I LOVE this list! Though the black diamond ski trail is out for me… Let’s just say the only two skiing experiences I’ve ever had were, well, a slippery slpe for me…and the one with my hubby has become legend in our house… (Teaser: He and his sister told me the bunny slope was at the very top of the ski lift…)

Keep dreaming and achieving!!!

@Annah Elizabeth: I’m dreaming a bit with the Black Diamond run–as I have never skied before and I’m 41. I have snowboarded one time and that was a lifetime ago. But that is what life lists are all about.
