This just over the transom from Craig B. in Crested Butte, Colorado. They did a good job of getting their September turns. Here closer to Aspen we’re still waiting for the first significant dusting of fresh so we can head up to Montezuma and get the last of our TAY (turns all year), and judging from how wet this fall is, that should be happening soon. (One has to ask Craig, what’s with the green boots? I’m trying to place them but memory fails, Dynafits?.)
|Hey Lou, yep it’s been an easy summer to make turns around here if you know where to look. Here’s a shot from the northern slopes of Purple Mountain just over Yule pass near Crested Butte. Had a beautiful Labor Day making several laps on the existing 25 turn patch. Bring on the October snows!!! Craig|
