After long winter, spring skiing hits the spot

After long winter, spring skiing hits the spot

By Tom Boyd

March 24, 2010 —  The sun was out, Laughing Bones was absolutely rocking the live music, and the Red Tail deck at Beaver Creek seemed like the best place in the world one could possibly ever be.

That was last Sunday. My hope is to experience more Sundays of that nature ... and by that I mean to get out and ski under bluebird skies the day after a snowstorm rolled through town.

It seems I'll have that opportunity.

Taste of Vail is on its way, along with Spring Back to Vail and the Vail Film Festival. Intermittent snow will be liberally sprinkled with warm, sunny days, and my abbreviated season (after an Olympic hiatus) looks like it will be a good one.

But allow me to get the picture across using video, rather than words ... this one, from March 19, says it all (I am biased, however. The lovely female skier in the video, the one who absolutely RIPS, is my sister :)

Uhhh, sweet cameras, I think we found our new marketing idea. Just a few "pole" cameras and an average powder day....way to rip it up gang.

Didn't those guys play at the East West Resort at Bachelor Gulch last month, or am I thinking of another band. Can't tell, they all seem to look the same. They sounded like a garage band....which I like.
