The home opener for the Rockies was a success, and it was against the Dodgers, aand the final score was 2-1, and I rode downtown and scored a ticket for $30, and I watched Kyle Freeland who grew up in Denver pitch a wonderful game with 50,000 other Colorado baseball fans. THAT is a good day.

A lot of shitty news floating around out there these days. So many good people falling for one reason or another. With that in mind, there is always a place to escape the bad news for a few hours....for me, it's always been about skiing during the Colorado snowy season. I learned years ago that there really isn't much fun about suffering like a dog on my bike this time of year when I can be doing this. With that said, it took me 34 years to hit a good day a Breck, but it happened yesterday, once again proving that the best place to ski is the place that gets the snow....that was a keeper.

Corn snow at it's finest. Four days of skiing at the Canyons and Park City in Utah with my amazingly awesome wife Anna. Super cool accommodations and a BIG ski area to explore for the first time. The Canyons and Park City together are daunting in size. The place is pretty funky in many areas and challenging in others. A lot of traversing similar to Vail with super long flat run outs after 30-40 good turns of skiing. The best terrain at Canyons/Park City is accessible on foot, after substantial hiking up some fairly steep terrain. With the spring conditions it was not worth the walk to these spots. Even with ideal snow the hikes would be very long and arduous for very few turns and then another long traverse out. There is some steep lift access tree and bowl skiing which was awesome with the light cream cheese conditions. Can't say I've ever skied better corn for four straight days. I'll be back.
