The Dirty Dump

We tried to make it to Silverthorn (from Denver) lastnight, but that was a big, fat fail. With the amount of snow and pile-ups on i70, there was no way.

We finally made it up earlier this afternoon and are now hanging out in a beautiful condo off of Ryan Gulch Rd.

Where to? Breck? Keystone? Beaver Creek? The opportunities are abundant out here! Where are you headed this weekend? Hopefully somewhere outside that’s inspiring.
