Well there I was again driving up to Breckenridge, dodging the giant potholes and listening to the weather forecast. The sun was shining but it looked like it was blowing hard and I had heard the ski patrollers say that the higher runs were vulnerable to being closed with the wind.
I enjoyed the morning but by early afternoon the giant wind devils were dancing on the tops and their baby brothers were appearing on the slopes along with occasional whiteouts from blowing snow.
So the upper lifts were shut down as forecast and I was back down on the lower slopes.
Still the wide groomed [ pisted ] slopes were ideal for blasting down GS style with hard rock on the earphones.
Another good day on the white stuff
