I managed to make it out on snow today for a couple runs here in Steamboat. We got an inch of snow overnight, but unfortunately it warmed up today which meant slushy snow and it was raining by the time I made it outside to make turns.
I am stoked on my new Smith Heiress goggles…meant for overcast days like today, tiny fit for my face and I’m good to go!
We took a couple laps and then got down to the bottom, ran into a co-worker Scott who also came here from Stevens Pass and we were like dang this is a total northwest day with the rain and fog on the mountain. I heard Stevens delayed their opening which is a bummer to hear, I hope snow comes for everyone to get out riding soon.
You get pretty spoiled living in Colorado, we get a lot of sun and I will say…one of the reasons I like living here is even when weather doesn’t cooperate we can make snow to make up for it.
Stoked the mountain is open and hopefully this rain turns to snow so we can continue shredding here. Now it’s time to head home, help with dinner and enjoy some laughs with friends tonight.
