Steamboat 4/5/09

05 Apr, 2009

It’s been a rough end of the week, so I took the last couple days to relax and chill.  Today I did make it up to the mountain to take some laps with Steph and Tj who had driven up from Summit County to ride for the day.

I took them to my favorite chair, Pony to see what goods could be found.  Today was Pony’s last operating day so bummed to see it’s being shut down with some good snow on it.   Pony has some really fun natural terrain to ride and some great tree riding.  It’s off the beaten path, which makes it great.

There was no missing our crew today, between my 686 monster jacket, Tj’s jussi jacket and Steph’s nikita face jacket…we were bright.

It’s been snowing on and off this week, even today there was leftover powder goods to be found in the trees.  Definitely managed to get a couple powder turns in while just roaming around.
