Half day of work today. Spending it with Larry on the local trails where it's dry & warm.
Heading to Vail tonight where they've gotten 2 1/2 feet of Colorado's finest over the past few days with another foot expected this weekend.

DGC...are you listening :)

Whoa there Tap. This ain't gonna be my first ski trip of the season. I've already rounded first.
But unfortunately I'm locked away in the office during the week (but I arranged to have this coming Monday off).

Now if I could only get Larry & Darren off their butts to come join me :D

Get that man a snorkel !!!!!!!!!!!

I've had days like that. But they're few & far between.

I'm trying to convince my Mrs to leave work early so we can get on the road by noon. Most recent forecast from NWS is calling for a foot with Blizzard conditions over Loveland & Vail passes.

PS. Darren is afraid of snow. Too many years in SoCal.

tell Darren that riding deep pow just might be the perfect compression/rebound ratio.

tell him his bud Tap says so. :D

(and.....toughen up, buttercup!! 1 run and you'll be warm!)

You're gonna love it - had to work the snowblower for an hour this morning to clear the new 12" off the driveway. We're in a lull right now, but the report is for another 10-12" tonight. It's supposed to start around noon. Main Street Frisco (right outside the window) currently has 5 foot high plow mounds. Looks like another winter of '96. The bikes are in the workshop hibernating.

Looks like the 96mm waisted Chiefs are coming out tomorrow !!!!!!!!!!!

And the snorkel :D

And it's sunny, dry and in the 40s here in Loveland. I love Colorado.

Hmmm, clearly, a few of us FR CO dwellers need to hit the powder in the morning and the trails in the afternoon just so the warm-weather homers don't start getting too uppity...
Man, THOSE are the days! I did that once, Apex in the morning in short sleaves and shorts, and Keystone in the afternoon.

Yup, the boy who grew up in Northern Maine and is no stranger to -40 F is definitely afraid of the cold. :rolleyes:
