Colorado got a dusting of snow on Sunday, and two guys skied Silverton Mountain


Ski season began on Sunday at Silverton Mountain for a guide and a patroller employed there who were willing to climb above 12,000 feet to earn their turns.

That’s because Silverton and other parts of Colorado’s high country saw widespread measurable snowfall over the weekend, sending people’s anticipation of winter into overdrive.

“I think they had a very good time. You needed rock skis, and it was a dangerous day. [But] Silverton has some of the most hard core ski bums that are out there, so anytime there’s snow, they want to take advantage of it,” Silverton spokeswoman Jen Brill said about ski guide Evan Alsup and patroller Calvin Davenport.
