Velocity Basin Snow

Velocity Basin  July 24, 2011

Velocity Basin  June 26, 2012

Got a late start getting to the mountains of Colorado this year and missed the snow. Not only was the snow pack less this year but it started melting much earlier. The above photos show the difference between the snow at Velocity Basin now and the end of July last year. The snow in the high country always makes for more dramatic photographs.
Velocity Basin was where the world record ski run of around 130 miles an hour was set several years ago. It is supposedly where Red Bull built and repaired after avalanches the pipe for Shaun White to practice in.
