There is a small open meadow that I can see from my house. I stare at it all the time, I see tracks on it, but I have never ventured out to check it out in the winter time. Today was the day. Matt and I were both feeling lazy and couldn’t decide where to go. After looking in the binoculars for entirely too long at this meadow, we decided to go for it.
Last week I took my cousin Micah backcountry skiing with me for his first time. It had just snowed 7″ at Loveland Ski Area and so we hit up our favorite spot, just east of the Eisenhower Tunnel.
We set out from the parking area around 10am. Normally there are a lot of other people, but the skin track looked relatively fresh with only 2-3 tracks.
