Well the end is near. Powderhorn closes next weekend and I've gotten in 21 days of glorious skiing--16 of them at our own little ski resort. I've added to my list of black runs skied at Powderhorn and other resorts:
Powderhorn: Racer's Edge, Showdown, Equalizer, Upper Snowcloud when bumped out, Bear Claw, Diversion, Wonderbump and Cow Camp. Snowmass: The Edge. This was a great accomplishment for me to ski a black run at a bigger ski resort because I felt like I was really accomplishing things. The Edge is a great, groomed black at the top of the High Alpine lift at Snowmass. It's wide open with only 2 fairly steep walls but it gives you a super long run if you ski from the top of the High Alpine all the way back to the Alpine Springs lift via "The Naked Lady" run.
Saturday we headed up to the 'horn for 1 last day of skiing together. There were 11 inches of new powder and there was a gorgeous bluebird sky overhead. Here are some shots of us on Diversion and Hooker (the BF on Hooker). What a great ski season!
Here we are headed up the West End lift for our final run. We'll be back next year though--better than ever!
