Synopsis:

It snowed. Those days have be few and far between this season, so a quick trip was in order before I headed out to Telluride/Silverton two days later. Chair 6 was buffed out to perfection. Oops face was finally skied all the way through, and Dan Cliffs finally had more than one line in it. The Wall was ridiculously good, and then we had to drive home knowing that the next day would be even better. Oh well, THAT’S SKIING FOR YOU!!!
