    He hasn't learned since last year:

    Step-1 - fluff your feathers/pound your chest about how radical you are.
    Step-2 - get called out for not conveying the risks (or your risk tolerance) to others.
    Step-3 - walk it back by: (a) further beating your chest about how radical you are as well as an excellent judge of terrain, snowpack and weather, and (b) qualifying your post by saying trust your own judgement, etc.

    That would be fine (sort of), if he didn't repeat this pattern over and over again. He's the anti-Bruce Tremper, IMHO.

    Until you get caught in a slide, you always made the right assessment.

    What exactly is this event in downtown Denver tomorrow? Is it a contest among pros? A contest for the general public? Can anybody hit the rails? Iím sort of thinking about taking my 4-year-old, but not if itís going to be dumb.

    Was open yesterday too. I wasnít able to get up til 1:30 the past couple days (after work turns) so I wanted to focus on making laps and didnít get up there. Looked like some nice turns up there I was jealous for sure!

    Even if he did know what could happen, teenagers think they are invincible and nothing bad will ever happen to them because the world revolves around them. The worst thing that has ever happened in most of their lives so far is that someone stole their lunch money.

    Saw this from above, it was a pretty steady stream of skiers and snowboarders but the crowd was very light. Don't know how it would have been from up close, but for the effort I'll stay home and watch ski films at home.

    Sounds like ABasin was an Ikonic shitshow yesterday.

    I showed up at 1pm and the pali line was pretty long for two runs then got progressively shorter to where the last 5 runs of the day I skied onto the lift. Lots of Ikon passes, and drunken antics on the beach. I think they rented out 3/4 of the beach. Snow was good, and the runs seemed empty.
