Skiing Colorado January 2012

 Pictures and Video Below

This the third time skiing this season. Finally some snow. Colorado has had one or the worst seasons when it comes to snow fall. This trip is the first where there is natural snow and good conditions. Some of the highlights:

  • Joining me on the trip - G d'B, Dandy Dan, and Big Ed 
  • Visiting Boulder and the Flat Irons 
  • Top speed skiing - G d'B 46.3 Miles per Hour Miles 
  • Skied - Over 100 miles Range of difficulty - Green to Black Diamonds ( Mostly Blue / Black) 
  • Spending 3 hours 25 minutes to drive 40 miles in bumper to bumper traffic 
  • Great Dinners - Ross and Sue prepared for us. 
  • Having Rita (The World Class Snowboarder) join us for two dinners. 
  • Big Ed used his new skis and boots 
  • G d'B used his new boots 
  • DUG used Big Ed's old skis as his new skis 

Three weeks until my next trip, need to play some poker to rebuild by travel fund and start planning my tour of Botswana for this summer. I am thinking mountain biking might be a great way to see the country I call home.
