    Reading the forecast discussion this morning made me laugh a little. The first and last sentences:

    "A stagnant pattern will continue over North America."
    ...
    "It`s a ways off but at least and [sic] indication of a pattern change."

    Sooo, 2 weeks maybe?

    Eldora had a combination of really nice snow and really long lines today. Singles line went all the way back to the snow fence at the throat entrance off the run.

    But sunny and good snow = damn nice time. Plus some good people watching

    A Basin was cold AF this morning then warmed up nicely. I never waited more than a couple minutes for a lift. Saw LOTS of Icon passes.

    Was at WP 1230-230pm. after a morning tour on BP. Zero wait in the singles line on Gemni. $1 Coors light at Derailer. It was busy with people, but lines didn't seem too crazy. Someone in the lift line asked if Pano was open....

    Best skier on the mountain today wasn't a skier, but rather @ISBD's newly adopted dog (and he didn't lose any Ptex in the process) ...

    While you guys are all basking in the sun with this high pressure system, can anyone give me recommendations for Frisco? Looks like I'll be staying there for a few days this winter and have only passed through before.

    Here's some spots with my impressions, I'm sure other people will have other opinions because they are on the internet.
    Outer Range Brewery- trendy Hazy beers, worth a visit if you are into that kinda thing, although they have a good pilsner now too. "In The Steep" is their flagship and is probably what I'd start with.
    Tavern West- probably my favorite bar/restaurant in Frisco. Higher end pub food, little pricey. We go here a lot.
    Fifth Ave grill- steaks and such, very good
    Vinnys-has great family Italian. You want pasta, go here
    Bagali's- also italian and pretty good. More like wood fired pizzas and small plates,
    Breakfast- Butterhorn, good pastries and decent breakfast, Log Cabin is OK too
    Rocky Mountain Roasters- good coffee and quick breakfast burritos, I like the chorizo ones.
    Moosejaw- classic local dive bar, worth a visit.
    Pazzo's Pizza- best pizza in town, maybe the county.
    Greco's- casual decently priced, but not the highest end of food. Decent beer list.
    Clubhouse- local beers selection and cocktails, good bar scene upstairs.

    That's about all I can think of, sure I'm missing something but I'd say overall, Frisco has some pretty good spots and you won't be disappointed at these.

    x 1 Million.

    This may be the best beer in the state right now.

    Do have to say the little brewery by my place got a few kegs from them and they were each darn good.

    Oh yeah, Outer Range is on my list for sure. I take it HighSide isn't quite in the same league, but is it worth a stop?

    HighSide is way better than the shitty brewery that used to be there. And is making decent beers in a far wider variety of styles than Outer Range.

    Angry James in Silverthorne is better though.

    Moosejaw is worth a couple of Banquets.

    +1 on Outer Range. Owner/brewer is a former Other Half brewer in NYC. If you are not familiar with them, they are producing some of the best EC ipa's I have had and I live in VT. I stumbled on it the first day at Copper a few yrs ago and went back every day for the rest of the week.

    If you are touring breweries I’d also recommend a short trip to Broken Compass on the north side of Breck.

    Angry James is also only a 12 minute bus ride from Outer Range since they are both next to transfer centers.

    Would not say that you shouldn’t go to Highside either. Larger range of styles and the cheese curds are pretty good too.

    One of my friends is a dedicated Pabst and Miller High Life man. Maye we can leave him at Moosejaw while those of us who appreciate a good microbrew can head out to Outer Range.

    He might like the pils at OR or at Broken Compass. But he will probably love the Jaw.

    I'd add-
    Hacienda Real for Mexican.
    The Himalayan restaurant in the same plaza has cheap, delicious food. the service leaves something to be desired, so don't be in a rush.
    Kemosabe has quite decent sushi (it's not as good as Mountain Flying Fish in Breck tho).
    Pure Kitchen (over by Whole Foods) is a delicious, seasonal farm to table, with lots of organic and sustainable sourced ingredients, little spendy.

    10 Mile Music Hall has some good acts coming through this winter. Bring ear plugs, 'cause it's loud! (or I'm just old).

    And YES, if you like IPAs......it doesn't get any better than Outer Range.
    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.

    I did not know that. Now it all makes sense. I couldn’t figure out how they just showed up in the middle of ski country fully formed producing THAT type of stuff.

    The pils at Angry James is solid as well.
