  1. Skied at Winter Park on February 1, 2018

    Another snowy weekday in Winter Park! Both Rachel and I decided to pause work and take some afternoon laps.

    Finally! A true powder day with more than just rocks and grass beneath the fresh stuff! This was the best day I’ve had all season (I know, it’s only my 5th) and I know this day and the days after have been the best for everyone else, too. We finally had a sustainable base, around…

    This one was one of the most picturesque and best powder days I’ve ever seen on a weekend Sunday morning we woke up to a few inches of fresh powder and headed over to Winter Park as quickly as we could. We jumped onto the Zephyr lift as soon as it started and rode up…

    We had another great weekend of warm skiing, moderate crowds, and soft snow up at Winter Park Weekend mornings at the Winter Park base sometimes start with a sampling of free Noosa yogurt below the Zephyr lift. This morning was no different and we tried one of our new favorite flavors: pumpkin! This Saturday we…
