    Keystone snow stake showing 11" so far. I just left Frisco and it was NUKING....not snowing much in Breck though.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    So 3" in Vail, 18" at the Basin. Discuss.

    Was planning on going to Vail today, now probably sticking closer to home. Basin is going to be nuts, discount tix for their anniversary too.

    Think this is a good day to bring out the protests considering how heavy the snow is. Maybe should have brought my powderboards even.

    Happy enough with the 10 inches here in steamboat considering it was lightly raining until about 11pm

    Real dense snow at Vail. More like 5" since it snowed pretty hard from 5-6 this morning.

    Super high density snow. Keystone got 18"+ since 4PM yesterday, but high temps and high wins meant it skied like 8" of thick wind affected pow on all the rope drops. (Then the gondola shut down due to winds and I-70 showed up, long lines, I left). Almost went to Vail, maybe I should have for BSB.

    Let's say I'm super happy Mr. Plow took care of most of my driveway because the deck and stairs and sidewalks were a lot of work these last few.

    This storm should get Keystone and Abasin to almost all of their terrain open just as soon as patrol can get to bombs, cuts, pads and boo. Lots of ropes dropped today (Keystone patrol was working ahead) patrollers were busting their butts all over. I bet they'll have everything open except East Wall by Thursday. Breck will open T-bar.

    *MAYBE* Loveland will open one green run on chair 6? By Thursday?

    Drove down from Eldora today at ~10:15. The entire shelf road was stopped cars, backed up to the high school. The resort had one dude trying to get cars around an un-plowed 180 degree turn up into the top parking lot. If you were in that mess, I'm sorry.

    They reported 12", skied like 3". One of these years they will figure out how to operate a ski resort. I guess I'm just here to complain about shit.

    Fun day at vail with very wind affected snow. The report was 3 inches but it skied a lot deeper on the right aspects.

    Ricky's ridge was the best. Really nice over there. Huge ass line at chair 5 after 2 runs so I skied the frontside for the rest of the day.

    Not bad. Wind was really blowing on the back

    Berthoud today was good powder.

    As usual someone pushing it:



    Then total shitshow at parking lot with johnny law blocking the entrance to the lot and then yelling at people who stopped to drop off hitchhikers on the road. What does he expect people to do with hitchhikers if they can't get into the lot?

    I think that he was ticketing and or having cars parked on the road towed but he was making it worse by blocking the entrance. I guess that he thought the cars should have just kept going and taken the hitch hikers down to Winter Park or something. Or more likely he just didn't think it through or was pissed off at the whole scene. He was bellowing at cars dropping off hitchhikers - stopping in the turn lane to get into the lot or just after the lot in no parking spots.

    Nasty wind this AM at Copper, but west side of hill was a little deeper and lots of blue run ropes dropping. Driving away from the a-basin / keystone parade on 6 was a treat. Yippee !

    Keystone was pretty good today; as mentioned above, skied like less than it was due to the heavy snow, but I went out for seconds around 230 and there were lots of soft turns to be had. Patrollers working their asses off opening new terrain all day. Looks like they'll basically have the whole frontside open soon, and they claim they'll have all 3 mountains open by next weekend.
