Ski Season (#9a) - Blizzard of 2006 Ski Season (#9a) - Blizzard of 2006

Thinking about the title of this post, I am still a bit surprised that I have managed to ski through the last two blizzards in Denver. In both cases, the road conditions on I-70 made travel from there to the ski areas impractical for most, resulting in those of us lucky enough to be snowed into the ski areas having the ski areas and all the powder to ourselves.

The previous blizzard was more exciting than this one. From Dillon, I couldn't get west to Frisco, Breckenridge, or Vail, but could get to Keystone and A-Basin. The result was that these areas were even less crowded than during the blizzard last week.

And as a bonus, we really did have a White Christmas this year. Indeed, we got another storm Christmas Eve. We had dinner at the University Club in downtown Denver, and the roads were questionable. But since they invariably only do one seating there a night, our being a half an hour late was not an issue. In any case, there was still a couple of feet of snow on the ground at my father's house on Christmas day. A white Christmas indeed.
