Ted and Eric -- Utah 2004

Ted Nygreen went with Eric Monberg to a "long weekend" at Alta, March 25-27, 2004 (without Nancy and Wendy).

We joined Tim Harris, who does this trip every year with family (sister Wanda) and friends, this year Lance Long and Pam.

In this group photo, the waiter at the Peruvian Lodge placed himself in the back center of our photo.

As you can see, the first day was warm and sunny. Then to our surprise, we had a white-out day with 14" of new snow, followed by overnight and more snow on day 3.

It was glorious powder, and Lance rented special powder skis for the occasion.
