Snowboard Trip 2008, by the numbers

Sorry we were having so much fun, lady.Oh snowboarding, how I love thee. This year, for our annual dude's snowboarding trip, we flew out to Denver and caught a shuttle to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Watching the weather like a hawk since before Thanksgiving, I'll have to admit I was worried since Steamboat opened 10 days late this year. That means there wasn't enough snow.

Over the past few months, however, the snow returned en force. Around Christmas, all of the trails (something in the vicinity of 160) were finally open and Steamboat was having near record snowfall. And just a few days/week before we arrived, they had 25 inches of champagne powder. It was amazing. THE most amazing mountain I've been to so far. I think I'll buy a place and move there (maybe, someday, in the far far future).

Just as I've done in the past, here is the trip breakdown, in numbers:

I think you left off "Celine Dion songs played by the shuttle driver, who wasn't joking," I think the answer is 5.
