That evening we had beef stroganoff with real heavy cream for dinner. It was pretty good, but I prefer it made with sour cream.
The next morning we loaded up and headed back out on the road. By 10am we had made it to Canon City and stopped in to by some wine at the Holy Cross Abbey. We bought the Syrah and the Reisling. By 12:30 we had met up with Eric and his entourage at the Gunnison airport to pick up Brian. We all said our quick hellos then had lunch in downtown. Afterwards we made the 30 minute trek to Mount Crested Butte and our house for the next 4 days.
On our way in, we got our first real look at just how little snow Crested Butte has received so far. It was really weird. Lots and lots of brown grass. And when you looked at the mountain it was especially wierd. Grass, then snow where the run is, then grass again, and then snow where another run is! I though to myself that skiing on that was going to be interesting.
So, after we unloaded the car, we loaded back up and headed to the ski resort to rent our ski boots and skis.
