Mountain #4 of #EpicRace -- Eldora

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Today we decided to conquer Eldora as we continue our #EpicRace challenge in Colorado.  It was about a 2 hour drive to the ski hill from Vail, however, it's a fairly short drive from Denver/Boulder. You can even see the plains of Colorado from the hill which was kind of a cool view and reminded me of skiing Heavenly and looking into the Carson Valley. The weather was awesome with our first blue sky day of the trip. It was a pretty quiet day on the mountain with only one lift running, 2 runs open and a wide open parking lot, but the snow was actually really great! We had a blast zipping down the slopes run after run, but quickly ran out of new terrain to try.

For this photo/video challenge at Eldora, we decided to complete the following items:

1) Indian Peaks Lodge

2) Jolly Jug (It's the name of a run that unfortunately wasn't open. Actually none of the runs for a check-in were open so we used the sign instead.)

3) Nordic Center (We're working on stepping up our video editing game a bit... let us know which version you like more by leaving a comment!)

All in all, it was another great morning on the slopes! 3 Colorado resorts down, 3 more to go before we head off to Park City, Utah!
