    Good enough to tour soon. Certainly feel it on right footers. TBD in variable snow.

    Ran 1.5mi at a solid 14min pace the other day ....

    If you are going to the Jaw, definitely get their burger. I can't imagine how many millions have come off that flattop.

    Nothing fancy, but a damn good burger.

    Potato salad, cucumber salad, and sausages with a great german/belgian beer selection at prosit too.

    Agreed on peppino's. Don't think you can eat more than 2 slices.

    There is a funky little gift shop in an old train house on Main street that is worth a few minutes to look through. Shares bathrooms with Prosit.

    The rest is right on.

    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'm always amazed how generic but tasty Hacienda Real is. It's not like they do anything crazy but it's always good.

    So, is any of the touring on the front range any good yet?

    I do know where I'm stopping for food now if I go that way.

    There was some good 7-10 days ago. Wind and sun seems to have taken care of that. If we get a couple inches Monday some of the typical early season spots might be worth skiing.

    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.

    My bases are patched after Tuesday ... if we get 6", they'll come out again. Otherwise, I think I'll move my binders onto some rock skis for November. Last I recall, that's why I still have those skis ;-)

    Damn, Prosit was the one I forgot. Get some Le Chouffe and a brat.

    As far as weather and conditions, snow sucks everywhere. Winter has been called off. Omega high pressure for many months, might snow in March if we are lucky. I hear Ikon and Epic are considering refunding everyone.

    Eldora's website said they had their smallest beginner chair open today. It's not even close to being open. A bunch of parents of 1st time skier's were none too happy. Also when people tried to back their cars up to the bunny hill area, as has been done for years, the parking attendants started yelling at them like they were assholes. There was one postage stamp sized no parking sign that didn't exactly make it clear that 30ish parking spots are no longer in use. In other words, a typical Eldora experience.

    On the plus side my 5 year old just skied like a boss for 4 hours straight and wants more after lunch.

    Eldora strikes again. Congrats on the ski day though. Kick ass. It’s awesome when the kids don’t need the tiny lift anymore.

    My latest and final winter outlook for North America is now available.

    For Colorado, it is set to have a mildly above average snowfall season per forecast. Details in the link above.

    In the short term, looks like something of note snowfall wise for the CO mountains next weekend. Snowfall on this Monday as well, but these snowfalls focus on the Central and Eastern parts of Colorado with a few inches for the Front Range.

    Did any really expect the October snow pattern to continue in to November?

    My gut tells me we're going to have shitty snow, loooooong lines and limited terrain until mid-December.

    Very unmotivated after skiing Copper for a few hours. py East coast skiing with crowded slopes. At least we can mountain bike.

    Could be worse. Mammoth’s opening looked sad.

    Went to Keystone today, Abasin yesterday. Keystone was total crap, and extremely crowded. Grand prix skiing with 1000 of your closest friends. At least it was a long run though.
    Might be the first time in a very long time that I went to Abasin on a Saturday. Lower lot wasn't even full, showed at noon, did a few laps, short lines, walked into the bar and got a seat right away. It was awesome, but the skiing sucked.

    Pretty much throwing in the towel till after Thanksgiving barring a very large storm.

    The variable conditions coupled with the mix of beginners next to people hauling ass and doing side hits was definitely reminiscent of my formative days in the Poconos. Saw a few near misses but luckily didn't witness any injury.

    The funniest shit: people goproing their run on the icy WROD. Seriously, who’s watching that?

    Saw a guy filming his 3 year old daughter in the middle of the maelstrom of "Gapers on ice". Not taking into account the hundreds of inept skiers and boarders skidding by at Mach 5.
