We were up at 5:30am this morning in order to drive 2.5 hours up to Copper Mountain for our first day skiing. It was a really nice day. Clear and blue sky's for most of the day. The storm that had prevented us from getting into Denver a few days ago, and left some great snow all over the mountain, and a few pockets of deep powder. The views down the valleys and round the other mountains were spectacular. The mountains are really high, sitting at 13,000 feet at the summit.
We spent most of the day skiing, finishing up at about 3:30pm. We then drove back to Fort Collins. It took a bit over 3 hours as there was a lot of traffic and a few car crashes. We had to get the car packed and ready for the next day, when we leave for our two week round trip round the country side! All in all another great day, and great to be back up on the mountain.
