As I cross the half century day mark on the slopes I had the opportunity to hit Crested Butte Resort this past weekend for Presidents Day Weekend. I enjoyed sharing this adventure with my cousins Kyle and Ian. It was an awesome road trip. I look forward to another road trip with these boys. Here are the pics of our mountain adventure. . .enjoy.

Looks like the snow was great.

Yes, yes it was. Always appreciate a nod to our pics like this reader sent us:

Loving the pics on the blog.

Thanks for sharing.

That why we started this blog; to share the adventure. Because I know, you can’t always make the trip like this reader . . .

Looks like I missed out on some good skiing!

No doubt. It was a fun one. Question from one reader . . .

How are you skiing?

Some days better than others, but grateful to be out in the mountains doing what I love. Surely, beats watching re-runs of Maury Povitch; any day. Received this one-liner from a day on the slopes with this guy:

Fun times and love it!

Thanks bud. I had a great day with you on the mountain.



It snowed last night, a tad today and more is on the way. Mammoth is still digging out from snow, like 8 feet of it last week. Conditions are great right now. Pretty much every lift and and run is open everywhere. Coverage is great with a very high snow quality in most places. With more snow predicted it’s only gonna continue to get better. Get out on the slopes and check it it.
