Steamboat 4/4/08

04 Apr, 2008

The season is winding down here in Steamboat with closing day on Sunday, April 6th so I made sure to hit up the mountain today for a ride break.

Beautiful day from the top of the gondola looking at Storm Peak

I managed to make it up and met up with Brent who is crashing at the house from Virginia. I took him on some tree runs and still found some leftover powder which is getting heavier to ride through but still fun.

My favorite: tree runs and powder to turn in

Brent wasn’t used to the trees/powder so it made him work a lot harder to make the runs.
I had to head back in to finish up work after taking runs with Brent. I rode down and took some laps through the halfpipe which is pretty much dead for the season. One wall is complete slush and the other is icy death. Today the halfpipe was busy since AASI was holding a level III exam.
