Colorado :: Day 5, Boulder





Colorado :: Day 3, Keystone

Day 3 left us with total bluebird conditions at Keystone, making for an awesome last day of riding. We went back to Fiesta Jalisco for more carne asado, eating quantities that impressed even myself.





Colorado :: Day 2, Keystone

Day 2 was at Keystone, which is one of my favorite resorts. It was still dumping and we found some stashes in the trees. They have $5 cat rides, but with 50mph winds above the tree line, we didn’t bother. The Malolo is the greatest board ever when there’s soft snow.

Colorado :: Day 1, Breckenridge

Flawless start to the trip: Some serious precision packing and weighing got all of our stuff on the plane with only having to pay $15 for one bag. Then, we had booked a full-size rental car because everything was sold out, and a last minute call to my work travel agent got us an SUV so everything would fit easily. No problems with the flight, and Tara hooked up an awesome condo right at the mountain for cheap. And, the day we left Keystone got 10".

I’ve been wanting to check out Breckenridge since high school and somehow have never ridden there so we decided to spend day 1 there. It was dumping when we got there but the mountain kinda sucks because it’s really flat.

This turn from the trailer is one of the things I mentioned for the Blower book that summed up snowboarding for me:
