    Any time you can get good skiing before the holiday shitshow is a good season. Some years you get it, some years you don't.

    The start to this season is well above average, up to 198% at some ski areas in CO as of December 1st. This after an abysmal season last year... so yes, Deb, people are excited.

    Very sneaky 4” today. More like 6” new in the Beavers trees. That on top of everything else this week.

    Zuma opens tomorrow. That should reduce wear and tear on the better terrain even more.

    Best thing about the Beavers chair is that once people go back there, they can't get back to Pali very easily without a long run down the front side, so you kinda get stuck there. Less traffic on Pali means it doesn't get tracked out by 10am. I rode till noon today and was still finding untouched everywhere on the front side.

    They were also working the Gullies a little today. Would be nice if those would get open asap.

    Yeah, was shocked how untracked it was all morning!

    Also, I’m seeing less people in the Beavers now...must be lots of pissed skiers who wanted groomers in there

    Yo Jay, Outliers are included in the calculation but it still lands as just 112% which isn’t all that much, hardly well above the average especially when last year places were at 10-20% this time of year. In this age of instant media instagramification everyone wants to make a 12% increase in snowpack all time bro!

    No, it's been above average.....at least around here. As of late, since snowfall has tapered, the numbers are trending toward average.....but the start to the season has most definitely been above average. Many of the mountains around Summit and Eagle have had their earliest terrain openings ever......that doesn't happen in an average start to the season. Post/username FAIL.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    Come on guys - you and I know the difference between "average" and "200% above average" in Colorado in the early season is like 9" of snow.

    People have been saying best snow in 2 years down here. Graph agrees, but after the last two starts, close to average feels like a lot.

    9" of 45% moisture content snow would do it, actually!

    or 54" of our more typical 7.5% moisture content snow.

    Yep. That uptick in Feb. was from a storm w/ a 30+ inch day. That day was about a seventh of our ytd.

    Highlands is opening up terrain prior to their actually typical opening date for the resort..... I'll look into the numbers in a bit, but this is a great start, and definitely above average on the hill.. We're probably JUST at or above average down low though....

    Breck has been pretty good, that's true, but the other area's not so much. I remember back early 2000's one of the opening days in mid November at A-basin was 100% open terrain, now THAT was all time. Right now A-basin is still only at about 40% open, and Pali has more sharks than something else that has a lot of sharks. I just think it's interesting how everyone's expectations have lowered because the last 10 years have been pretty terrible for skiing in Colorado, so that now that in Dec we are at 112% of snowpack, which while above average statistically speaking, is much closer to average than above, everyone is all bro brah all time conditions look at the sick gnar pow pow on my instagram facebook twitter post.

    Except the areas that you're talking about aren't at 112% of snowpack - that is statewide. In the N and E of the state, the pack is 25-45% above normal. Loveland has 135"+ YTD. That is way above average for them.
