I see lots of good small tweaks for the better that make me hopeful
    What do i know, I'm just one of those people whose been packing the steeps for the last few seasons.

    There will never be enough bootlicking to satisfy the “locals”.

    Damn straight, I fully intend to continue complaining about the bootlicking after I move to the four corners.

    I know it’s not open yet, but are they still doing uphill access passes? Didn’t see the usual sign-up on the website. Can you just go without one now (once open)?

    Uphill access will operate the same as years past (e.g. you need a free pass) as far as I understand it.

    In previous years you could sign up for the passes in advance of access opening. Seems like this year they’re waiting for it to open to issue passes.

    Last weekend I was told they'll allow uphill access once Ptarmigan lift is open. And you'll have to watch the safety video and fill out the paperwork on line, as they didn't want a bunch of people in the ski patrol building during these scary Covid times.

    They've updated the uphill access page since I posted the link on Dec. 9. The biggest change is that they're charging $50 if you don't have a season pass.

    Bombed patrol bowl recently...at least the side of it that had snow. Got a nice slide.

    Side stepping Chets this past weekend and it feels good where theres snow. But there are lots of seriously thin areas between the good ones.

    I would recommend skiing Loveland tomorrow morning. Lots of rope was put out today on the steeps. Still bring your rock skis.

    What's up mags? I'm a Tahoe dude in Colorado for the holidays and trying to ski a bit. Berthoud pass and winter park the last two days and was good. Nice snow you got here. I'm in an adventure van and drove to hopefully tour on Loveland pass tomorrow but it's closed at the ski area. Anybuddy know how the resort is about camping in their lot? Is there any chance the pass opens in the morning or should I just plan to ski Trelease trees?

    If you sign up for the Bootlicker Brigade, they'll let you crash in your Adventure Van.

    There's another van in the lot so I assume you mean when the plow guys force us to demolition derby each other.

    I might actually pay to watch that -- give us a heads-up if it's going down.

    Trelease gets some massive wind loading. What were the speeds up there today?

    Wind? What wind? Just a little breeze (for Colorado)

    Thanks for all the help and humor! Definitely why I am part of the TGR massive

    Super deep, super surfy today. Fast Pow.

    Glad I beat the highway shutdowns (EPIC). Was still hammering and blowing snow when I left around 11:30am. South Chutes opened and were very good in the right places (still thin in the wind ripped areas), and they were digging out Chair 4 so I would not be surprised if they open that tomorrow.
    You should have been here yesterday!
