The most logical explanation is that many front rangers jumped ship from Epic to Ikon this season and the traffic at Copper (along with a drop in Epic pass sales) supports that theory. Sure, it will inevitably get busy this season, but it seems that the insanity of the last several seasons has been taken down a couple of notches. Fresh snow on Saturday at Breck and I never waited in a lift line more than a couple of minutes.....I'll take it.

    Thatís music to my ears.
    I havenít come up yet because of the shit show early season was last year.
    I suspect the lack of government cheese and student loan possible repayment starting, is having an effect.

    Bookings are down 20% -25% over last year that can all change quickly lots of things at play to cause the down turn but overall town and ski hill has not reached epic shit show status yet

    Most 40 year Olds are raising kids and don't have time to ski anymore the younger go buy gear look the part but can't ski their way out of a paper bag they just pose at tge hotel bar with their float pack and beacon

    Yeah, I almost got worried walking from the shop to quicksilver to get to Merc at 12:15 but quicksilver had zero line and Merc took maybe 3-5 minutes, so I made it just in time. Thanks Jimmy P for the intel on that one.

    No. Wanker Pancake is the new Breck. My "Keep Winter Park Lame" campaign is backfiring. Apparently, exactly what we got is exactly what the young families want. I mean seriously, we have an in town sledding hill AND a Gravity Haus. The LoHi/Rino/Golden Puffy Coat Mafia is Living the Dream(tm).

    Iím currently working on a residential project up there and have been keeping an eye on whatís comingÖ.WP is going to change big time in the next decade. So many multi family townhome and hotel developments being worked on right now.

    Imagine being a parent with kids, standing in all these huge lift lines. Fuck that shit.

    Ummm, yeah. Things change. It's changed big this past decade. And the decade before that. Change sucks.

    Compared to the change coming, last decade was not much. Exponential growth in the Fraser Valley coming. At least they are building employee housing near the mtn and arenít cunts like Vail residents

    Meanwhile, Iíve seen some Copper line pics online that would make Vail jealous. Fuck, I do think there was an exodus off Epic.

Be prepared to push or pull a car out of the ditch because it gets icy and people bring cars there that shouldnít be there.

    My kids and I go mtb camping at the end of Vasquez road beyond the gate every summer. 4 miles of double track that can accommodate a Burly trailer and nothing so impressive that it attracts people. My son had great pride when he caught a trout this year and fried it with huckleberries on the campfire. It is near wilderness that is easy to enjoy with kids.

    This worked out great. Definitely not the only one out there, but less crowded than the elk creek loop. Thanks.

    You talking the incoming projects after gondola-driven rezoning around vazquez rd and cooper creek, or is there even more?

    Yes and up valley as well. And the whole Roam area, the Arrow on Main St, and off Main Street to the west.

    Rope drops on Bash and Balch at Wanker today were awesome. And no traffic home on 40 or 70 was a bonus.

    Horseshoe bowl opened to the top for hike-to yesterday and it was quite good. Filled in pretty damn well and they're saying they're only waiting on snowmaking to wrap up on claimjumper as well as moving some snow on pika to get tbar open, so later this week!

    Simply not bad out there for early december all around.

    Oh I miss Breck a lot! Love Horseshoe bowl so much.

    Sorry your campaign isn't working.

    A couple was recently overheard in Crested Butte saying "It certainly isn't as opulent as Jackson." "Yeah, it's kind of podunk." So there's hope in my little podunk corner of the world.

    Got out for a few runs up Butler on Friday. Was still pretty thin. Hoping the storm this week pans out.
