Default Cross-Country Board Tour

So, here I go again (on my own.) Last year I took a Professional Leave and traveled in-search of good snow and good people. However, due to technical and climactic difficulties, I never blogged the trip. This year, I'm doing it again, hoping for better productivity. After a brief visit to Stowe, Vermont with my school's ski club (I'm a coordinator,) I set-out on a Tour of the West. My students dubbed this trip Snowbbatical Round 2. I arrived in Breckenridge on February 20th.

A big storm was set to drop a ton of snow on the Midwest, and Breckenridge reported a whopping 5 inches. I went and played for a few hours, but was so grumpified by the conditions off the T-Bar that I'm not even posting photos or video from that day. The next day, despite my grumpiness, I took the advice of Joel from Opensnow.com to go out and enjoy the snow. I'm glad I did. Here is a rough little edit.
