Breckendridge Ski Trip - March 2011

This trip I invited Gene Dickey and his family to join me in the condo.  Tracy, Brandon, Matt and Drew.  I drove up by myself and did my usual sleep in the car thing.  They drove up in their car and didn't get there until Sunday and left on Friday.  We had a lot of fun.

Here's the whole group:

The snow this week was some of the best I've ever seen up there.  There was so much of it and it wasn't icy or too hard or too soft.  This is a view of a run on Peak 7 - there was so much powder that day it was hard to ski, but most days it was just perfect.  No lift lines either, and the weather was beautiful, sunny but not hot.  It was just about perfect. 

Sally and Tommy Hartley were there at their condo the same week, so I met them for skiing a couple of days and they had me over for dinner one night.  It was great to get to see them.  Tommy took me up on top of Imperial lift because I thought I was ready for it, but I almost didn't make it down.  My ski track for that run is really funny.  I was going back and forth very slowly allllll the way across and then allll the way back, and then I fell.  I went straight down for a very long way before Tommy caught me.  I knocked him down too, but he was able to stop me before we skidded all the way down.  That was fun!

Here's a google maps link to my ski track for the week:    2011 Trail Map
