We just got back from a rather nice 4 day weekend in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where we got to ski a couple of days on what the tourist board refers to as “packed powder” but the rest of us think of as a mix of snow and ice. Regardless of the conditions, it was still great fun and I’ve added Steamboat to my list of ski destinations definitely worth a return visit.
In a wonderful quirk of weather fate, the skies opened on our second day there and dumped 8 inches of wonderful new snow just in time for us to finish skiing for the year. The morning we left, we woke up to absolutely perfect conditions. Although we weren’t skiing that day, our flights were pretty late so I managed to spend some quality time with my Canon G9 wandering the lower slopes and grabbing some images of fresh snow. I had thought about lugging a DSLR with me but decided against it since I wanted to ski and probably wouldn’t have had time to use it. Maybe next time, I’ll change my mind?
