First Visit to Killington?

Friday, February 19th, 2016

In case you’ve never been to Killington before or if you haven’t been there in a while and miss it, check out this video. We can’t vouch for the restaurant but you simply can’t go to Killington and not think about heading to the Wobbly Barn!

Altitude & Skiing the Rockies – Part 1

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Al·ti·tude sick·ness – noun
Illness caused by ascent to a high altitude and the resulting shortage of oxygen, characterized chiefly by hyperventilation, nausea, exhaustion, and cerebral edema.

Skiing out West offers a tremendous choice of incredible resorts, tons of light, fluffy snow and thousands of long trails that make your vacation one of the best experiences you could ever ask for. However, in planning a trip to the Rockies (or Alps or any other ski resort at elevation), you have to consider the fact that your body is in for a bit of a shock!

Quite simply, your body takes time to acclimatize to elevation and, when you push yours, bad things can happen.

I remember my first trip to Colorado. I’d heard about the elevation issues and I promised myself that I would be smart. Well, in retrospect, it may not have been the most intelligent thing to do to get off the flight and head right to Arapahoe Basin with its summit elevation of 13,050′, the highest in the State!

I vowed to take it easy until I figured out how bad or good things would be. I am a pretty good skier but still took a nice easy cruiser to start off. No problem! I was excited and hopeful that the stories were overblown.

So the next run, I upgraded to an intermediate run. Off to a good start, I saw a nice, tight mogul patch and headed off for a little fun!

One turn, a second, a third and then….it was time for a nap!

It was like all of the energy in my body just ran out of me at once. I sat there and realized what Superman must have felt like after a bout with Kryptonite (not that I am comparing myself to Superman!). I thought that I was in shape but my legs were toast after three turns!

After a short rest and now sufficiently humbled by Mother Nature, I took it easy for the balance of the day and vowed to take things a little more gradually.

About a week later, I found myself in what is now my favorite ski resort, Aspen. I had acclimatized now (or so I thought) and was ready to take on the Big Mountain!

I enjoyed all that Aspen Mountain had to offer that day, taking on its challenges and living to tell the tale. I was going to head out into the famous Aspen night and share my stories of conquest with other worthy souls who had also mastered the mountain. But first, I figured to lie down in my hotel room and catch up with some SportsCenter.

The next thing that I remember, it was 8:00 a.m. the next day! I had slept 15 hours straight. So much for being acclimatized, so much for being the master of the mountain!

It can take up to  two – three weeks for your body to adjust to the types of elevations found at most of the ski resorts in the Rockies. Aspen Mountain (Ajax) has a summit elevation of over 11,000′, Snowmass is over 12,500′, Vail is 11,570′, Steamboat is over 10,500, Snowbird is over 11,000’….well you get the idea.

The bottom line is that your body simply doesn’t get enough oxygen. Over time, and this is an oversimplification, your body will produce more red blood cells and this will help you deal with the change. However, in most cases, this won’t happen in time to help you during your ski getaway so simply listen to your body, take it easy and respect your body. If it tells you to take a rest, do it!

More about what to do if and when you feel the effects of altitude in Part II.

Snow report – Jan. 21, 2016

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

It looks like the super storm is going to pass to the south of the Eastern ski resorts but conditions still continue to improve with Sugarbush being the first to reach 100% open.
In the West, up to 30″ on new snow fell in the last week so conditions are close to perfect.

Restaurant Review – The Ore House at Pine Grove, Steamboat, CO

Thursday, January 14th, 2016
