Northern Colorado Sled Access Snowboarding

Just after lunch time near the summit. (11500ft) photo:nell
More than two feet of fresh snow made access difficult and slow-going today. Lots of digging out the crew and panting breaths to fog goggles. Combine that with single digit wind chills and flat light conditions and you might start wondering, "Why the hell are we out here"...

JP schralps down the ski hill.
Then it blows over and skies clear to bluebird, bumping temperatures up those few critical degrees... and you remember.
