January is the last month of fun....Rieko starts nursing school and I start working alot soon. In January we made it up to Big Bear and Mammoth twice. Despite a bad year for snow we were lucky to catch two small snow storms. Snowboarding is all about fun, food, family and friends. We enjoyed the snow with Rieko's friends from work on one trip and my family on another.

Dad skiing in the parking lot on his rental skiis. A few scratchs? NO problem!
Linda started this puzzle in Mammoth and in no time everyone was addicted to trying to finish it before we had to go home.
