Big White for Three Generations

blog-three-generations.jpg

Well the real countdown is on, only 47 more sleeps until we arrive in Big White.  The kids are looking at the Website daily and have never seen so much snow growing up in Australia, and this early in the season.  The list of what to take is already well on the way, and so are questions from the kids, “how long will it take to get there” asked Nick, he’s my impatient one.  “How long are the runs and are there any jumps” asked Bradley, “the trees are different to our trees at the snow” was another question from Bradley, he is my more inquisitive and observant one.  Dave (Dad) is the sensible one, he is thinking what games, music and movies can we load onto electronic devises, along with inflight entertainment, for the flight over, as the excitement rises for us all.  Me, I am thinking I might need a new pair of Ski Boots, should I buy them here or there??
