Colorado: Quick Vail Skate

Well I’m just about done here. We’ve got a little bit of work to do tonight, and then I’m flying back tomorrow morning…

This morning I woke in Vail. After a breakfast burrito to keep us going, we had a few hours to look around vail. As a resort it’s pretty impressive; expensive. Everything’s right on hand at the base of the hill. Plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and the like…

I got talking to a couple of guys working in the Quiksilver store and they told me there was a decent skate park in the village (Lionshead). It turned out that the park is on the top of the car park structure. It seemed strange, but we checked it out on the way out of town.

And it’s a good park. With a good view too; right in the mountains. Sun blazing. Beat that. So I skated for 45 mins or so. The mini ramp was awesome. Fast, and it’s been a while, so it took a little time to get things going. At 8000ft+ it takes more breath too. That was fun. Here’s a few pictures:









What a place for a skate park…
