This year Colorado has been having a very dry winter. Not much snow in the mountains. This doesn’t make for good skiing. Last year we had a record season – but Kirk and I were super busy at work and were only able to make it up once. This year is looking to be busy at work as well but I’m determined to sneak away and go skiing a few times. I can’t let my ski pass go to waste again!
On Saturday I went skiing with my parents (Kirk had to go into work and is also recovering from bronchitis). The mountain just had a foot of snow in the past day – so the conditions actually weren’t too bad. I found plenty of places with nice soft powder.
One of the funnest parts of the drive up (because the traffic is not fun and neither is getting up super early) is looking for animals on the side of the road. I usually only spot a couple big horn sheep – but this day we saw a whole herd of them!
My parents skiing down the mountain. You can’t miss their flourescent yellow coats. Not very fashionable – but super easy to spot!
