Snow!

It snowed for the first time this season.  We got the full amount stated in the forcast, 3in. I’m not ready for the riding season to end but I know it’s snow going to last long.  We could have 3-7 more weeks left.  I’m hoping for at least 4-5 more weeks.

Jolly Jug Glades

My 8year old son is becoming a pretty good skier. Today at Eldora after a couple of runs down the Corona mogul line I suggested doing the Jolly Jug Glades, at the top of Challenge Mtn. I thought we just do the top section, which is mellow for the most part. I thought this would […]
