Colorado, and most of the west for that matter, has been getting pounded by a powerful winter storm these last few days. This last weekend we did a quick trip to Ouray to catch up with some friends and get out for some backcountry powder turns.
Although we were both a bit sad to leave, after two great days of skiing we hightailed it through the blizzard back to Crested Butte, where two feet of powder blanketed the Butte by Monday!
It’s been a slow start to the season this year around here, especially with the infamous Crested Butte “doughnut hole” in full effect, but we’ve finally got a bigger storm heading through this week. All I want for Christmas is a couple more feet of snow!
I hopped out of the truck during a road construction stop yesterday to snap this shot during our drive back to Crested Butte after two weeks in the deserts of southern Utah. It was a cold but wonderful road trip, and I will be posting lots of photos in the coming days!
