Yesterday got my first lap in on El Colorado's awesome, ambiguously open/closed road skiing. 6 inches of fluff on a windboard base. Tasty. More coming tonight and clearing this week, I think I'll go for a walk or two.

 - send those pics to Backcountry mag or their snowboard mag, Kronicle. And I wish you luck with the road. Could you say a bit more about the road.
