Ski Like a Local at Eldora

by Guest on Feb.10, 2013, under General

This blog comes to CSCUSA from Dan Rabin, local blogger and contributor and Rocky Mountain Reporter for Celebrator Beer News.

Falling is part of skiing, and while the twitter-verse and face-spaces are full of photos of all the glorious powder falling in Colorado, I thought I’d change it up a bit with some photos of crashes. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you: Augerfest, February 2013. Enjoy!

Hornblower and International, from the top of Challenge Mountain, and the beginner area behind Indian Peaks Lodge opened.
