The things I have to do to keep up with my friends
Kayle and Becky are great friends that I look forward to mountain biking with here in Steamboat every summer. I'll do anything to keep up with these desert people including taking them on a trail that is still covered with snow in July but nothing slows down these guys! I wondered why Becky let me pass her but after seeing this picture it was clear. It may not be Steamboat's famous Champagne powder 4 months after the ski area has closed but it still brings a smile to my face.
Believe it or not but this is July in Steamboat up on Buffalo Pass. Buff Pass is just Northwest of the Steamboat Ski area. I am told by several people that it receives more snow than any other measuring post in the state and pictures like this make me believe them. We had a record winter in Steamboat in 2007/2008 and it was too deep to snowmobile off the cat tracks multiple weeks this year. For more click back to the Steamboat Springs blog main page.
