    Conditions were pretty damn good. Creamy wind whipped snow created great coverage. No hint of a base or ground.

    Jane Update:

    I usually say, "you should have been there yesterday" but everyone was there yesterday. I got there about 2pm and even the Corona Lot was full. As usual, thankfully, no lift lines to speak of. After 25yr., somebody figured out that people can't count or alternate. Mark this date in history, "1/12/18 The Super Gay moved away from the "just fucking go" to the "front row!" lift line system. It was perhaps slightly less retarded.

    The trees are skiable/almost ready depending on your terrain awareness and abilty to "keep your tips up". The settled snow depth varies from about 40" to 0". Those bitching about no Bird Fart need to catch a clue. The whole deal with that terrain this the evac egress. Patrol has to take sleds down the Eagle Wind to the snowmobile pick up (there is always one there), next is a ski doo ride out to Vasquez then the the base via Whistledick/Village Way/Turnpike whatever it's called these days. This has everything to do with opening this lift. It is a lot of work and requires...snow...to build the road. There is no snowcat access.

    Have fun. I think the skiing is pretty good and at least it looks like winter.

    very nice. I was out on Thurs for those 6"s and the lift line system was the older style so it was indeed 1/12. funny.

    I thought the same about the trees. Still about 20" off that magic reported base depth number but enough to get in there. Skiing was pretty good.

    A historic day indeed...I have to wonder if this change is just a holiday weekend thing or a permanent change....same story with the Bird Fart bitching every single year, yet people never seem to catch on or forget when they are told the reason time and again. Welcome back Winter!!!!

    Aspen Mtís skiing well. A bunch of DD runs opened and are getting skied in, but there are still some sharks.
    Highlands and Snowmass still have a ways to go.
    Not many lift lines, none if you know what your doing.

    Not unless it opened late afternoon. We happened to catch the rope drop after coming up Norway. It was really only Columbine and part of Larkspur. Couple of nice deep spots but nothing special. It did help spread the crowd though. They were blasting off the cornice all afternoon...itís getting close.

    The Beavers at ABasin skied very well today. The hike out seems to be an effective crowd deterrent and the traverse isn't a total death track yet.

    Is the whole Beavers area now open, other than the Steep Gullies?

    You forgot Wanker Park.
    I like the official names, but a vulgar version works too.

    If you want rope drops and eagle wind, today is the day. The marketing push is real. The not ready to open stuff will open...I'm told.

    I was up there Sunday. Some snow, maybe skiable, but not great. We decided to ski back down the S side.

    Thanks for the beta. How did the S side ski?
