    I thought it was Vail at first. Without seeing the horizon, they look about identical.

    Careful, we don't need this thread turning into another soapbox.

    Skip the mountain coaster and alpine slides. I want to see two mile long lazy rivers and rapid rides.

    They are not sacrificing primo terrain, at least not at Breck , Copper or Steamboat . I could care less. Backcountry is nice , so are lifts.

    All resorts are trying to expand their market, throughout the year.
    The coasters at Snowmass, on just about the flattest terrain there.
    It will never effect anything I Ski and if it keeps the gondola open daily for MTBing thru September, Im all in.

    Hopefully this year will be like last year. A gorgeous warm Nov followed by nonstop snow for two months.

    Agreed, but sadly I️ think there is already enough snow that will stick around and create havoc in the backcountry as more snow falls on top.

    Why can't we just get one of them on board by "diversifying" with a bad ass Whistler-esque bike park, or for that matter putting a legit year round bike park in the front range.

    Golden too. Lift accessed trails at Heritage would be great. Apex would be "sidecountry".

    The difference is new trails in Idaho Springs, including legal, shuttle-able, downhill only trails, is likely to actually happen.

    Heritage, not so much.

    "Virgina Canyon Open Space (Area 28)is approximately 400 acres of land within Idaho Springs. The boundaries run roughly north of the Argo Mine & Mill to the Santa Fe Mine Road and the length of town east to west. It is bisected by Virginia Canyon Road. The land was set aside for recreation since held by the BLM. Before the BLM the land was part of the Louisiana purchase."

    Man, that Louisiana Purchase just keeps paying off... TJ really took those Frenchies to the cleaners

    Cool, some downhill trails in IS would be sweet.

    14 cents an acre. They needed the money to fight the revolution in Haiti.

    Theyve never been very good at this stuff.

    I'm glad this has been brought up again this fall. Some context for the jongs:

    I decided to dive into the numbers a little bit more. Turns out Rontele is sort of right...

    I took the last 8 years of football and Colorado Statewide Peak SWE values. Alabama winning the National Championship correlates quite strongly with low snowfall in Colorado. 0.66 for anyone who knows what a pearson coefficient is. Here's a picture for the dentists out there
