TR: Sunshine Pow Time (17 Oct 2013)

(Last Updated On: October 21, 2013)

Frank and I had a trip planned to Denver for some family gatherings. We were to leave Thursday afternoon. But, the weather was looking ultimately blue and perfect for Thursday. I wondered if I could possibly squeeze in a ski before we left. Frank couldn’t join, but things fell together when Ethan gave me a call on Wednesday evening.

We were skinning by sunrise. Always a beautiful time.

Ruby living up to its name.

Surprised not to see anyone up in our zone, we immediately went for a favorite.

After booting up the couloir, Ethan dropped in first, spewing powder everywhere 🙂

But there was plenty of skiing to be done after the couloir.

Lap two took us higher to another coulior, like a canvas waiting to be tracked. Look familiar? I was just there a few days earlier.

Me dropping in, tracking the canvas.

Me on the apron.

It was so good, we couldn’t help ourselves. Despite being pressed for time, we went back for yet another third lap. Ethan.

The word “perfect” comes to mind. The only thing more perfect would be to have the day never end.

It’s winter. Enjoy 🙂

    Wow. Steep stable pow – super sweet! Thanks for sharing the stoke.

    Will we see you and Frank at Loveland for some early season turns?

    Possibly, Brennan. It’s a bit strange that Loveland gets 3 days here but CB passholders get none up there. We’ll have to see how the snowfall goes. If we continue this strong start, we may not need the sample Loveland’s WROD.

    Gah, y’all are killing me. That looks like fantastic snow! So jealous, we don’t have much in AK yet . . .

    Slow start in AK last year, too, JP, but it seemed like you recovered nicely. It will come. Meanwhile this great early season might doom us all winter around here, now that it’s been dry for a while.

Got something to say? We love your comments!
