About a week ago Kerry and I had an absolutely wonderful vacation out to Colorado to do some long overdue mountain skiing. Between the two of us we have been to a great deal of the ski resorts in CO at one time or another. This time we decided to go for a place neither of us had been to previously. So with John Denver tunes serenading the way, it's off to Aspen we went.
Snowmass was our base camp and despite the low snow winter, they had been blessed with slightly more than many of the other ski resorts. Our first days of skiing were filled with perfectly groomed runs and bluebird skies providing outstanding views of the surrounding mountains, including the iconic twin fourteener peaks of the Maroon Bells. The next few days were what every skier dreams of, 17 inches of new powder for laying our own fresh tracks!!
