It was a white Christmas in Durango this year. We woke up to open presents about 7 am and the snow started to fall. By the time we got to Purgatory there was about 4 inches on the ground and the snow was falling. It made for a great day!
Well, I have been slacking lately. I’ve taken plenty of great snowboarding pics, but have not posted any here since Purgatory’s opening day. I have posted a lot of pictures to my Instagram account under my name Durangomtbiketours. Be sure to follow me there and check them out. I’ll be posting a bunch of pics here over the next week. We’ve had quite a few powder days, the Opening of Chapman Hill, and a sweet trip to Wolf Creek. If we can’t mountain bike, at least we are snowboarding. I’ve already been getting phone calls and booking tours for 2015. I can’t wait.
Got to ride some fine single track in and around Park City, Utah last weekend. My guides were Eliu and his brother Alan, friends I recently made through sharing pics on Instagram (gotta love the power of social media). Those two were awesome and gave me the locals inside scoop on the trails. We parked at the top of Gaurdsman Pass and ride a twenty mile, 4 1/2 hr loop with over 3,400 feet of elevation gain. Some of the trails we rode were Scott’s Bypass, Pinecone Ridge, Middle Mt, Apex and Shadow Lake to name a few. I’m looking forward to getting out there again soon.
