    Break Out the Sleds and let's go skiing: Another CO TR 10-21-06

    Yet another storm hammered CO friday night, and by saturday morning we decided to fire up the sleds and see what was out there. What we found was a supportive 3 foot base, with the top foot being rather blower pow. Every time we've been out this fall, I keep thinking that it's the best October day I've ever had, and yet it just keeps getting better.

    It feels good to be sledding again:




    Jon is a much better snowmobiler than I will ever be (of course, an '06 Arctic Cat M7 is a lot better than a '98 600RMK)


    Things were looking pristine:


    Sadly, on the way up for our first run, my trusty 5 year old Fritchis took a hit. The heel piece was a bit frozen, and I got a little aggro flipping the riser up, and the next thing I know, it's broken. No worries, nothing a little duct tape won't fix for the ride down:


    S Face, S Maroon, already looking filled in:


    The skiing was excellent, no matter what month, let alone October. Non-mag Luke:


    Non mag Susan:




    Non mag Jon:

    Kind of a short TR, but the photos tell the story: winter is here. We're going back tomorrow...

    I'm going to go cry in my beer, heard that will make it easier to swallow after looking at all of the CO October goodness of late.





    Nice work again... and again.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    I enjoyed looking at those pictures, I wish I lived in Colorado, wait I do, why haven't I been skiing, I love my newborn baby boy, but when his sister was born in Nov 2002 there was no early season snow and the Red Sox had just won the world series, this kid better step up soon.

    October? Looks more like January.

    Looks like you sled in the from the Marble side? Can't you not use sleds in the Gothic valley or am I completely wrong?

    You can sled up Gothic until the close the gate - sometime in November.
