The flowers may be telling us that spring has come early to Colorado, but global climate change has not yet been able to defeat the mighty Ruby Hill.

On Tuesday we caught Anthony George helping a kid he met in the park snowboard down a patch of diehard snow on the incline that is oft-shredded when the powder is fresh. On this day, however, it’s a lovely opportunity for a few runs in a t-shirt.
