How's the Snow in Colorado?

By March 20, 2009

In one word - great! Although it's been some time since the last significant snowfall (as best I can tell, it hasn't snowed in the Vail Valley or Summit County regions in over ten days), the snow at the resorts has been excellent over the past week. While it's true you need to do a little thinking before pointing the board downhill (slopes that face south are awesome early in the day, while northern facing slopes hold better snow after lunch), the skiing and riding in Colorado right now is nothing short of fantastic!

After great days spent riding Beaver Creek (COOKIE TIME!), Breckenridge (Neat town with an authentic vibe), Vail (massive and impressive), and Keystone (in my humble opinion, THE spot for families), my legs are begging for mercy, but my brain is begging for more. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, including this trip. We'll be heading back down to Denver tomorrow afternoon for the flight back to the East Coast. Check back all next week as I compile reviews, thoughts, and photos of my travels through Colorado this past week!

P.S. - Coming next week as well, a recap of the incredible wisdom of our waiter Jay from our meal at Cafe Alpine in Breckenridge on Thursday evening! Trust me - this dude was the man...

Jim, unlike my dear brother, you’re lucky! We got dumped on today, about 2 feet in places (the kind of day when the boys tell me to take my snorkel skiing with me!). It looks like 2-4″ tomorrow and then another good dump on Thursday! Yay, Winter’s back!!
