Took what will likely be our last trip of the season. It was beautiful as always, mixed clouds and sun in the morning and a blizzard as we left. It was perfect. Just the yellow ducky today. Had some people from Liberty ski company join us. It's been a great season, probably start snowing again in a few months.

New sticker says it all.

Yeah, with the new snow I had to go hike and ski around the house. It's fun to ski some powder this late in the season. Name:  IMG_20190521_110713.jpg

Heard it was snowing while I was gone and the forecast was even more snow so I just couldn't resist going out for some fun. We probably had over a foot of new snow. The visibility wasn't great but oh well. Hopefully get out again soon. The first day catting this season was December 1, that adds up to a solid 6 months of cat skiing.

My first cat trip of this season was October 15 2018! Hopefully we go this weekend and make this a record long year for me!

Went for a hike and ski on the East side of Vail pass. Guess the motorized side has been closed for a while. Oops. We got up to the first peak in the Gore range Uneva peak. Still lots of snow. But I guess we are only at 250% snowpack right now so makes sense that they would close the motorized side.

Does this adequately explain how I feel about the forest service and their signs?

Rode a chairlift without snow, in a t shirt, and looking at the Mississippi. I am so confused. Chestnut is the name.
