Snowmass Ski Resort
On our second day at Snowmass we were lucky to get some fresh snow. Not a huge dump but it covered the hard packed snow. So the idea was to get to it. We took the Elk Camp gondola, to the Elk Camp lift, and then hiked up about 5-10 minutes to the new Burnt Mountain Glades. This was the scene at the top of Elk Camp peak. And over yonder... Oh! Here we are ... Ski Colorado!
I've skied at Snowmass Ski Resort before, however that was 30 years ago - my how time flies! I was very excited to get on the slopes once again and refresh my memories of a fabulous mountain. Day 1 at Snowmass was rather overcast and snowy, so photos were not a huge focus. We spent most of the day zipping up and down the Sheer Bliss and Big Burn chairs. So here we start ... Ski Colorado!
