Steamboat 3/21/08

21 Mar, 2008

Managed to make it out onto the mountain today with co-workers. It was a bit overcast and cloudy with some sunshine on the lower mountain. I was riding with Paige, Rochelle, Scott and Michelle for the afternoon.

Since it’s still a busy week in town with tourists, I did happen to get a good 20 shots of one-pieces.

Got this classic shot of me totally stoked in the lift line next to one!

Here’s Paige showing off the mountain and getting ready to drop in

We headed up the gondola, then rode down to Storm Peak which the chairlift ride was a bit cold and windy on the way up, made our way over to Sunshine and took some laps there before heading down to the terrain park to finish off with a lap through the halfpipe.

On the way down from Sunshine to Storm Peak face, cut into some trees and found a tiny bit of powder left to make turns through.

You know you had a good day when you take a lap through the halfpipe and see a guy sporting a banana costume.
Banana dropping in!

Today was my last day of work before vacation. Tomorrow I’m in Steamboat, then Sunday I head down to Summit County for a couple days, then onto Aspen for a couple days, then back to Steamboat.
