Steamboat, Colorado Ski Trip

Hudson Valley Ski Club ~ January 2013 ~ photos courtesy of Pete Gray IV

Day 1: A few shots I took today. 22,280 vertical and we (John, Donna and myself) quit about 2:30 (our legs were shot). Joan and Robin kept right on skiing.....

Day 2: Steamboat, Day 2. 23,510 vertical today. Great weather. Western skiing in the morning; Eastern skiing in the afternoon. NASTAR tomorrow. This will be my last

NASTAR race if I fall again (as I did at Beaver Creek).

Day 3: 22,340' vertical today. Many of us did the private HVSC NASTAR race today, followed by a great on-mountain picnic. Carl, Gail & myself got Bronze Medals. Tom

Filocco got a Gold Medal (the only one, I believe).

Day 4: a. Here are today's pics. Not too many as we spent most of the day getting 27,750 vertical feet. Going to Jack Diemer's Son's restaurant tonight.

Billy Kidd is supposed to be there also.

Day 4: b. Our dinner at Mike Diemer's "Johnny B. Good" restaurant and a nice visit and talk by Billy Kidd.

Day 5: Not much in the picture department today. It was overcast and tough to see most of the day. After we stopped skiing, it started snowing like hell and it's still coming down pretty good. We did manage to get 24,480 vertical feet, but it was tough in the flat light. Maybe we will have a few inches of fresh snow for out last ski day tomorrow!

Day 6: Here are my final photos from Steamboat. We had 2"" of fresh powder last night but, unfortunately, there was no sun and fog today. I only managed to get in 10,270' vertical today before my legs ordered me off the mountain. John & I quit early and walked around Gondola Plaza, did some shopping, ate lunch and then made our final visit to the hot tub. Now for some packing and a trip into town for dinner. Luggage has to be outside our rooms at 7:30 AM and we leave for Denver at 9:00 AM.
