    Peak 7 into whales tail opened up in Breck today. Great creamy snow off the cornice then a bit variable down lower. Super chill today though, stood on top of peak 8 alone which I didn't think I'd ever see again these days haha

    I was just down at bent gate trying on/ fitting this class of boot. Iíve had good experiences working with those guys a couple times now . No shop like that up here in Fort Collins. Tried F1, skorpius, backland and tlt. Their current stock is somewhat limited size wise, but you can check online and see if yours are in. Make an appointment online for fitting as well.

    I ended up in the skorpius. Iím stoked to get out on it.

    The Ski Area that shall not be named has a new live pano cam at the base that actually shows the lift line at Pali and the parking lot. Kind of a nice way to tell how busy it is before you head up or check weather conditions. Or just watch people throwing the ball for their dogs. Whatever you are into.

    Holy shit!

    Thought maybe do a weekend in Steamboat like we do most years. Think again. NO lodging in Steamboat on any of the weekends that I checked for less than $500/night once you pile on the taxes, cleaning fees, service charges, etc!! Fuck that.

    Everyone is a millionaire now apparently.

    LOL.

    Yeah, we got a late invite to Winter Wondergrass, look for a condo or hotel to rent, no luck. $3k for 3 nights. Fuck that shit, I don't even like that music.

    Way cheaper to stay at home and pour one out while listening to WSP bootlegs.

    That'll never happen in my house. It'd be more like bourbon and Slayer.

    I go along with the jam band and bluegrass thing sometimes because if I didn't I'd have no friends but that music generally makes me wanna stomp on a banjo. Probably the biggest thing I miss about living in a city is the music scene that doesn't revolve around jam/grass.

    As far as the weather, yesterday was pretty damn nice sliding in the woods with the dog. Maybe I'll write a banjo song about it. Fuck!

    All the weekend events plus Ikon killed the affordability of SS on weekends if you're not piling 6 or more to a hotel room. That and they converted not one but 2 of the affordable hotels to 'workforce housing'. If only Rabbit Ears motel was bigger, still the best deal going. Kremtucky Motel 6 is cheeeeep tho, comes with free bedbugs.

    There's a huuuge mound of snow taking up sprinter parking at my place unfortunately.

    I've got a guest bedroom for one if you don't mind being in my gear room and a dog that can't control his licker. 4wd and decent snows absolutely required for the driveway.

    I just read bout the STR new license moratorium and add it to that ^^ about the two hotels and makes some sense. Hundreds of beds off the market.

    PPS

    I could have written that except for the part about my friends liking that shit or me going along with it. Anyone remember Slades Underground? We used to have punk and metal bands frequently. Ski towns are so soft these days.

    The Steamboat lodging prices escalated quickly. My wife and I have been staying at the Steamboat Hotel a few times a year for a decade for $100 or sometimes less. Luckily I've got a couple hook ups but shit is outta hand.

    Good to see Eskimo getting some attention. I thought it was too far south for most maggots.

    I grew up in the chatfield area so was pretty quick to just hop on 470 or county line and head there. Plus they were one of the first shops in the area to carry a whole lot of Armada stuff which I was stoked on at the time.

    There used to be an Eskimo at belleview and Broadway where I lived for several years, gave them quite a bit of biz. Not sure if they always had two shops or just moved or what.

    I think they closed the Denver store.

    I used to go to Colorado Ski and Golf. But after they became Epic they couldnít even mount a pair of skis. The Epic shop guys actually recommend Eskimo, and itís been my go to shop ever since.
