My riding adventure today was with my buddy Andy and his co-worker who has stellar taste in snowboards.
Most of us were riding on our lunch break and decided to stick to lower mountain tree runs and just have fun.
I caught this photo of Andy charging down Vagabond. It was today’s Photo of the Day for Steamboat, perk of the job. I get to choose the photos, the spray one above was good but I liked the background on this one.
I’m not one of those super cool people who know the names of all the huts in Colorado, let alone on my own mountain. I hear about them but I’m up on the mountain to shred versus finding secret hut locations. Andy did take us to a run where we could check out the hut nearby. The makers of the hut were also there hanging out, props to them they put a lot of hard work into building it and it even had windows, coffee table and cool goodies to check out.
Its still early season here in Colorado and because our mountain isn’t that steep…early season means following trails to make sure you don’t get stuck in the flat spots within the trees. Alot of the video shows that riding, where it’s either a windy trail or having to follow to get to certain locations.
