Getting out has been difficult the last week and a half due to a number of things- some of them including visiting Frank’s father in the hospital shortly followed by a wicked flu/head-cold that infected both Frank and me. In fact, Frank was going to head Paonia to ride his bike this weekend, but the sickness got the better of him. Still, riding a bike was the last thing I wanted to do and I had plans to ski on Sunday. Thankfully, Adam was more than willing to join me!
We headed up Gothic toward Schofield with this chute high on our list of intentions.
The chute was definitely skiable, although thin in a few places. Still, we didn’t really like the looks of the snow there, figuring it would be firm and crunchy like toast. We decided to head toward the frequently wind-loaded Halloween Bowl with thoughts of recycled powder in mind.
Adam and I were elated and satisfied after going back for seconds. What a great November ski day!
Though Halloween Bowl will keep excellent snow for a while, we have our fingers crossed that the snow predicted in the forecast replenishes our other-wise diminishing supply. Pray for snow!
