I organized a group of ski friends for a Snow Cat Skiing trip to San Juan Ski
Company in Durango, CO. I chose them because they have experienced guides
that can rip, the 35,000 acres of terrain they have to choose from means there
is always good snow in the bank and the great time we had last year. The
first day we went to the Cascade creek area. It was pretty overcast but
visibility is almost always good in the trees. There was one drop I made off a
ledge into a powder field where I couldn't see a thing until the bottom
but the snow was so nice I just skied by the feel of the powder under my skis.
The snow was great except for the first run where it was a little heavy due to
tell when we get to day 2 in the slide show because it was a bluebird day. We
headed up to the Scotch Creek Area for the day. I knew it was going to be great
when I scooped up a big handful of light powder as I got off of the Snow Cat on
our first run in the middle of an area with plenty of exposure to the sun.
Everyone definitely took it up a notch on Sunday with plenty of racing down the
hills to snake each other's lines. There was plenty for all it just seems a
little sweeter when you can beat your buddy to it even when there is plenty to
go around. As usual our guides were first rate and they became part of the
group within the first couple of runs.
everyone that went for making it another epic trip and to San Juan Ski
Company for delivering plenty of the goods and
four great guides.
