Beaver Creek TR, 2-3-07

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Brrrrrrr! For those of you who skied in Colorado last weekend, you can feel my pain. Friday was too cold to take the camera out- but the snow at the Beav was $$$. My friend and I explored the new Stone Creek Chutes- lots of good stuff back there, but the only gripe I have is that its too short. Only about 600-700 vert, then you have to take the Rose Bowl Chair back up, which is a SLOW triple.

Saturday we got first chair on Grouse Mountain, and spent all day lapping Royal Elk. Wow. Despite the second straight day of 30+ mph winds, the snow was great. A little windblown crust, but it was soft most everywhere. Here are some pics... I'm in white, my friend Mike is in gray.

Before the sun came up high enough:

Windblown my a$$!

Yours truly making some high speed turns:

That's my helmet.

If this was Vail, there'd be 10 others in this picture.

My sticks:

The trees are so much fun.

Me hitting a nice little drop:

Nice pics. Any of those pictures taken in Stone Creek or Royal Elk? I've been to BC, but never skied either of those.

Yep... all taken in Royal Elk. I'll get pics of Stone Creek next time I go up there.

Nice Pics! Wish we were there. Did have a Nice Bluebird Day @ BC on Tues. Think Iam down to my last 2 Vail-BC days on my pass.

great pics

Looks like you had some great snow Harry. Yesterday I skied Grouse all day and Royal Elk Glades a couple of times-snow was good-soft and spring like, but temps were warm and it was foggy with wet snow falling all day. More like a PNW day!! But still very good IMO.

The Beav does have some nice terrain indeed!!
