As you may recall, Eldora is the little local mountain where Hubs and I have our ski passes. Our first trip out was utterly painful, our second attempt we didn’t even make it to the mountain, and our last time out was spent convincing Emily that 60mph winds were an aberration in Colorado’s normally gorgeous weather.
Although our spirits were certainly weakened, we still decided to head back to Eldora a few weeks ago.
I’m happy to say, it was our lucky day. The skies were sunny, the weather was lovely enough to sit out on the deck of the chalet, and my toes had circulation the entire day.
Eldora, I hardly recognize you with your kick butt views and plushy snow!
Moments before a double back diamond run:
Don’t be impressed, kids shorter than my knee caps sped past me on that run.
Moral of the story is…we’ll be back! Mostly because we have a wad of ski passes to use up or they go to waste and not going would be like throwing money off a chair lift over the back country during an avalanche.
