white out

This weekend was full of great snow 🙂 This license plate says it all!

Joe and I spent Saturday riding at Breckenridge. I was a bad blogger and didn’t take any pictures. But, it was a really great day. They had a couple inches of new snow and we had so much fun! It started snowing again around noon and basically didn’t stop until a couple hours ago.

We decided to go to A-basin on Sunday- this was the biggest snow storm we’ve had since moving here and we could not wait to get in on the action. We got up super early to get out on the road with the other snow crazy people.

It was a slow drive, but we got there and were lining up before the lift even opened 🙂                                                                                                               IMG_2376[1]IMG_2378[1]

 

It was pretty cold and windy, but the fresh powder was absolutely incredible. There  was new terrain open and we were all over it! However, the wind gusts got up to about 60mph and at one point it was really scary. Joe and I were on top of the mountain and it was a complete white out! I literally couldn’t see him about 5 feet from me….this is how people die on Everest…

After that crazy white out run, they closed the top of the mountain because it was too dangerous, but we still had so much fun playing on the lower half and all through the glades. You know it’s snowy and windy when you get done and your boyfriends beard looks like this. haha                                                              IMG_2379[1]

We eventually called it a day and went inside to get the worlds most delicious bloody mary 🙂                                                                                        IMG_2381[1]

Then it was time to hit the road for the slow drive home. We were exhausted and spent the rest of the night watching house hunters on the couch. And, refueling with veggie burgers, sweet potato, and asparagus, of course!              IMG_2386[1]

Can’t wait for next weekend…is it really only Monday?!?!?!

What did you do this weekend? Is there snow where you are?

  1. Woah I don’t know what I would do if I was caught in a white out! Scary! Sounds like you guys had an awesome weekend though! That veggie burger looks delicious!

  2. Those eats…yum! They are saying it may snow here tonight…can you believe it? It was just 70 degrees yesterday!! Nuts.

  3. Girl, you and Joe are champs… yet crazy! I can’t believe y’all were out driving in that weather. Mad props to you two. 🙂

    • haha- thanks! I made Joe do all the driving. It was a little scary at times, but my jeep has 4 wheel drive so we were good. The scariest part was when I was lost in the white out at the top of the mountain!!

  4. My hubby almost didn’t make it home from his Colorado trip Sunday because of all the snow! Sounds like it was a crazy storm!

  5. I am hoping for no more snow where I am! I always say my spring starts March 1. I have had enough winter!
