Ryan and I liberated gear from long ago - skies & gloves, parkas & poles, the battle armament of the alpine warrior that hadn’t paid homage since last season - while others in boulder recovered from Luke's Halloween party. We ritualistically strapped into our gear once again and stood in the huge lines. Only a single run, a lone trail, a narrow glimpse into the future of the Colorado ski season was visible. And so it would be. Baptized in a snowy mud river. Reverent in our rite. Our first runs of the year.
