It finally snowed in Colorado. We thought the day would never come. Beaver Creek reported 10" at 5:00am yesterday, but by the time the lifts opened at 8:30, it was more like 14-15". Easily 16-20" in most spots up higher on the mountain thanks to wind loading and new trails being opened. After lapping all the good stuff for the first 2-3 hours, our crew of Jason, Jay, Mike, and I stopped to take some pictures to document the glory. This is what we came away with.
Jay enjoys skiing deep blower snow in his fancy vest.
Mike, with a little storm skiing action:
Jason wipes twice with the soft fluffy snow:
I'd say it was worth the wait, but I'd be lying. We should have been skiing this stuff two months ago:
Jason's lifestyle shot, waiting to watch Jay shred:
Where did Jay go?
Then the sun came out, and it got even better:
I love that you can see the determination in his eyes.... to make sure he looks good for the camera.
And a parting shot from the wonderfulness that is Beaver Creek. Til next time:
