2nd Colorado Ski Trip 2017
Friday, March 24th through Monday March 27th

This trip's attendees were David Shin, Mia Pham, Charlie Haubein and Keith Montz.   We stayed in the Keystone area and skied at Vail for two days and one day at Keystone. 

This was the first time we skied Cloud Nine area of Vail which was amazing and I didn't even know it existed.  There were very few skiers and some very long amazing runs which were very nice long Blue course that were perfect for the ski bikes and skis.

Generally speaking, it was warm off of the mountains and still cold enough to wear light gear when skiing.  Some places were a little slushy at the end of the day but that actually is helpful when on the ski bikes.
