Riding up into blue skies and sunshine on May 16, 2010. Photo by Dena Rosenberry

Although Montezuma Bowl and Pallavicini terrain were closed after my last visit (May 16), about 1/3 of A-Basin remains open through Sunday.  And conditions seem good for spring skiing in Colorado.  And there’s nothing like taking a run in short-sleeves and sunshine!

About 27 inches has fallen in May, and even if not another flake falls this week, the weekend should be a blast. Expect the beach to be in rare form. Take your camera and plenty of sunscreen.

Here’s a report from Julie Sutor in the Summit Daily News. And a great photo of riders taking a break in their portable hot tub (no word whether it transported anyone back to the ’80s).
