July is the month I dedicate to summer. This is the month that summer truly happens in Crested Butte. In June, I’m usually still seeking out those last good bits of snow. But, when July comes and the wildflowers sparkle the landscape, it’s summertime.
August, however, is another story. By August, my mind has turned back to skiing. Here in Spain with temperatures nearing 100 degrees, I couldn’t be farther away from winter. But, that just makes me want winter even more. Reports of snow falling at higher elevations in Colorado earlier in the week spark this desire even more.
So, I start to seek out the snow stoke. Skiing isn’t really happening much in Colorado, but it sure is at our sister resorts down south. So, when I heard that Chris Davenport and Wendy Fisher were “stranded” at Portillo (Chile) with over 36 inches of snow, I became uber-jealous!
Hope the skies clear for them soon for them to enjoy some real pow!
