My life in Steamboat Springs and other places
(and plenty of opinion, which you're free to ignore)

It's not often that I go out and spend the entire time on the lower mountain but that's exactly what I did today. We found Goldilocks conditions - not too hard and not too soft - so we just kept circulating on the Thunderhead Express. Concentration was good enough to do twice, which is unusual on a non-powder day. Vagabond was also nice and not too crowded. Even Heavenly Daze on the way home was good.
The high temperature today was 60F or 15C. That's the warmest I've seen it in March in eight seasons.
Here's the GPS data. Only lap 1 on the lower mountain is mine; Tony and Aline stayed out after I was finished.
