Skiing the "Boat"
I drove over the continental divide at Rabbit Ears pass to Steamboat Springs AKA "The Boat" on a snowy day.
The skiing was good but the visibility was much poorer than my previous day at Beaver Creek where I was able to ski gently down some of the famous Birds of Prey downhill course in the sunshine.
My legs are protesting at dealing with skiing in the powder at Steamboat even though it was the famed champagne powder that the resorts on the western slope are famous for and I spent an hour in one of the local natural hot springs that night. So I will have a day off tomorrow and relax.
