I didnâ€™t burn my kitchen down cooking my first ever Thanksgiving dinner! Not only did my home survive, nobody got food poisoning. What a success.
After the tryptophan wore off and we sobered up from the wine the car was packed for a massive 3 day ski event. Friday at Keystone to check out the A51 railyard, Saturday to Copper for the opening of the superpipe (the first in North America), Saturday night in Aspen for Thanksjibbing and then more A-town turns on Sunday. Weâ€™re currently sitting in Summit County, joined by Craig Coker, Tim Russell, Ahmet Dadali and Mike Hornbeck. We just polished off a sushi dinner (how cliche of us) and are now relaxing and preparing for a big day at Copper tomorrow.
Keystone was a good time today, busy but still great. There are probably around 20+ rails, stalls and bonks available in the A51 mini park. Theyâ€™re making snow like crazy and will be opening up terrain as soon as the temps allow. While cruising around we ran into freeskiingâ€™s leading lady, Grete Eliassen and took a few runs with her family who is currently on holiday here in Colorado. Great times meeting the whole Eliassen clan, classy folks.
Weâ€™re going to go curl up with some leftovers and pop in a dvd so we can get a jumpstart on Copper tomorrow. Weâ€™ll be shredding with Tim, Craig, Hornbeck and more. Pics and updates to come.
Hope your holiday was spent with friends and family!
Special thanks to Keystone today for hosting us. Weâ€™ll be there next weekend for the 36 Hours of Keystone. Yep, 36 hours of skiing. Check out the details.
