It's early, but it's still skiing
October 27, 2007 —
There's barely enough snow to make it happen, but that's what made it fun.
My sister and her friend Travis decided to do a little backcountry skiing this weekend near Shrine Pass (or Vail Pass, if you prefer), and although they were hardly waist-deep in powder, conditions were pretty darn good, she reports, for this early in the season.
It just goes to show ya that anytime of year is a good time of year to get outside in Colorado. There's something special that sends a thrill through the body on that first occasion of the year when the skis (or snowboard) make contact with the snow and you begin to move downhill.
It's not the kind of skiing that would satisfy a mid-season appetite, but the key is to enjoy it no matter what.
And there's a lot more of it to look forward to.
