Hell Froze Over Today
Just in case you didn't realize it, Hell froze over today. That is, Taos is now open for skiers and snowboarders starting today. Taos founder Ernie Blake was once referenced as saying that the day Taos allows snowboarding would be "when hell freezes over".
Perhaps now they'll change the name on the website from SkiTaos to just Taos. Despite that little omission they've been doing a lot of work in preparation for this day. They added a Snowboard section to the Taos website along with Snowboard School info for those skiers, like the guy in the video below, who may want to expand their mountain experience and learn a new skill.
Yesterday a pile of skier gathered to bid adieu to their skiing only ways. I think the guy who says the mountain is "too narrow, too steep" in this video sounds like a tool.
Then there was this guy whose picture was on the Taos website and likely around the web by now. This image is strong! That's core, no matter how you slide on snow.
