    just got back from Hooper. Steady stream down the gunbarrels. Getting passed going 65 people in a hurry. Van lifers filling Shaw Creek rest area. Looked like a holiday weekend in Moab. Gonna be Epic. Looks like avie control tomorrow morning bonus for South Fork. Heard Sunday is going to be a locals appreciation day although did not see it on their site. Just checked shows when you reserve your ticket

    Covid+ weak winter everywhere else in CO+ powder starved masses + lots of pow + Saturday= gong show. Are they *really* restricting capacity? Because if not, this could very well be their busiest weekend ever.

    The words are definitely English but I have no idea what this says.

    Hooper = hot springs on the eastern, more spiritual, side of the valley
    gunbarrels = 285
    getting passed going 65 = OP is a safe driver
    Shaw Creek rest area + van lifers = ?
    Avy control = sleeping in on the east side of the pass
    Sunday = everybody is a local
    In other words, YOLO and FOMO

    I obviously did not ski today. Meh.
    The best snow has some body to it. Blower powder is overrated, particularly with modern equipment. I'll choose snow that has some "bounce" to it over pixie dust every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Shaw Creek rest area is, I think, the rest area on 160 between del norte and south fork. Van lifers are hipster front rangers with their pimped out vans.

    I was just offering some observations and what I thought was some useful information. Shaw Creek has running water and heated bathrooms and plenty of parking. Besides those amenities you will not be getting in the way of the snowplows trying to do their jobs. More vehicles camping in the Lobo lot than I have ever seen and it sucks when the plows can not get in and get it plowed out completely.

    Believe me, I love the bounce. And blower is also amazing when you have the base. But we have neither at the moment. :/

    Got 3" last night. Faucet just turned back on about 10 minutes ago. Temps still warm. Maybe this push will get us set up for a proper February. I'm still hopeful. Kinda.

    I totally understood what BFD was saying. Ha. Been here too long I guess.

    Probably not. Pattern change in 10 months.

    Even Joel’s latest says he’s not optimistic into early Feb. Little dribs and drabs of snow (his words).

    Just sold my spot for $140. That might be the highest price ever paid for a lift ticket.

    Yeah yeah, I know... The one time I'm an optimist rather than a realist. Just...trying something different...

    What a crap season. I pretty much decided last month to chase sunshine instead of pow on the rare days I do ski. It's working out so far.

    There were a LOT of people. But seems like the vast majority have no idea where to go at Wolf Creek and I had zero issues finding full, untracked lines until I left at 2:00pm.

    Tomorrow should be interesting.
    You should have been here yesterday!

    I’m lined up for Monday. Hopefully a smaller shitshow. And hopefully enough snow to give my big kid Shiros a proper day.

    You forgot to say they're all black crows and DPS, too.
