I took these photos back in spring of 2005, on our last trip to Brianhead, Utah. We used to go every year back in the late ’80s/early ’90s… probably 5 or 6 years straight. This last trip was extra fun because I took Lauren and Melanie along for their first time there. The girls took some snowboarding lessons, and my dad and I had some fun riding the slopes together.
Horst loved to snowboard, but unlike most skiers-turned-snowboarders, he still enjoyed skiing as well. So, he would rent a board on a day he would spend boarding. He definitely held his own on the slopes, and even though he fractured his ankle once while doing it a few years before this trip… he still got back out on the board.
Happy Birthday, Papa. We all miss you and love you so much.
