On Saturday morning, Michelle Obama, Sasha and Malia hit the slopes of Ski Liberty in Carroll Valley, Pennsylvania.

According to Del Waters at Ebony/Jet.com, “flanked by the secret service, the first lady, first daughters, and their friends spent six hours privately skiing at Ski Liberty one of three slopes located just a stones throw from Camp David.”

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.

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. The ski resort knew of the First family’s visit for a few days before, but were asked to keep it secret. Weimer also added that, “no slopes were shut down while the family used it, and they waited in lines like everyone else. It was like a VIP visit. .”

The group left around 3:30 p.m., heading the 30 minutes or so down to Camp David, where the president was to meet them today to spend Valentine’s Day together.
