Quite the weekend ahead

As you may or may not know, Joe and I like to do a bit of snowboarding 🙂

And, believe it or not, the resorts are not our favorite place to do so.  We much prefer getting out into the backcountry and hiking/skinning up some big mountain than finding out own path down.  We haven’t been out yet this season but here’s some pics from last winter.DSCN0091[1]IMG_2600[1]IMG_2578[1]IMG_2347[1]

The snow in Colorado has been VERY unstable this season and there have been quite a few avalanches already. Unfortunately two of them have been fatal.

Joe and I really want to be as knowledgeable and prepared as we possibly can be when venturing into this dangerous terrain, so this weekend we are taking an avalanche safety course with another one of our friends. Two full days spent trudging up and down a mountain and learning as much as possible.

We are taking this through Boulder Mountain Institute with our favorite climbing/backcountry guide, Rob!

Can’t wait to recap you all on Monday! Have a great weekend!
