23 people went on the trip. Some flew, some drove.

First day Monday, we had 2" to 3" of fresh snow. Rick took part of the group for a tour of Snowmass mountain and visited the three peaks and three main on mountain restaurants. Monday night there was an outdoor barbeque dinner when it started to snow.

Tuesday morning we had around 10" of fresh powder and a group went up to the top of Big Burn for First Tracks an hour before the chairlifts opened to the public. Due to lack of crowds, we had fresh snow to almost lunch time. Tuesday evening there was a group dinner in Rick and Laurie's condo for appetizers, salad, lasagna, garlic bread, beer and wine.

Wednesday was a perfect day. Blue skies, 30 degrees, and perfect snow from Tuesday's storm. Some took the day off and went into Aspen. But for those that skied Snowmass, we had outstanding snow and groomed conditions in Elk Camp all day. There was the Thigh Burner race and after we met down at Venga Venga for margaritas.

Thursday and Friday were spring conditions with temps in the 50's. Thursday, some of the group went to Aspen mountain and skied Ajax and the run the World Cup races were held on in early March. On Friday, Dave Clark got 10 of us organized for Nastar racing at Snowmass. We're a fast group as many received medals.

Overall- A GREAT TRIP!
