Skip Vail. Every ride is a non-stop facepalm of depression.

The coverage in LCC is pretty good. Nothing like last year, but everything is pretty much filled in and once it softens is pretty fun. I'd skip CO this year.

If you're still coming through Denver, I have a room and free ticket to Loveland for you. Let me know.
I'll also be golfing and riding this weekend if you skip out on mud and rock dodging.The best things in life aren't things.

Thanks for all of the updates and suggestions. Based on these I am rethinking my plans and planning to be flexible.
Yesterday I was given a wonderful tour-de-Squaw by JLA415 and Gonetoalpine that really set a high standard for what spring skiing should be. I may need to either lower my standards and/or change my route/destinations/timing.
I'll be happy to get some skiing in to give me some breaks on around a 2000 mile drive.

I'm about to start heading west on highway 80. I hope to post again later today or sometime tomorrow before I make my skiing selection(s) and directions.
Crampedon, thanks for posting the inspirational video. Even with the rockin' soundtrack to move me, I think that I'll skip Vail this time. Will those invincible skis be offered soon in gear swap?
Thanks again to everyone else who has offered beta, suggestions, etc.

After over 15 hours on the road yesterday I felt the need, the need for skied. So I took 76 to 70 and skied A-basin this morning and Breckenridge this afternoon just to break up the drive and having that I gots to know feeling. A-basin had less terrain with better snow and Breck had more terrain with worse snow. Still gIlad that I got some skiing in. I'll be on my way to Utah right after I finish my tuna sandwich.

I made it to Utah, curremtly using my free Canyons ticket (on the Gondola now) it looks thin and gloppy here. Already thinking about where to ski tonmorrow and how much it will cost.

Almost positive I can roust a 1/2 pricer if you want to get silly with the solisunday crew on the last day.
Not sure if they will open any access to any goods but it's a party

Bird was good today, a little heavier snow on the lower half but still really fun. Still snowing up there, tomorrow should be pretty fun. North facing runs on the Peruvian side are holding some incredible snow on the upper mountain, like mid Winter powder quality stuff.

Skied Solitude today. Honeycomb Canyon was great fun.
A big thank you to skifishbum for showing me the lay of the land and how to get to the goods as well as how to get back.
About to head further west now.

A belated photo follow-up.
Wrestling Poster in Nebraska:
I was tempted to return to Nebraska just for this event. Notice the name of the sports shop on the upper right.
I wonder why no one is buying gas here:
Arapahoe Basin, Colorado, April 13, 2012:
This was my first time at A-Basin. I'd like to come back when they have more snow.
Breckenridge, Colorado, April 13, 2012:
I've been here a couple of times before. It is also better with more snow.
Solitude, Utah, April 15, 2012:
Honeycomb Canyon provided some fresh. Thanks again to skifishbum for showing me around.
