I’m back from the “Steep and Deep” of the Colorado white stuff. For those of you non-snow lovers, “Steep and Deep” is a term that means steep slopes and deep snow (powder). I had an interesting time in Colorado. Me and four friends of mine visited two main resorts in CO, Vail and Breckenridge. Although I had a really fun time on the slopes and with my friends, I wasn’t completely in the best of health during most of the trip. For all but two days during the trip I suffered from a moderate case of High Altitude sickness. It involved lots of bodily “expenditures”. I don’t think Vail appreciated how I expressed my excitement for the mountain. I suffered through the pain … the mountain gave us lots of snow to ride down … and I gave back to it … on my knees in the snow repeatedly. Well lots of water, medicines, and days later I was finally able to really enjoy myself … it was on the final ride day of our vacation. Oh well … live and learn.
Although I liked Vail (even in my un-healthy state) I really enjoyed Breckenridge. My comparison of the two can be summed up like this;
“At Vail you ride the trails, at Breckenridge you ride the mountain”
I would have loved to stay longer but I am glad to be back. I felt a bit cutoff from what was going on in Technology and it’s good to be back. As you can see from my previous post the FlexManiacs Conference registration is now open.
