When chatting about what we would like to do during the summer Lindsey had mentioned taking her son Asher up to Snowbird for a night. Of course being the non-outdoorsy people we are Stella and I had never even considered doing something like that, and we really had no idea what fun things there were to do up there during the summer.
It was kind of expensive, but it was so much fun. Of course when we got there Stella started getting nervous about these so called "fun" activities that she would be expected to do. I promised her that I wouldn't make her do anything that I didn't think she would enjoy and she put her trust in me again, and she had seriously the best time on all the rides.
The first ride was the Mountain Coaster. It was my favorite. You can control your speed and it is so fun and such a pretty ride to as you enjoy the beautiful scenery. I loved it. And after a nervous Stella finished it the first time she said she wanted to do it again and she LOVED it! (Make a not of Asher's glasses that Stella borrowed, she got lots of compliments on them and she looked pretty cool the whole day.)
We then went on the alpine slide. Which for me was really overcoming some serious fears because I am totally afraid of ski lifts. I seriously can't believe that they are such a huge part of skiing and people just get on them all the time and don't think about how scary and unsafe they are. The ski lift to get to the alpine slide didn't even have a bar in front to "hold" us in. It would get so high off of the ground and I hated it, however it was better then hiking up the hill so I sucked it up and played it cool.
Another brave Stella moment was going on the Zip line ride. Since it was basicially just a fast ski lift, it pretty much scared me too. Especially when we sit at the top and wait to go, but when it was moving it was just fun and we loved it.
It was in the hotel that Lindsey and I started to really notice how Asher and Stella fight like siblings. Stella is always bossing Asher around and Asher is always whining at Stella. They say each others names back and forth and it is kind of hilarious.
That morning our package included an amazing breakfast and then we were able to go on some more rides. We were pretty worn out and it was much hotter and busier so we did everything about once and then called it a day. Overall it was so much fun and full of so many great memories. We will never forget out first trip to Snowbird and we are so glad that Lindsey and Asher invited us along.
