Follow the storm they said. It would be fun they said…they were right!
We just returned to California from our IKON pass ski trip to Colorado and Utah and had a blast. Waking up in a ski town the day of your flight to the state of Colorado, looking out the window and seeing some snow at lake level is a conundrum in the making. Bags weren’t packed, gloves still not dry, Squaw was reporting several inches of wet snow and still coming down. FOMO sets in and I throw the board in the truck and head to squaw. With the watery rain/snow mix and whatever the plows did (or didn’t do) sent my truck sideways going up squaw valley road. My old pizza delivery driver experience skills kicked in and I corrected my trajectory with style before parking close to Red Dog and making a run before heading over to the empty lift line at KT. Upper mountain was closed at the time again, so KT was the highest I could get. I hit up my usual spots until I was drenched in water and out of time. After hours of finagling with luggage, trying to cram everything for a week into a small board bag, I ended up packing a second bag since this was a one way flight.
…check bag…check back for more of the story!
