Quite Weekend of Fun

The First Lady and daughters returned on Sunday night from a covert ski weekend near Camp David. On Saturday morning, Michelle Obama, Sasha and Malia hit the slopes of Ski Liberty in Carroll Valley, Pennsylvania.

They arrived at 9:15 am and the girls spent the morning with instructors. After lunch they skiied on their own and then went snow tubing.

They then traveled 30 minutes back to Camp David, where their father joined them for an overnight.

Anne Weimer, the resort's marketing director, said "We know how to handle things at the resort, so it wasn't a big show by any means. They had asked us to provide them a quiet family day, and that's what we did for them."

According to the Hanover Evening Sun , Weimar said it was the girls' first time skiing. No slopes were shut down and the first family waited in line with everyone else.
