Pocket-sized Pat's Peak
On Friday the PTO at Sophia's school arranged a skiing outing at Hirvensalo. I rode a city bus out to meet the students at the ski slope. The top picture is my view of the ski slope behind a grocery store. There were no chair lifts, just a J bar. The PTO cooked sausages for the kids. One friend pointed out that it is common for ski slopes to have a spot for an impromptu cookout. You just carry a package of sausages with you. Can you imagine if we pulled sausages out of our fanny packs at Pat's Peak! Sophia had a wonderful time and her friend Emilia skied for her first time.
