    Well it is a 2hour drive minimum for us to go skiing of any kind. Luckily the season is pretty long so we can ski a decent number of days, because most weeks we struggle to get even 3 days in.

    We have been taking our cross country gear(back country) out and playing around in the forest and parks just for the practice.

    We'd be closer to the snow, but life circumstances require us to be closer to the more extensive services that Colorado Springs provides. Woodland Park, our current hometown, is great because it's a cool little town nestled in the National Forest where doing all kinds of fun outdoors stuff is right outside our door, yet it's only a 1/2 hour from Colorado Springs. It's warmer and less snow than the ski resort towns, so it gives us the choice during early and late ski season to head for the mountains to hit the slopes, or stay at home and do summer type activities.

    Yeah but by the end of the day you hiked much much slower than the start...

    Hope to make it back up for one more ride before the season ends. I was actually surprised how green and alive so many of the trees were up there. I'd been told the pine beetle had turned the place into a brown stick wasteland. Not the case. Sure, some kill for sure, but still dang beautiful up there.
