The endless winter continues to roll on here in Colorado. Another 8-12" of powder fell in the last 24hours bringing our unofficial (we stopped counting last weekend) season total to over 600". For Colorado, this amount of snow is nearly unheard of. For me, its been amazing to have been here for this historic season.
I met up with Giri at Loveland Pass around 10am today. The weather was pretty much ideal. Cool; but not cold, snowing steadily and no, I repeat no, wind. We managed to catch a few rides up the pass today; but we weren't in any hurry. It was kinda nice to be able to feel like we didn't have to hurry since the pass was relatively quiet. We ended the day with a 25-minute hike out to a high spot just before Idiots Bowl and rode some mellow pow down some 1500 vertical to the road. It was a great day to be in the mountains...but then again, when is it not? Thanks for looking. PB.
