2013/03/07 Skiing/Snowboarding Trip of Colorado
π 2013-03-07 00:00 in Trips
This started with Arturo and I flying to Denver, where Karl and Suwei were nice enough to pick us up so that we could drive together to their Condo at Keystone for skiing the next 3 days:

You can go to the pictures of our 3 days on the slopes of Keystone, Vail, and Beaver Creek.

On Monday, Arturo, Suwei and I went to the Google Boulder office (pictures here) to work a couple of days. Arturo and I had a quick walk through downtown Boulder. I also got a few pictures on my walking commute to the office:





On Wednesday, Karl picked us up for a long drive from Boulder to Silverton via Gunnison and Ouray. It was actually a very nice drive with some picture stops, a visit of the ice climbing park and natural hot springs in Ouray.




We finally made it to South Park, Colorado :)





We then reached the continental divide at Monarch pass. The only way to get to the top was hiking in the snow though :)


gondola probably only opens later in the season :)

Next, we arrived at Gunnison for a late lunch. It was nice for me since I had scored a landing at their airport last year, but never seen the town.




Later on the road, we found a nice frozen lake and bridge to take pictures around:







This was found a bit later. I like the barb wire to stop you from getting on top of the fence :)



Finally, after that, we made it to Ouray, with its cool ice park. Ice is made with big tubes of water that leak a bit:








We finished at the hot springs (no pictures from there), and made it to Silverton. That was a very nice drive, thanks to Karl for getting us there.

I have a separate page for pictures of Silverton.

On Sunday, we drove to back to Durango for a quick day at the local ski resort and flight home: Skiing in Durango.
