Massive car wreck, then great skiing at Snowmass, then itís on to Taos!
March 15, 2008 —
March is a good month for road-tripping. Winter is long, the town begins to feel small to us locals, so my cure is to strap the boards to the truck and hit the road.
I’m in Snowmass (and/or Aspen, if you prefer) this weekend. Then it’s on to Taos this week, where they will be opening the mountain to snowboarders for the first time ever on March 19.
I’d like to revise that last statement to read: “March is a great month for road tripping IF YOU’VE GOT GOOD SNOW TIRES!”
I don’t want to become the “car wreck” guy, but it seems every time I hit the road I see all kinds of great carnage footage which requires posting on the net. Videos of the wreck, and of the skiing, are forthcoming, so check back to this blog in a few hours.
I arrived in Snowmass, good tires and all, yesterday. Today the skiing was fantastic, much as it was all over the state. I’ll get some vid up for ya to drool over, but in the meantime I’ve gotta go – it’s St. Paddy’s Day and I’d hate to miss my first green beer.
