With the sun out and Pikes Peak uncharacteristically snowy for this time of year, my wife, Amanda and I decided to go ski at Glen Cove on Pikes Peak Saturday. It was awesome. The snow was bit heavy and inconsistent, but the turns were great and so was the view. As you can see, we weren't the only people shuttling up the road to Devil's Playground to ride back down.
If I'd do anything differently, it would be this: bring a snowboard instead of tele skis. In my own view, a snowboard is much better on manky, inconsistent snow. Where we struggled a bit with out teles, we would have flown on snowboards.
Or at least, I should say, I struggled on tele skis. Amanda (below) is a natural.
