2013/03/17 A Quick Day at Durango Mountain Resort
π 2013-03-17 00:00 in Snow
Due to our flight on sunday afternoon, we had to leave a bit early, and it didn't make sense to do one more day at Silterton. Turns out, conditions had turned to crap anyway, so that was a good decision in hindsight.

Instead on sunday morning we drove towards Durango and spent a quick day at the Durango Mountain Resort. We had an inch or so of fresh snow in the morning, but that wasn't enough to cover the ice crud under it.

The weather got sunny pretty quickly, which gave us some softer snow just after lunch, but again, it was chasing spring conditions in March: from ice to slush, kinda sad.










In hindsight, I'd have been happier waiting in durango, the conditions were just poor and Durango Resort not that exciting (would have been fine with 1ft of powder, or ok enough with real snow, but with ice, it kinda sucked, especially the part where I managed to mess up my thumb with my ski pole while sliding on ice).

Oh well, such is life :)
