Another Colorado Ski Weekend

Lafayette, CO - This next group of photos are from the last weekend in February. We had another wonderful ski weekend with lots and lots of visitors. First Jennifer and Brian drove in from Moab to stay with us. Then Dave, a friend of ours from California now living in Washington D.C., let us know that he and a large group of friends were staying over in Breckenridge. And finally Jovie decide to come up from Boulder and join us for a day of turns.

It was Saturday at Breckenridge when we all tried to meet up and failed miserably at sticking together, especially when a massive storm moved in and brought the visibility down to a near white out. That and the Olympic hockey finals sent most folks scurrying towards the lodge.

Most of these photos come from an epic Sunday at Keystone, where we took the D.C. gang on a tour of the wonders of the Outback. Twelve some-odd inches of fresh powder combined with cold temps and brilliant sunshine. You can't ask for much more than that! All these photos where taken by Laura and crew.

 Most of the group at Breckenridge:  Russ, Brad, Jovie, Suwei, Karl, Dave, Brian, Jennifer, and Sean.  I think Scud was already lost by this point.

Great photos by Laura and crew

Now here is something I don't usually post, videos. Scott (aka Scud) had a fantastic little helmet cam that he was using to film folks making their way through the trees of the Outback. I'm posting two of them, one because Suwei's in it and the other because it makes me laugh every time I see it.

The first one shows Scud trying to keep up with Suwei through the trees.

This next one I find absolutely hilarious. I call it, Scud vs Tree. "Let's go do this!"

Thanks to Laura for letting me steal the photos. Thanks to Scud for sharing the videos. Thanks to Dave for introducing us to his friends. And thanks to the rest of the gang for making it a very fun weekend.
