I finally made it up to ride this season (first time all year, yeah, I know – LAME!) and couldn’t have been with a better crew – Ben, Molly and Pete! Pete also had a college buddy and his girlfriend up for the week – it was a blast!
I essentially moved to Colorado to take advantage of all aspects of the mountains, obviously snowboarding being one of them. But, priorities change and this past year has been full of career opportunities that I couldn’t pass up. Since being promoted at Financial Social Media and taking on a couple roles with Colorado Runner I just haven’t had the time to ride as much as I want.
Regardless, there’s one thing that’s obvious: distance does make the heart grow fonder, and all that time I was away from my beloved snow-covered mountains made the ONE trip up there last week that much sweeter! The conditions were cold and windy, so we stayed on the bottom side of the mountain and lapped the park quite a few times.
I already miss it, but Pete and I are planning a nice little weekend up at Copper together next month so I’ll have that to look forward to!
Cheers, and happy riding!
