In one of the oddest winters in my memory, most of the United States has experienced mild temperatures for most of the winter. In fact, several midwest cities recently set new daily high temp records.
With the crazy high temps and low snow counts, skiers and snowboarders are taking advantage of great savings on the slopes. When the snow totals are low, not too many people (myself included) are very keen on going to a mountain when not even half of the resort is open.

The pic of me was taken by a couple from, of all places, Golden Colorado. Since I’m from Parker, CO, it’s pretty ironic to travel 8000 miles only to meet some people who live 50 miles away from me.
Below is a pic of the back bowl I skied down. This ended up in a gulch along side the roadway back to the resort, but a transport bus picks people up along the way. Nice of them to do that! And a pic from the balcony of the resort. Not a bad view to enjoy a beer on a Friday afternoon!
I found a Youtube clip of some skiers and boarders who took advantage of the snow and made a few runs at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Looks like fun to me!
Red Rocks has held several epic concerts for over 50 years, notably these guys from Ireland.0:1649]]>
