Wasserkuppe, Skiing park

I found Wasserkuppe skiing slopes about an hour and a half away from us and yesterday we decided to give it a shot.  We brought some snacks, waters, lots of extra clothing and our sleds that we imported from America.  I mention the sleds because most of the people were using the old school wooden ones that I thought were extinct 20 years ago.  We started the day with some sledding and on the second run down, Anton fell out of the sled and bleed from his lip.  Thankfully, no teeth were broken but he's got a nice fat lip.  A little bit later that we decided to go get skis. There was an hour long wait in line but we managed.  Andrei has gotten really good at skiing - he is able to slow down and make turns.  Ilya is really good for his first time on skis as well but he stops using my favorite method - sitting down on your bum :)  Anton was not impressed with skis at all but I am not giving up hope!  Enjoy the pictures ... all taken with my phone so not the best.

P.S.  Chris said that he will always be able to point out the Russians on ski slopes for their way too fancy clothing which I found really hilarious.  The people behind us in line to get the skis were Russians and I asked their help to translate something from German to Russian.  They were MEAN people.  Apparently, because we have 3 kids who all need skis they are going to be late for their ski school! 

P.P.S. As I am writing this, Chris was putting Anton to bed and called me up.  Yeah, seemingly Anton wasn't feeling well as he just threw up his entire lunch.  We'll trying skiing with him again when he is not bleeding or puking.
