Today was our first real powder day up at Winter Park. About 4 inches of new snow last night on top of maybe 6 more over the past couple days made for a nice fluffy surface for the first few runs — until all the holiday crowds showed up and the lift lines got clogged. I went up on my own at 8:30 and skied for a good two hours, then ditched the crowds and headed home. While I was skiing, they opened like 4 nice steep trails with a pretty good base of natural-only snow. Fun stuff.
Tomorrow night: R.E.M. concert at the Fillmore in Denver.
