Winter Park End of Season Pond Skimming
Here is a video of contestant #15 at Spring Splash. From the time that we watched the pond skimming competition this guy by far had the best run. The Spring Spash this year was was very good and very spring like. Last year there was a ton of new snow on closing weekend but this year was just a bunch of spring-like slush.
The locals party over at Mary Jane C-Lot was very fun with local musicians and people BBQ-ing, having some drinks and an all around good time. The weather cooperated with no rain or snow and delightful sunny skies. We will post some of the pictures from splash in the next day or two.
Now that Winter Park Resort is closed we are getting some spring storms that are just making me wish the resort was still open. Maybe a trip up to Berthoud Pass for some back country skiing will end this ski season on a proper note. Oh well it was a good ski season with some big storms followed by some dry periods but we got some very good days in and overall the season was not bad. El Nino held for the entire year and we were a little short of our average snow fall.
Goodbye ski season and hello mountain bike season. Well, after all this snow melts that has dropped in the last few days.
