want to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, go sledding, or simply get out in the snow, I don’t know what will!
