Skiing December 2012 with Mad and Raisa

Back in Colorado for a few days of skiing before the trip back to my village to delivering the big news. On this trip is Mad you may remember her she joined me last year skiing.

 Last year she only ate donuts and soft serve ice cream. This year she added Mac and Cheese to her diet. Also joining me is Raisa from my sailing trip last yearRaisa is in Colorado investigating the drug trade now the pot is legal Raisa is thinking of opening up a head shop.

So far we have skied one day at Copper Mountain and the snow or lack of snow is just as bad as last year. There are only a few runs open so it feels like we are skiing in circles.

Day two Mad, Raisa and I skied Winter Park, what a difference a day can make. It snowed all day what an adventure we had. Both Mad's and Raisa's skiing skills improved in just a few hours. By the end of the day we were all beat we had skied about 20 miles.

Day three still snowing at Winter Park over 8 inches of fresh powder, and it was still coming down. Ross and Sue joined us on their snow boards. First run of the day they took us down Mary Jane a very hard blue / black full of fresh powder and moguls. Reisa took to the run like a bat out of hell. Mad and I were a little more conservative. Another great day, I think Raisa would still be skiing if it was not for the lifts closing down.

On my way out of Town I dropped the girls off at Red Rocks, the Imagine Dragons Concert.

I am off for a trip back to Africa, I plan to tour Senegal before heading back to Botswana to give the elders the big news in person and take one last tour of the beautiful country.
