Last run of the day in Beaver Creek, Colo.

By | March 6th, 2013

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!

    Hey! You and I were around Vail/Beaver Creek at the same time!
    Wasn’t yesterday beautiful? And really warm. I wasn’t even wearing my coat. Just the inner jacket.
    Travel tip: The George right before the covered bridge has a pretty good Shepherds Pie. It opens after 4:30/5pm and has comfy couches. Both at the eatery and around the pool table.

  • Thanks. Yes, the weather is great. We’re expecting snow tomorrow.
