Mellow Berthoud Pass Day

First off, the lack of posts lately is due to some technical difficulties that have finally been resolved. I’ll be catching up over the next week or two, but for now, a few shots from today. Lauren, Kendall, Sophie, and I headed up early to get some exercise in, and got a few nice turns to boot. Two laps up the East side, two laps up the West side, then out of the lot at noon to still get stuck in I-70 traffic.

Lauren was getting started slowly so Kendall, Sophie, and I headed up to treeline on the East side of the pass for a quick warmup.

Lauren met us at the hut, and we dashed up the East side one more time.

The conditions on the East side were “variable,” to put it nicely. We hopped over to the West side of the pass for a couple more easy laps, and found much nicer snow.

The weather kept cycling between sunny and hot, and cloudy and windy. It changed every five minutes or so, with the average between the two being quite comfortable.

Sophie had a blast, as she tends to in the mountains.

All in all, a great morning at the pass.
