    I think he's probably feels too oogy (I make up words as I see fit) to post this here, but if you feel inclined to help out a worthy dude who lost a shit-ton of valuable stuff: https://www.gofundme.com/chez-stolen-gear

    Man, I hop the lift line reaches all the way to the top of the run. That'd be awesome, Thom can really get the lift line testing of his new skis down.

    Damn...why do people do that to themselves? I often question whether its worth it to wait for 5-10 mins at loveland in october. That looks like a solid hour.

    I did buy an A-Basin 4-pack this year and I am super stoked to ski the steep gullies this year, however.

    Must be all the Jerry's that moved to CO in the past few months. Ride up, make two turns then side step down. Fun!

    Yeah, do you ski all the way to the bottom then side step up? Or stop at the back of the line and lose part of the little vertical that run offers?

    That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.
    That is pretty much half the vertical lost.

    Holy shit, has the number of gapers tripled in Colorado these past 5 years?!

    I know it's a discussion point every year but I find it astounding that people rush to stand in line for an hour to ski the WROD in October but give up on skiing in March. Of course, it's better for us during those phenomenal spring powder days but wow.

    Does anyone know this to actually be true -- or does it just look this way because in Oct everyone is gathered on one damn lift. In March they are spread out over multiple mountains and all their lifts?

    Every person I personally know who is skiing today or this weekend at A-Basin are also people who ski all the through the closure at most mountains, and then a few may/june A-Basin days as well.

    I was referring to the fact that mountains often close mid April with huge bases because "everyone" has stopped skiing and economically they don't push to stay open.

    Yeah I think there is 100x more people skiing in April but it seems “empty” because 8 or 9 mountains are open with nearly 100% coverage and lift capacity

    I think you are casually forgetting that the lowest portions of most mountains, outside of AB and Loveland, are complete shit or dirt by mid April .once that is gone they’re not downloading people

    Spring conditions suck for a lot of people.

    It is the Epic Pass. A shit ton have it. It is how Vail ruins places. Same shitshow shoes up at KW when we have high snow levels, or just powder days. Fuck Vail.

    I got smart & didn't go.

    Ski to the bottom, sidestep/bootpack/skin up to the end of the line ... NOT ;-)

    ^^^ This

    [Edit] I agree with subsequent posts, that it's cool that newbies are stoked - especially the kids.

    It is so retarded but I love it that people are so stoked to ski that they put themselves through that hell to ski the WRD and actually think it is awesome...especially kids and 19 year olds spending their first winter in the mountains. Fuck yeah!

    It's a lot cheaper to run 1 lift at 1 mountain rather than all lifts at many. Most seasonal employees are still a long way from starting I believe...

    Agreed. Good on them and godspeed.
    And there will be a few less people on the slopes the rest of the season while they recover.

    Look on the bright side, at least those people aren't out in the desert. It is most likely still two months until I start getting excited about skiing.

    Two months ! I've got 3 ski trips planned within the next two months.

    yeah, the snow isn't likely to be good, but unless you go on a opening day, the crowds are usually minimal until mid-dec.

    It’s all warm up until the base is somewhat in around New Years anyway.
