Winter Park/Mary Jane Ski Ski Ski Resort

So I finally made it to a ski resort in Colorado.  Winter Park/Mary Jane to be more precise.  Due to a late Friday night Mathew and I took a little bit later leave and ran in the troubled I70 traffic again, but this time at least without the weather.  Although there was a truck turned over and a large plow truck stuck.

I requested to start with an easy blue to make sure I could still ski with my recovered foot.  The first run turned out to be a trail that would have made for some fun cross country skiing.  The next run after finding a different part of the park dumped us between a blue-black and a black.  Huge moguls, narrow with a drop off into the trees on one side, and it was decently sloped but at least there was enough powder to keep it slow.

Mary Jane is known for its bumps, and they are no joke.  My legs got worked.  I have never had my legs so tired (even after one run) before.  So here's the sights from Winter Park.  Colorado, not the high five state.









Now to leave you with my favorite trail of the day!
