    4" report at Vail and 3-4" now since the report and still snowing. The snow is pretty dense, so it's shaping up to be a nice storm day. Windy, too, so free refills in the right spots.

    Edit to add: Photo from yesterday shows some spots to avoid. Shark infested waters.

    Yep. I know I should be stoked for any snow, but it's hard to get excited for a couple of inches and flat light.

    You know it’s gonna dump in May when we want to be mountain biking.

    Snowmass is actually skiing pretty good.
    It’s still snowing hard, this will help a lot.

    Ajax picked up that additional 4” that the forecast was showing. It’s one of those rare times it snows hard without much being on the radar. Back of Bell was skiing pretty deep.

    Well, the good news for me is that I've never wanted to ride a bike in May. 2nd best month for skiing and all...

    I keep thinking about the spring skiing in '11-'12. As crappy as that winter was, it was a good spring. It never did snow, even in the spring, but the upside was that there was never a dust storm either, and the steeps didn't just get schmooed out after a late spring storm. So it was great even though everyone else was riding bikes. Fingers crossed that we have a silver lining spring.

    Got back into town yesterday and decided to go skiing today.

    Nice 6 inches of creamy, moderately dense snow at ABasin. Good base building snow, and heavy enough that it covered up any crust underneath.

    Still pretty thin in the trees. I hit a fatass downed tree and ate shit hella hard.

    Agreed that this is great base building snow. Definitely on the denser side, hopefully this snow can help cover some of the sharks.

    I was at Breckenridge on Thursday and was pleasantly surprised with the conditions of what was open, with a few exceptions. The Lake Chutes and some of the other runs off of that ridge had incredibly punchy snow. Skiing it was fine but that area needs some serious skier compaction.

    I can attest that sharks were definitely NOT covered anywhere around the Basin. All these storms keep hitting on the weekend so snow is immediately scraped off by the crowds. Good year to own a ski repair shop.

    What is up with that this year? Global warming?

    I blame Joel Gratz.

    WP skied well this morning. Starry skies at 11pm last night, 6-8” by morning when lifts opened. Cold and wind (and bad roads) seemed to keep a lot of people away. Skied untouched for two hours before heading back to the FR.

    Jane was 100% full by 8:15 today, attendant was waving people off at the turn off. I stayed on Berthoud due to WP being such a shit show today. Not sure where keeping many people away comes from. Snow Stake had 5'' of fresh on it this morning at 9am.

    Seems like Copper and WP have been more crowded this season. People jumping off the Epic pass?

    I don’t ski MJ on a new snow day. Too many people. WP side always skis well with new snow.

    Breck was deep today....14" or so. Imperial Chair never opened, but caught the rope drop out onto Peak 7 from the tbar.....tittays. Tomorrow will be great as well.
    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.
