Bluebird’s the Word
Another beautiful bluebird day in the ‘Boat today! Lather up that sunscreen, put on a light coat, or no coat at all and go make some springtime turns because it is locals sunbathing weather out today!
Don’t forget, Thursday half price demo’s at the yurt (top of gondola)! It’s a great day to try out some new carving sticks.
I waited until 9:00 to hit the mountain today to let the snow warm up a little and oh baby what an absolutely beautiful day out today! As I write this it’s currently 32 degrees out with a blistering high today of 45! NOOOOOO our snow is melting! I might need to break out my authentic snow dance costume, light a fire, and do a full blown snow dance tonight, drums and all, as Steamboat is starting to feel like spring outside!
The groomers are in great shape and the carving is great this morning. My friend and I took a handful of cruiser runs then decided to go on a little adventure from top of the Morningside lift and hike to the radio tower to hit North St Pats. When we reached the top of the radio tower the begging birds were chirping like crazy, my buddy didn’t believe they’d take food directly off his hand and it took a matter of 30 seconds for him to have a big smile on his face as they landed for a quick snack.
I dared him to put one in his mouth to see if they’d take it, they came in close for a couple looks but never did take it directly from his mouth, I would have loved to have caught that on camera!
After playing with the birds at the top of our our short hike we shot over to North St Pats. It was great to have a nice steep challenging run with some drops. The views of the valley from the top of Mt Werner never get old.
It’s not a powder day but there were a couple fresh turns to be had and last time I checked it sure beats working!
I do love this time of year, part of me is in panic mode because the mountain closes in a little over a month which is the one time a year I actually feel like crying. The other half of me is embracing the warmer weather, sunshine, and times skiing with good friends.
