LOUISVILLE, CO – Over 2 feet of snow has fallen in the Colorado foothills outside of Denver in the last 24 hours. With snow totals like that we high tailed it up to the Loveland Ski Area. High tailed might not be the right word..

As soon as we left my house I knew we were in for a bit of a drive. Traffic along I-70 was crawling around 40 mph, we took it safe and made it to the resort in 2 1/2 hours.

After shredding the resort for a while we were eager to get home. It’s rare to see snow like this in the front range so we figured why not try and actual ride our snowboards in Lousiville!
