In Colorado, it's safe to say that if it snows, snowboarders will follow.
After a snowstorm over the weekend, more than 20 inches of snow landed in the area of Morrison, Colorado. As a result, the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre was covered in fresh powder and temporarily became a skiing slope.
When word got out that the amphitheater was covered in fresh powder, some snowboarders decided to take advantage of the rare opportunity to ride down the seats.
Below is an Instagram video posted in the account of user Wes Hughes (@west.hues) showing what Red Rocks looked like after the storm:
The snowboarders were reportedly asked to leave the amphitheater as snow sports are not permitted on the site. The participants also had to move barriers in order to access the area, according to reports. However, once approached by security, the individuals complied and left.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre does not allow alpine skiing or snowboarding on its property (i.e., the amphitheater itself); however, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are allowed in the trails nearby.
In the future, it's probably best to avoid trying any snow sports inside the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, as the experience will be short-lived.
A historic blizzard began on Sunday, March 14, and continued all the way into Monday. The weekend storm is now considered the fourth-largest snowstorm ever recorded in Denver. And more snow is expected on Tuesday!
