Monday night (September 30th) we squeaked in a twelfth consecutive month of skiing in Colorado with about three hours to spare. Barring injury (knock on so much wood) the next ten months should be relative gimme’s. At the beginning of the month we decided we didn’t want to do Saint Mary’s two months in a row and we held out until the last possible minute hoping to slide on some man-made goodness. Fortunately for us Loveland and A-Basin began making snow in late September. So to the hills we went, in quest of three-day old refrozen, ungroomed, man-made ice crystals.
I swear I saw pictures of snowmaking on the website!
Diesel, Silo, and Betsy back in their element… Man made ice, that is.
While we’ve certainly gotten radder on other occasions … we’ve never been more stoked to ski.
One lap was enough. But we’re definitely first in line for opening day!
