The 2007/8 Ski Season comes to an end

Yesterday, I woke up early and drove to Winter Park/Mary Jane for an 8" Powder Day. I arrived in the Challenger Lift parking lot at 7:30, took a nap until just after 8, then hopped on one of the first chairs up Mary Jane. Knee-deep powder at the top of Mary Jane Trail, fresh tracks the rest of the way down. Next run was Derailed into Short Haul. Then I hit the chutes off Challenger and called friends to see when they were showing up. It was 9:30 and everyone was still on their way. One friend recommended I head over to Vasquez Cirque and Eagle Wind lift. 3 runs of knee-deep, fresh-track face shots and I was spent. I skied to the bottom of Mary Jane for some lunch and a beer.

As I was entering the bar, everyone showed up and I changed my plans to join them on their first run. 2 more hours of powder on Eagle Wind and it was (finally) time for lunch at 1:30. After lunch, Outhouse, a tree run near Challenger Lift and Bluebell to Corona Way back to Snow White. It was 4:00 and quite possibly the longest ski day of my life.

I was sad to hear that today marks the last day of skiing at Winter Park and Mary Jane. Thankfully, I got to end my ski season on an epic powder day. What a great year: 21 days, including Steamboat, Tahoe and Whistler. Next year, I'm shooting for 30.

Bring on Mountain Bike Season. I plan on riding a few races in the Winter Park Mountain Bike Racing Series as well as the Fat Tire Classic.

I second the motion to bring on mountain bike season. It has been a long winter, and even though I've been riding through most of the winter, we've only in the last week or so been able to ride the singletrack here in Michigan. You guys in Colorado have all the fun though, not only do you have some epic mountain bike trails, but you've also now got a cyclocross season that runs through the winter and spring months as well (

Still a month of good skiing left at the parties on "the beach"

That's a good point about A-Basin, I plan on sharing a keg with friends on the beach in a couple weeks.

Cheers to a great season, Raible. I got in 22 days- sounds like our priorities are in the right place, my friend!
