    I LOVED doing those side hits... when I was 9.

    I called the COO a nazi once... that got my pass pulled for the day. Wonder what this guy gets for putting up a 25 minutes youtube complaint about getting into it with yellow jackets on a green? Who the fuck has time to watch that drivel? Who the fuck head cams side jibbing the beginner green run?

    A supreme JONG, that's who.

    Basin actually felt kinda busy today. I mean there wasnít really a line at Pali or beavers but still.

    Took a bad one off the side of the traverse to international today. there is a nasty dip in there right now that you couldnít see in the flat light today. Skied it yesterday just fine.

    He gets all butthurt like he is going slow, but he fell straight on his ass after doing a tiny 360 and then almost took out another gaper.

    Dude is a major geek too. Just look at him.

    I almost qualified that I'm not hating on the kids, just dingus behavior like this. You summarized it nicely.

    Can anyone in CB give a conditions report on how close they are to opening the T-bars and associated terrain? Hoping to make it down there a few times next month.

    I have exactly the same question as Name Redacted, though with a slightly more immediate interest. I'm in CB area through the week, mostly working but keen to catch the steeps if they open. Do they typically say anything in advance, or do I just keep obsessively checking the lift status page?

    Seems pretty snowy around here, but I haven't a clue whether that terrain is nearly ready, or far from it.

    Thanks!

    Question for the Breck skiers: is F Lot a good place to park during the week? Does it fill up early? Just based on Google Maps it seems like a convenient location but I've always just used the gondola lots in the past.

    F lot is a good place anywhere on that side of town is a good place and it does fill up quick, beaver run has a pay skier lot too
    smart people avoid the gondola peak 7 and 8 base areas
    starting over by peak 9 is relaxing and enjoyable
    breck is best used when you don't ever go to the base areas unless your tired and need a break and like people
    parking costs $45 at my house so no

    They are bombing up there as I type this. Keep your fingers crossed. That's typically a sign that it might be opening soon. If too much slides when they bomb it it can't open, but hopefully it's thin enough (weird thing to type) that it holds when they bomb.

    The snow coming end of week could put it over the top if it doesn't look good to them now.

    Usually there are rumors in town just before North or High opens, but I haven't heard anything. I'm banking on the bombing, and hoping.

    Thank you Beece. I too have been listening to the bombs and hoping they are a good sign.

    Regardless it's (almost) always a welcome sound in a ski setting.

    Itís great. Dry, fairly uncrowded trails with the occasional ice patch in the shade to keep you on your toes.

    I nearly lost my pass twice last season because of the Keystone safety douches. Part of the reason I bailed on epic and now enjoy the goods elsewhere.

    Anyone know how the wind was up on berthoud today? I know A-bay was super windy. I am getting off of the flu and looking for some fresh turns but not gonna put myself through the coughing fit if its wind chop and just save myself for the crowds this weekend.

    Just a PSA. If you find the ski PM Skiwurrel

    From the 'Gimme the lowdown on I-70 skiing thread'

    "Just throwing this out there not sure which thread is for Colorado;

    My friend was involved in an avalanche off grizzly peak beside abasin recently, lost a single 194 dynastar xxl pro rider(new black & orange version) with a marker kingpin. Does anyone check that area out and might find it? or know where I should post?

    Thank you!"

    Ha. It wonít be sharks. Itíll be 100 yard long cheese graters.

    100% worth it.
