    Well now that they have a two beer limit at CB on-slope bars, Iím guessing youíre right.

    Vail = 4 letter word;
    Free = Vail's 4 letter word.

    Most all of the OG people who were involved with developing Epic Mix are gone now, but it was mostly just all contractors to begin with. They quickly realized Epic Mix Photos was a wasted strategy as well as Epic Mix Racing.

    The truth is, once Alterra goes public and becomes a direct stock market competitor with Vail Resorts (MTN), expect the guns to get unleashed. The only way to continually boost profits for shareholders will be to create more elitism, special perks for the highly wealthy, and products that have INSANE ROI that target the ultra rich.

    Makes sense re: both the app and the future, though I hope that an app wouldn't dictate anyone's skiing choices ?!

    Seeing CAIC post about the fatality today near Cameron Pass. Condolences.

    Latest thoughts on the North American long term outlook:
    The good pattern of snow-bearing weather will eventually expand out to the majority of the Rockies, with the exception of the far Southwest for the 10-20 day period. Tahoe and the Rockies (including Colorado) should both do well out of this period, once the initial 5 or so days pass.

    https://longrangesnowcenter.net/2019...-9th-december/

    The medium term outlook for the next 10 days worth of forecasts shows 10-20” for the Colorado Rockies, with up to 25” in Gunnison County peaks.

    This is probably a good time to plan on meeting at The Jane and then not doing it. I'm pretty much a regular Sunday afternoons followed by closing down Pepperonis.

    Condolences to all those involved. Shitty deal.

    I was up there all day skiing a different zone. Pretty unnerving knowing this was all going down at the same time.

    Challenger ran so some trees/trails off that. (Phantom Bridge over to Sleeper). Sliucebox was knee deep early as well. And Drunken Frenchman.

    It was hammering again at lunch and on top of Berthoud when I left. NW flow!

    EpicMix = Strava

    If you're using either of them, you are a dork, and therefore your holier-than-thou aspersions cast at the other (same but different) dorks cancel out.

    You don't use EpicMix, it uses you.

    Good coverage out there for sure. Imagine Vail is going to open a lot of stuff this weekend. Looks ready.
    Keep getting invalid file for some reason on pic. Anyway, you guys don't like Vail anyway but it's right here so fuck it.
