Joe and I spent an amazing day in the backcountry on Sunday. We explored a new to us area near Vail Pass. It’s about a 4 mile hike in to get to the area we wanted to ride, which took us about 3 hours. We were moving pretty quickly, but it was a pretty steep climb for a lot of the distance.
We got within a mile, but had to snowshoe the rest of the way out.
It was such an awesome day and an incredible workout as always. However, Joe and I were no so smart about re-applying our sunscreen and I now have what is probably the worst sunburn of my life. I basically have white goggles around my face and the rest is lobster red…..it is not pretty and I am just praying it goes away before I go to NYC this weekend…ugh.
What did you do this weekend? Any other backcountry riders/skiiers out there?
