Two weekends ago, we skiing at Steamboat Springs. A few college friends were coming in town, and we were able to stay with our friends Gabe and Nina. This was my first time at a “real” ski resort. Fancy place, fancy people. The slopes were great for me, as they have a number of runs that have minimal “sloping.”

Oh, an update: Right before Christmas, I went on snowboarding day #2. It was rough. I wasn’t giving up yet, but I did have a bruised tailbone for around a month afterward. Joel decided we should both go back to skiing, and I happily agreed. I bought some cheap skis on Craigslist and some boots on ebay, and I am set. I would have been miserable at Steamboat if I attempted to snowboard. Joel is still snowboarding, so I haven’t figured out if he really thought he would go back to skiing when he made his suggestion, or if he was just trying to make me feel better… Either way, I am a content green-level skier. The main reason I wanted to snowboard anyway was because I hate walking in ski boots. 🙂

Notice the helmets - we highly recommend them!
Slightly blurry view from the condo. Did I mention that Gabe and Nina have access to an amazingly located condo?? (yes, that is the main gondola right there)

One reply on “Steamboat”

  1. Skiing is way better than snowboarding, just ask my right arm! We’re going cross-country skiing next weekend….wish me luck.
