The real reason to get into the mountains: sheer beauty. Sometimes life just calls with responsibilities. It can range, but life will make its demands of everybody. So, for the past couple of weeks, Dan and I have been making do with “sanity skis” at the ‘Bou and biking to... Continue reading

Sometimes the weather dictates what you do. It's true from the ocean to the summit of Everest. We had been planning on doing Paiute Peak, spending the night, and then giving a snow climb up Crooked Couloir on Mt. Audubon a shot. However, when looking at the weather and seeing... Continue reading

It was a long weekend of work. Not that I’m complaining, really. As far as jobs go, we’ve got it pretty cush. Dan and I get the same schedule, we work four ten hour days, so we get three days off a week, and we get to spend all day... Continue reading

Storm over the divide. After much deliberation, the ski for our weekend was decided upon: Red Deer Mountain. It’s not actually a named peak, but it’s the other guard of Buchannan Pass, standing slightly taller than it’s much better known partner, Sawtooth. There was some storming going on, so we...

On top of St. Vrain Mountain. Well, as all know, bugs are incredibly easy to catch. No matter the nature of the bug, you must be wary of them, for if given the chance, they will infect you. The bug has got us. It was back to work for one... Continue reading

It’s Tuesday, the 14th of May, and we have yet to go on a big spring ski. In fact, we have yet to do really much of anything since the Grand Traverse, and we’re probably a bit ornery for that fact. After the Grand Traverse, my body we tired, tired,... Continue reading

Well, there we were again. The Elk Mountain Grand Traverse seems to have this effect on some folks. There are some who do it once, and that’s enough. There are others who do it, and come back again and again. I should have known that we’d be in the later... Continue reading

Well, life has once again become hectic - it has a nasty habit of doing that, doesn’t it? Part of the chaos come from the place where Dan and I work being sold, but I’ve had more than enough of work as of late, so maybe that will be touched... Continue reading

Change is hard. Humans are creatures of habit, and asking us to change our precious routines can be like asking a charging moose to just stop. I, like most, feel good about change when I’m behind the steering wheel with my foot on the gas peddle initiating the change. However,... Continue reading

We’ve had a few tired days...Thursday and Friday we managed a few hours up at Eldora each day, but nothing too exciting. (Hey, it’s Eldora, with about three runs open. But we did check out Bunny Fair Bowl - sick, dog!) Saturday we were a little overly ambitious hoping to... Continue reading

Haha...there's a reason the locals call Eldora Windora...

I love that you can identify the clouds! I almost took a photo of the clouds we saw on the way back from our race today, because I was sure that you could identify them for us.

Hey Sharon! I'm still kinda figuring this blog thing out. Yes, we are all really hoping that the current trend is correct - the graphs are saying this week, we should be noticing a swing in the temperature for the colder! Hip deep! I think I've only skied hip deep once, and it was amazing - so here's to hoping. I'm sure we were quite entertaining to watch on the slopes at any rate. Only racers do drills

I’m not going to say I was super amped when Dan suggested at 10 pm last night that we head up to A-Basin for the 7 am start of a race. Heck, the Irwin race just got canceled, I was tired, and we had yet to do an actual skin.... Continue reading

This is Elaine, the other half contributing to this blog. This was supposed to be IT! The year! I wanted to go skiing everyday, and I had visions of powder runs dancing in my head. After the two of us, well, I wouldn’t call it competed, per se, but completed... Continue reading
