IKON trip complete – Snowboarding in 4 states in 1 week. Here is what we experienced….

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 DogĀ  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!
