    Mini rant - RMNP seems to have hit peak clusterfuck. Much of the west side and northern zones are fucked after Cameron Peak and East Troublesome. Timed access permits starting next month. Lottery system for backcountry (missing a ton of sites after fires) for late summer and fall. Tons of hurdles!
    I was at Colony Lakes last week. snow was down to the first parking area. Probably no longer. We have plenty of snow and the alpine is good but getting through the woods to get to it conditions suck. Who wants to wear ski boots when it is 60* out. Rio Grande FS roads are great right now gates are closed and no one around. I think the single track is still wet some places been staying off. Other than the crowds was a good season in Wolf Creek.

    Whip has a couple of comps if anybody needs a lift ticket.

    I'd like to encourage people to check out Monarch. I was so impressed with the early season skiing, really fun not to be stuck on crowded groomers. Also, they cleared out beetle kill recently and opened up a lot of nicely pitched terrain.

    This coming Friday? Never skied Monarch.

    Sorely tempted to skip a couple of meetings. After all the word ski is right there in the word skip...

    Hmmmm

    It's like Eldora but with better snow, better weather, and without the Front Range.

    First, it was a joke. And I'll admit that I don't know Monarch super well and what you say is true of Mirkwood, Eldora has nothing like that, but overall Monarch isn't very big or very steep and IME the two are actually pretty comparable from a terrain POV. I don't think Monarch has anything as good as Salto, as one example, unless you hike. I will certainly grant you the management, never thought to include that in my joke but no argument here. Lord knows I have been a frequent critic of Eldora over the years.

    Again, it was a joke, because EWG skis Eldora a lot and I have skied there with him.

    Man, tough crowd here.

    For a small vert and acreage hill, Monarch hits above its weight class. I dig that place.
    Eldora does too, but only if you have listed as a strawweight.

    If you are really arguing over whether Monarch or Eldora is better, you probably play golf at municipal courses, drive a Chevy cavalier, and listen to Winger. Just sayin. NTTATWWT.

    But I like em both.

    FFS. I made a joke. And people corrected my joke.

    Of course Monarch is better. It has WAY better snow, WAY better weather, isn't overrun with FRangers (which has lots of "makes it better" facets to it), and has Mirkwood. Oh, and better management. And better bloody marys, forgot to mention that one before.

    That said, if you subtract Mirkwood, is there really an argument that non-hike to terrain at Monarch is better? Assuming the same snow (which is a hudge assumption, that's part of the joke)? If so, I'd love to hear about it, because it means I have missed some good stuff at Monarch. Because my joke was entirely based off the fact that the terrain isn't better absent hike-to terrain.

    All the little ski areas have their charm, even Eldora. But making jokes about another small area being similar to Eldora is serious bizness, apparently.

    No. Because Iím not arguing about it. It is a stupid argument. Go skiing you fucking nerds.

    Danno, non of this is directed specifically at you so settle down. Jump in the old Cavalier and head on down to Park Hill for a nice 9 holes.

    If tele skiers golf, do they use a length of hose between the head and the grip of the club instead of a metal shaft? Or do they just kneel while they swing?

    Curious.
