We were supposed to meet our friend Helen at 10 a.m. on Dec. 15 at Sunlight Mountain to ski the nine inches of new snow. It was the Sunday after we came back from Argentina. It had just started snowing a lot on Dec. 9, the day before we came back, and after a pretty warm and dry beginning of the ski season, we were excited to be coming back to white mountains and valleys after 95 degree weather with 85 percent humidity in Buenos Aires.

As you drive west from the Denver area along I-70, you pass a lot of ski resorts. If you go far enough west and look to the south, just as you pass the tiny ranching community of DeBeque, you’ll spot Powderhorn Mountain Resort, carved out of the side of Western Colorado’s majestic Grand Mesa.

”The snow gods must really like you, ” my husband laughed early one morning last week. We’d awakened to snow, so almost before he was out of bed, he was checking the CSCUSA snow report on his phone. “Fifteen inches at Aspen/Snowmass he announced. I pumped my sleepy arms in the air.
Truth be told, I wasn’t skiing that day, but I was driving to Aspen to start a three day Clendenin Ski Method ski camp. As I pulled into Aspen on Sunday afternoon, snow was piled everywhere. I put on my boots and went for a stomp in whatever untracked snow I could find. It was bitterly cold, but who cares? After a rather long, extended Indian summer, it had snowed and really snowed. Winter came just in time.
