Colorado – Day 6

I’m going to stop blogging about sleep. Let’s leave it at I can’t wait to get into my own bed. Today will be our last boarding day at Loveland….for this trip. However, neither of us are moving terribly fast this am. 

According to back home the east coast has more fresh snow than we have here. Pow pow day at Wachusett!

  
Here’s our forecast. It will Spring boarding today and it looks like we are getting out of Dodge before it turns into a giant slush fest…rain tomorrow.

  

The pass was closed due to Avalanche work, not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. In any event we got within a 1/2 mile of the tunnel and we hung out for 20 of so minutes. Once the road was reopened we were at Loveland 5 minutes later. We managed to get into the Basin lot and boothed up, headed for tickets and then # 2 to #4…as usual. 

Condition were good by east coast standards, but it was a bit chunky by mountain standards. We didn’t let that stop us from getting in a few good runs. The weather went from hot to cold very quickly and it was back to blowing ice cubes at the top in no time. Even with the parking lot full it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. 

Here’s a pano shot of the upper half of #4.

Rad boy!

  

After a few more runs we headed back to the hotel to clean up and start packing.

Check out the plate.

  
On 70 heading to Frisco for dinner we stopped at a scenic area. While we were hanging around enjoying the view a total stranger walked up and offer to take a photo. I’ve already said it, everyone we had an interaction with were very friendly.
