  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. We packed up the kiddo and headed to Winter Park after lunch on Thursday and had a fluffy afternoon all to ourselves. It started snowing that morning so by waiting until later in the day we…

    Another weekday powder day for this lucky stay-at-home dad meant fresh tracks all morning! This Friday in the mountains started as they usually do: attempting to park at Winter Park’s Bench Lot, finding that I was just about 5 minutes late to getting a spot, then turning around to park in the lower lot and…

    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…

    An early start to a weekday after a powder day meant quiet, empty groomers and plenty of room to fly down the hill. On Monday we decided to get out early-ish and see what a weekday day after a powder day looked like. It was great! No lines and untouched groomers everywhere. I went out…

  5. Skied at Winter Park on January 7, 2018

    What a difference a snow storm makes! The night before Sunday our snow prayers were answered and Winter Park received 6 inches of new snow. We headed to Winter Park after lunch and found a close-up spot in the bench lot (that you can walk into the village from). There was no line at Zephyr…

  6. Skied at Winter Park on January 2, 2018

    The second day of the year was the first day of the ski season for us. After a couple weeks with new snow, it was feeling pretty rough. It’s been a mediocre season in Colorado. The further you go west the less snow you’ll find. Some mountains like Winter Park have been a bit more…

  7. Skied at Breck on March 5, 2016

    It had been quite a while since we went skiing. Nearly two full months, actually. And I feel like we completely missed out on the winter season here in Colorado. We visited Breck on Saturday and it was a beautiful, warm, sunny, spring day? The first weekend in March? Not good. Maybe I was just…

  8. Skied at Vail on January 8, 2016

    Our first day back on the hill this season was one of the biggest around: Vail! Rachel had never been to Vail and since we were in town for a conference, we made the most of a quiet Friday on the mountain. After a leisurely walk along the creek, we started at the Cascade Hotel’s…
