BreckenFRIDGE

Well, day number something since we landed in Breckenridge, and WOO HOO!  We have been having a blast.. Today was the exception… Last night it dropped to -17 degrees and our water froze up, despite my proactive work. insulate hose twice, space heater in wet bay where the tanks are, and temperature gauges in those bays so that I can tell if it gets too cold. Well, it wasn’t enough. Long story short, I will be buying another water hose and make sure it is just long enough to get to the bay, and insulate/heat tape the entire hose. It will be a process, but necessary. and it is -8 right now at 9:00 pm

But that is enough of the trials and tribulations. Today was EPIC… the sun came out about 10, and we made it to Keystone by 10:30.. on the mountain by about 11:30 and WOW… The snow was spectacular, the sun was out, and we stayed warm with our 5 layers of clothing… The skiing was the best we have had since we have been here. We even bounced through the “bumps.”

For those not familiar, skiers and snowboarders can find runs that have not been groomed by machines, and in the process create a LOT of “bumps” where the snow hills twist and turn, creating one hell of a way to get down a hill. Now, if you have short skis they can be fun.. but I ski on long wide 185’s which are quite long by any stretch. and when it comes to shaped skis, it makes them very fast but not maneuverable on “bumps”… but fun anyhow. Only a couple of “holy shit” moments.

But the rest of the day? Flying 2 inches off the ground in some very sweet snow.

Below is the view from the lift that is open

So today was a GREAT day, working on more.. Tomorrow? Hoping for more of the same.. will see. But the bottom line? We truly love the life we are living…

Life is good

life is good skiing
