When Winter Arrived

Winter has been teasing us all fall. We’d get a taste during a pleasurable snowstorm, but then the storm would be followed with more than a week of dry skies warm temperatures. While some people soaked in the sepia hues that surrounded us, I felt that non-winter lasted particularly long this year.

But, then, the forecast read this:
Weather forecast for Crested Butte

Winter had arrived, and it arrived with a fury. We couldn’t have been happier :)

On Friday, after dealing with the first-day-of-the-season-my-snowmobile-is-a-pain-to-start scenario, I headed into the Crested Butte backcountry with Alex, Ben, and Kyle to check out what Winter had delivered

We found it was good. Alex:

Fruita 18 Road 11.7.14

Last weekend, we headed to Salt Lake City to visit friends and with perfect riding conditions, we decided to get the bikes out along the way. It had been several years since either of us rode at Fruita’s 18 road, which perfectly suited our needs for some short rides in the middle of a quick road trip. I forgot just how good the riding is there. Some of the newer trails, in particular, are a blast to ride and take some of the pressure off the original classics. 18 road features “flow trails”, before the term was coined.

As I write, flakes are flying outside my winter. With days of prominent snow in the forecast, it seems that Winter has finally arrived.

Needless to say, we are dancing around, celebrating the snow. We are HAPPY :)

While we wait for the snow to gather before we make some real turns, we’ve been busy with many different 14erskiers projects. One of them, is our presence on Pinterest.
