I got late into Denver last night from SIA, but I had planned to ride when I got back so today was a hit up Breck day with Tom. I was pretty tired from SIA and missing almost a week of riding but made it up on the slopes super early.
We left Denver around 6:15am to a fresh coat of snow in Aurora at a friends house. It was a pretty slow drive with a couple wrecks already on the road. I’ve never had to do the weekend commute to the mountains from Denver…and I was amazed by how many cars are on I-70 to head up to the mountains. It’s like ski/snowboarder rush hour traffic.
The morning started out great with the clouds leaving and bluebird skies coming out. Eventually the clouds came back, plus winds and it was pretty cold throughout most of the day. Everytime on the chairlift I made sure to wear my face mask.
Ended the day in early afternoon so we could make it back to Denver before the traffic begain. It was a good choice cause on the drive back to Frisco, cars were lined up heading to Denver.
Looking forward to finally heading back to Steamboat tomorrow.
