Gondola lift above the parking lot
Today we drove to Breckenridge for some early season skiing. The trails were in pretty good shape and we got quite a few runs in. Peaks 8 and 9 were open and there were plenty of greens and blues to play on. Dan tried the one black that was open -- it had some patches of thin cover to avoid. Fortunately, there were plenty of bumps and trees for him to play with on the easier runs.

When Breck closed down at 4pm we headed to the other side of the reservoir for night skiing at Keystone. It was beautiful watching the sun set as we climbed the mountain in the gondola. There were two long runs open (20 minutes each) and we had fun playing on them under the lights. On the second to last run of the night a snowboarder plowed into me and knocked me down. My neck still hurts a day later -- whip lash perhaps?

We had a blast skiing all day even if we didn't get home until late. We were so sore after sitting for two hours in the car that we couldn't move once we did arrive. More pics here.
