My calendar says that spring starts on March 20th. But, I know differently. Spring started on March 9th, at Copper Mountain.

Snow and Sun

As I’m sure you know, it’s been snowing– a lot. In fact, about a foot of fresh snow fell that weekend, from Friday to Saturday, providing amazing mid-winter conditions across Colorado. And then, just as surely as we all had to change our clocks on Sunday morning, we sprang ahead, not just in time, but also in temperature and season. Spring arrived on Sunday, with stunning blue skies, a late rising sun, and, by afternoon, amazing sun-softened conditions. (continue reading…)

Somewhere out there in the murkiness, in the vertigo-inducing clouds, was the powder day of a lifetime.

It was January 14 at  Arapahoe Basin, in the midst of the biggest snowstorm of the season to date, which would leave Summit County with triple-digit snow totals by the time it moved out.

If only I could see it. Riding the lower slopes was like skiing by brail. I knew everything underfoot was untouched powder, but to ski the upper half of the mountain? Terrifying. Montezuma Bowl? Out of the question.

Sensory deprivation is not a good thing on skis. Goggles froze only slightly more quickly than toes in these conditions. After four runs off Pallavicini Lift, it was beer o’clock.
