I haven’t skied with my boys, ages 8 and 10, in a while. They’re either in a lesson or I’m too busy filing a story. So this afternoon was a true gift. Iden and Aren followed me up the Centennial Express at Beaver Creek and we skied over to Bachelor Gulch.
These are spring conditions — packed snow at the top, slush at the bottom. But in between it’s amazingly skiable, semi-powdery snow.
I shot this video as we made our last run to Beaver Creek Village, where they have an interesting tradition of serving fresh chocolate chip cookies to skiers at 3:30 p.m. Who can say “no” to that?
We’ll be back on the mountain today if the weather holds up, which it’s supposed to. It’s supposed to be sunny with a high of 39 degrees. And tomorrow — more snow!
