What a difference from when I left Colorado, to Washington riding to back home to Colorado with the change in snow. Luckily for me my Washington trip offered up fresh snowfall when I was there but when I came back to Colorado the sun had been hitting the mountains with a warm spell. I finally made it out on the slopes today with Steve after catching back on work.
We made our way to Sunshine to just play around, bomb runs and I used the easy terrain to mess with the midnight in how it turns. The snow since I left has really softened up, it’s spring conditions on the mountain right now. Sunny, warm (like hoodie, t-shirt warm) and slushy terrain especially on lower mountain.
After Sunshine, we cut over to the terrain park to lap the park. I went through the mini park and Rabbit Ears Park, then hit up the halfpipe which was fun on the softer snow day but a lot warmer on lower mountain than up high with the winds keeping you cool.
