    Cool Photo TR: Deepruary in Colorado 2.12-2.21

    The neverending storm
    2.12.10-2.21.10
    Sedgwick County, Colorado
    SheRa, Blurred, Vicious, nhtele, Dave


    Winter finally arrived in Colorado and it hasn't stopped snowing since around the 12th of February. Sedgwick county has been getting the short end of the snow totals this year, but this past week's moisture has really gotten things back on track. Storms have been rolling through almost perfectly. Two days of stormy weather followed by a day of bluebird. Set and repeat. The snow has been light as vapor and dry as dust of the dessert sand.

    Enough of the talk and on with the pics.

    Modes of travel....

    Sled:





















    Air:






    Skins:







    Skis:












    Sedgwick County represent!







    Blurred got tired and bored with going down the hill on his skis, so now he slays pow on his head:







    Heading back up for more:







    Haven't gotten so many face shots in one week in a long time. It felt good.


    nhtele getting it done:
















    Dave:


















    SheRa trying to stay afloat:








    SheRa jumping into the pool:






    .....and all smiles:





    Blurred digging a hole to China using his sled:





    SheRa coming up for air:


















    Back up through the snow ghost forest:












    Each day the skin track was filled in and the previous day's tracks were non-existent. It was like clockwork. Kind of like that perfect dream where it snows every night and the next morning is bluebird and bottomless. Repeat.







    Colin was stoked to finally ski some powder in Colorado this season:






































    Great week to be in Colorado. Hopefully it keeps up and the faucet stays on for a little while longer.

    Hard to say over the course of the week. This particular zone I would guess around 60"-70".


    jbski,

    I'm always down to braaaaap. Will be south of the border for the next 5 days or so, but when I get back I'm game. BTW, Baca county is the sickness. Keep it on the down low though.

    Dave's a hell of a photog (and all-around nice guy). He can even make me look halfway decent.

    Super fun day. Thanks again!

    Well played Dave. Great shots man. The snow was just waiting for my back to be unbroken, more or less anyway.
