    Fuck that. Each bike ride feels like it could be the last. Works for me.

    You better bet your ass that Vail Mountain won't let this happen ever again. They're going to have ropes up for Chair 5 on busy days at the top and limit people entering like the Eisenhower Tunnel!

    Great move by Al and team to drive up pass sales. Iím sure they are seeing higher volume than last season.

    Likely going to be tough to get a res or day ticket on pow days.

    That's when you hang out with your wife and kid so much they get sick of you... then you get a pass for a few extra get in shape early season days...

    I mean, that's just what I hear.


    It was a brisk one this morning!

    It was deliberately later in the day. Wife wanted to ride it while there were still leaves, so this weekend was our last chance. I think we hit it just right considering. There weren't too many leafer-gapes, and light was still good till I was waiting at the bus stop to catch a ride back up.

    Awesome chilly morning ride on the North Trail in Vail. Felt so amazing after such a hot summer in Denver.

    I like skiing as much as anyone. But I think September is my favorite month in Colorado.
    The weathers just so nice!

    ^^^ yes but Iím torn. I love June when you have emerald green, wildflowers and snow capped peaks. Or April with empty slopes and deep powder.

    Really canít seem to make the decision if I want to drop $300 on a copper 5 pack right now. May just roll the dice and see if they end up doing a friends and family 5 pack deal in December and have a friend get me one if they do. Good chance they donít do those this year though.

    Is there a reasonable way to ski Copper without riding the bus? Of not, how do you feel about riding that bus?

    Pay parking or walk from the free lot to Super Bee. Someone here told me there is a path that sometimes is obscured by a snowbank.

    I think Iíd be ok with a half empty bus, windows wide open, masks on and a 5 min ride to Super Bee.

    You can walk to super b and if you get there early it really isnít too far of a walk from alpine parking lot.

    Iím fine to ski the basin most days but itís not always the best place to be when itís blowing snow sideways. Thing is you donít really know that for sure until you wake up in the morning and look outside to see what the weather is doing. At which point will you be able to get a parking reservation for copper? Who knows. I do have a friend that lives in east village too.

    ^^^^^ Good to know. Only skied there a handful of times. Midweek rope drop on Tucker was among the best skiing I had last winter.

    Big blow down from the labor day storm. Was pretty crazy to see on Corona Pass over the weekend.

    Per my brother who is one of the ski school managers, there's currently no indication that they will offer any friends and family 5-packs. I was hoping for the same.....

    Your brother know if they will open up normal ski school this year? We have 2 younger ones that had a blast last year in ski school at copper and were planning to do the same this year.
