    Isnít there a gate just uphill of Awesome? Agree though, this shouldnít impact backcountry skiing in Dry Creek.

    Yeah...there is. But it's hardly slack country was my point. You'd have to climb and then traverse a ridge to get to the terrain they're skiing.

    They moved the gate way downhill to the middle of the flats a couple years ago. Probably in preparation for this, to discourage people from touring back there.
    I will admit the gate is in a better spot now to access A-Tow, but nearly useless for accessing Dry Gulch.
    Last few times I've accessed Hagar from LL (which is the best way to access Hagar) I've just cut the rope since they don't have any gates in useful places anymore.

    Yeah.

    Hopefully they will allow skiing and skinning back there as well as cat skiing, like Copper used to on Tucker Mtn.

    Loveland was deserted yesterday for their opening. At the busiest, parking lot was less than half full and the lift was ski-on all day. Nice breath of fresh air from last years' cluster all season. Hope it stays that way and goes back to the low key, low crowd ski area it used to be.

    I'm not cool enough to work there. Just volunteer on the weekends. Probably spin a few laps on Friday after a small tour.

    Loveland's (& ABay's) WROD might get a little crowded this Thanksgiving if other areas don't have much open.

    They'll at least have 3 runs open with just one lift. The line might get longer but the skier density on the slopes will be OK.

    It's the legend JONG. Take a few bootlicking laps.

    needs much snow, but holding up. I think somebody took a lawnmower and edger out there to clean things up.

    Meant to post this a while ago but itís nice to see Loveland open a top to bottom ungroomed run without snowmaking before any other front range ski area. Hopefully this is a sign of more aggressive terrain opening policies this year.

    I've seen pip on skis more this season than any of the last 5 or 6 at least.

    That said, the opening is more to deal with the fact we actually had decent coverage than any policy changes that i'm aware of.

    There have been years with far better coverage than this year where they waited longer to get nix open. We will see after another storm or so if they get skiers on cats and busy. All jokes aside, they have been very diligent on packing the steeps this season as well. Often times they have waited for more snow to pack A-Bowl and Zoom, but they have been out on those early. I see lots of good small tweaks for the better that make me hopeful

    He has been wearing a helmet for the past few seasons! Loveland requires it for all staff now.
