Vaseline's Dry Skin Patrol spent the weekend in Aspen, Co for Winternational. Our mission in Aspen was to rescue dry skin!!!!! We did put our skin to the test as we hit the slopes at Snowmass on Saturday. I'm not used to the dry weather in Aspen so I wasn't sure how my skin would do without the humidity that I am used to in Asheville, North Carolina.
I am here to brag that my skin did amazing. I put on my lotion after my shower and again before we hit the slopes a couple of hours later. Even my hands stayed moisturized the whole time we were at about 10,000 feet up. I was surprised because I wasn't always wearing my gloves!!!
It is so awesome to be traveling with the Dry Skin Patrol doing extreme cold weather things as we put not only our skin but ourselves to certain challenges. It's wonderful being a part of a team. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I'm so blessed that Vaseline picked me to be a part of the adventure.
Skiing is a lot harder than you'd think. I actually went into this thinking that maybe I'd pick it up and it would be something that I could enjoy with my family since we live in the mountains near ski resorts. Yeah, that's not going to happen. I cannot ski. Really I cannot. I'm okay with admitting that I cannot ski. It's just not my thing. I'm so glad that blogging is my thing though. ha ha Blogging actually got me on the slopes to begin with. Lets not forget the marathon last weekend in Philadelphia and the Polar Bear Plunge on New Years Day on Coney Island. Extreme weather activities I tell you!
I'm glad that Vaseline thought of everything down to our thermal underwear to keep us warm.
I want to shout out to the booth that talked and handed out lotion samples all weekend!! I hope that you met some interesting people as you told all about this awesome lotion!! I'm sorry we weren't able to stay but a minute!! Great job on helping make the goal of 1 million good skin days!!!!!
Okay, okay.... I will start adding the pictures. I will not be sharing the 400+ pictures from the trip, just some of the awesome ones. Well, they were all awesome. How about the ones I think you will enjoy seeing. Okay, I narrowed it down to 64 so enjoy!!!!
Yes, I will be blogging about how wonderful Aspen was this weekend and how amazing Vaseline is and how the Dry Skin Patrol ROCKS!!! Go TEAM VASELINE!!!!!!
