What: CO Ski and Snowboard Trip. Not quite an epic trip, but will be fun.
Why: Why not? Needed some winter excitement and a SMB to exercise.
This trip will include camping in the SMB and lodges/motels.
Before I headed out to CO I needed to do a test camping excursion since I haven't been out since buying the SMB several months ago. Headed to Lake Cumberland KY. I was the only one in the campground.
Plan: Depart KY and head to Denver to pick up my son who was flying from VA. Then we would head to Telluride for a couple days followed by Wolf Creek. Depending on how those go, we may hit one other before I take my son back to Denver to fly back to VA.
Took 3 days to get to Denver because I could.
Had a lot of this
Had to have some rain
More of this
3 nights of "exciting" but cheap "camping"
On day 3 made it to the destination state (haven't mastered sign photos on the move)
And more of this
Finally, something of interest in the distance
Made it to Telluride
Lodging in Telluride
Telluride from the gondola
Telluride from the slope
On the slopes
We just arrived in South Fork where we are staying for Wolf Creek. We are staying in a motel instead of the van. Heading to Wolf Creek in the morning.
We'll head back to Denver on the 21st. If anyone has suggestions for skiing/snowboarding on the way back to Denver please advise.
