Freezing cold the last day of March

At the top of the Ute Park lift it was freezing cold and snowing hard on us today. Everyone in town is thrilled to have a powder day this late in the season.

This is Bald Mountain, the one Jay did a hike-to ski run down last week.

Skiing on Nellie. Ski patrol was doing avalanche control up higher from where we were here. One bomb went off and sounded like it was right next to us. Very cool.

Jay skiing down Runaway Train.

In this video, Jay is skiing down Holy Cow, a double black run that is very steep at the end. The video didn't turn out very well and makes this look super easy. I like to wait on him to come down this one on Teddy's Way, which is right under lift 4 and people riding the left think I just finished the run before Jay. We have had people shout at me saying, "What's taking him so long?" One guy asked Jay, "Why did you let her beat you down?"

Here's a secret that you can't tell anyone. We decided to let the kids skip school this Friday to ski with us one last time this season. Then Saturday morning we will be getting up super early to drive to Oklahoma.
