    just got back. sunny, but cold as shit. not too windy, but when i hit the top of 2 it was -8. i was lapping 1->6->midload, and went in every 60-70 mins.

    the snow in bennett's bowl and the south chutes was not bad at all. never saw chair 9 running, and i did not make it over to 8.

    for as cold as it has been, the snow is still pretty soft. my bluehouses do not like groomers, but plowed thru the crud really well.

    i'll be up solo early tomorrow. probably bringing the scotty bobs.

    i'll look for you fools in the lodge early.

    You guys are dedicated fo' sho'.
    Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all.

    No kidding you lazy asses. It was cold, but I wore 3 layers and was fine except for the toes on a few laps.

    chair 8 -> Plunge into In the Mood... was good! The praxis were handling the wind buff / pow stashes so well.

    Ran into SafetySquad and his non-magg friends. Good company always makes cold misery much more tolerable.

    Chair 4 trees were also still in good shape via Sunburst / west ropes.

    ... sidenote - on the way back around 1pm I saw some assClown trying to PUSH his truck outta the middle of 70, with his old lady at the wheel. At least a half mile of dead stopped traffic behind him. "sure, them bald-ass-tires will make it over the pass."

    Vail wasn't too bad today. Got up to around 14 or so. I'll be looking to escape the weekend/holiday crowd at Breck tomorrow so I'd be up for Loveland even if it is butt cold.

    Staying in Breck without a car though how would I get there? I can take the summit stage to ABasin. Is there a shuttle that goes between them, or would I need to hitch a ride?

    was it much windier over on 8 than 4 ?

    and yes, you will need to hitch. bring a beacon, hitch to the top & then ski down.

    8 was sweet today. Too bad it was so fucking cold.
    Some stuff off 1 was not bad at all, though.

    Yep, can't complain about the snow under Chair 1 today. Hopefully they'll get some more the next two days.

    Good skiing with you today, by the way.

    no real traffic in the mornings but there have been allot of retards who feel it necessary to do 45 in the left lane for no apparent reason.

    Yep, Loveland was fun today. Ocho was good, but as others have stated, damn cold. I think we did 4 or 5 runs before we had to hit the hot chocolate and then chair 1. They haven't opened the Ridge for a few days, but when they do, there should be some good wind loaded pow.

    Ms. Telechuck and I are going to be up again tomorrow.

    As for traffic, I left Boulder at 6 and hit none, but 93 was jacked, maybe the worse visibility (or lack thereof) that I have ever seen. No traffic on the way home, leaving Loveland at 2.

    The gapers are out in full effect, there are even lines, yep lines at Loveland (2 to 3 minutes only, but damn, lines It seems that the gapers like to knock over skis in the rack as well. Oh well, at least Loveland is making some money.

    Hope to see some of you up there tomorrow.

    I figured traffic patterns would be lightish with the odd stacking of the holidays.

    I am headed west to Vail Pass tomorrow for a tour and returning to Denver tomorrow night.

    I imagine a total shit show on I-70.

    It was getting bombed today, but hopefully there will be something left, i hope headwall gets a little more filled, make few new hits possible, and cover up a few rocky landings

    Actually TC, I think your skis got blown over by the wind- as I was leaving there were a bunch that went down. I'm pretty sure your yellow Gotamas were victim.

    Rontele- I left this morning at 9:45 from Denver and there was no traffic. Left Loveland after a few hours (around 2:00) and there was nothing on the way back either. That being said, tomorrow should be fun with the snow and wind.

    missed you guys again. we must be taking different laps on the ocho. i was over there from 10:30-12 or so. took a couple laps with one of the patrollers off awesome thru the rope gap. there's some good lines way over there right now.

    they have got to do something about chair 2, i like taking bennetts -> fire cut laps, but i did not ride one chair that didn't stop less than 3 times from mid load. started hitting the poma instead to get into the south chutes.

    we are missing out tomorrow. dim sum and shopping instead. i'll be there on new years.
