    Knowing this guy he's all over it. If there's a way to recoup some of his money, or get it transferred to next season, he'll do it.

    First black diamond for the big guy.
    Nice roos! Love the hockey stick technique. I do the same thing with my 2 year old. Just never put it in the ski racks on the outside of a gondola... I pulled a total gaper move and when getting onto a full Gondi with 2 kids and carrying our 3 pairs of skis and hockey stick decided to put the stick and my skis on the outside and bring their 2 pair of skis inside. Turns out the hole in the bottom of the ski rack is large enough for the butt of my stick to slide through so halfway up with a gust of wind it went straight down through, hanging down by the blade. So there I am trying to lasso it out the window with a pole strap and pry open the door with no luck. Needless to say it snapped like a twig when we came into the top station...

    I used to use a similar technique when my kids were liddle. Except... you know, with a ski pole.

    Nice to get back to Phoenix/Spellbound today, since it never opened last year. What a war zone back there. Conditions most likely to be encountered in descending order: avy debris> bed surface> bare ground> stiff windboard> skied up/bootpacked snow> powder. That said I did have some good turns... Frontside opened to flatiron as well (also never opened last year)

    Luckily I ski at Winter Park where they just built a brand new gondola that doesnít have ski racks, so I have to carry my skis in the cabin like a fucking heathen. And they named it ďThe Gondola.Ē

    Weather was good today.

    Your skinny ones, unless you want to go the the cirque. All 6 turns were open today.

    The hill is in great shape. Things are open. Snowbanks are high.

    How often does The Peak have enough coverage to reasonably ski from the summit?

    Good to hear it is open, hoping for some snow out of this next storm and maybe that'll help shape things up.

    Coverage is decent right now, but it's low priority and needs several clear days before they bother. All of the front side has to be open first, too.

    Anyone traveling to get these goods? I'm pondering durango but fuck it's far. Never got off my ass and acquired a more fuel efficient vehicle yet either. How does it ski the day after a storm? All tracked to hell (purgatory) or still fresh and fun?

    Nice weekend in the 60s in Denver/Golden/Boulder. Changed it up with trail running and climbing, now ready for more powder this week.

    I'm considering a trip to Purgatory, Powderhorn or Powder Mountain this week. Probably try to ski tues-thurs

    I can't speak for Purg, but Wolf Creek has untracked, especially in the trees, for a week after a storm. The only thing keeping me from slaying more last week was the snow settling and turning into concrete. Wolfy is about 1.5 hours from Durango. Also, Telluride is about two hours from Durango, depending on weather, and Silverton, maybe forty five minutes. Not a bad place to set up base for a few days.

    Git Some!!!

    Yup many good days at Wolf. Although it seems I'm usually there during a storm. Maybe cause it always snows there. BFD back in town yet? I think he's in Utah. We should have a party when he gets back. I'd have to buy Wolf tickets but that's cool. I have 3 free days at Purg I'd like to check it out just for the hell of it. Looks like this storm has a bullseye on it. I have free days at Powderhorn too, had one good day there way back when, only been once. Had many many good days at Monarch and have 3 there as well. Would make a good circut lap. Now isn't really the time with work and vehicle but tempting especially since north central mountains are reported to get skunked.

    Although this jet steam looks promising.

    I want to make this same roadie (purgatory, monarch days, and then maybe a random Silverton splurge) if the snow lines up.

    Unfortunately with work this is not possible this week. However Iíd be down for that run later in Feb or early to mid March...
    You should have been here yesterday!

    Crazy event yesterday here.

    I was skiing a lot of 2-8" wind smeared cream cheese with nice fluff once it got kicked into the air. Crazy when the fronts moved through. The easterly aspects were great on Snowmass, the snow was sluffing really easily though. May be an interesting cycle this week if things step down in the BC or the more loaded inbounds areas. Most of the pillows I skied were rather supportive, super fast exits.

    Patrol was bombing late afternoon, much to my dogs dismay.
    I didnít get above the Nob today, but I bet Highland Bowl was good.

    Round 2 coming in warm and windy.
