Crested Butte Sees First Snow

Not really much of a story (or much of a snowstorm), but I need to start posting on this site occasionally. I mean, I have been so incredibly lazy that I have got to get going. Thanks to our three readers for sticking around.

This makes those extra four reps on the leg press worth doing:

Skiers and snowboarders start your engines! Well not quite - but as you can tell from the photo below, winter is indeed coming. The folks at Crested Butte woke up this morning to a dusting of snow, marking the first real signs of the upcoming winter. So grab those newly printed buyer's guides from your mailbox and start figuring out which planks your going to be riding this year. Judging by the looks of it, snow appears to be on its way sooner than later...

I have been in the gym six days this week which is six more days than I spent all last year. I have my new Nordica Zeros and my even newer Nordica Hot Rod boots to break in. Two months and A-basin and Loveland will be open with WROD.

Yeah snow! Crested Butte is great in the smaller ski area realm. Gotta love Kebler Pass. I want to go up there this weekend from the North Fork Valley. It's just a hop and a skip from here. All the rain this year have really been a boom for the mushrooms up Kebler. Been going up there and picking allot of chantrelles and bollites. Last year I went over to Vail and had a great time for one weekend. I guess they are about ready to start selling passes there. I got an awesome deal for the weekend at the East West Resort at Beaver Creek. I was amazed at what I got for the price. Me being the poor ski bum that I am.
