    Or they could just put a couple of thin cover signs and open it. Loveland patrol puts up and takes down more rope every season than every other ski area in colorado combined.

    I am sad/disappointed nothing has changed. Plenty of other places to ski - maybe come back over there in April.

    It's been hella better to ski than sbt ice rink with this low tide. I actually can't believe some of the steeps are open now the way things look, blame Ken for skiing it all off . I'm still happy to support these guys this year. I feel like a smaller resort has a right to be a little more conservative, esp during this pandemic, liabilities or whatnot. Imagine the hit their F&B department is taking, aside from 4-paks it's probably maybe their biggest income generator. I'll still give them the benefit of the doubt, as frustrating as it can be. The road is partially in going up to top of ridge, 4, and 8, much more than what I saw last week. And lots of ski cutting over that way. So, they are working on it.

    I'm super glad for the liftie that was working Ptarm on Tuesday, he's not fucking around with folks ignoring the mask rule. He literally stopped the lift twice while I was cued up, specifically so he could turn around, point and yell at these ass hats that had no face covering. He was pissed and defending his job security, professional yet very firm. Good for him.

    I’d much rather continue to support Loveland than bitch about Epic or Ikon while still giving them money.

    All that is open is skiing well, but it would be nice to disperse the lines a bit with another lift turning.

    About the chair one steeps, as I'm sure you know, that north aspect turns to sugar as they let it sit through the early season storms. We've had this convo over the years and I will always have my opinion that the base would be nice and deep (and avy safe) if they just let people ski it. It's the culture there, nothing to do with money or whatnot, imo.

    No matter, I'm in Leadville now and realizing that Monarch is not that much further to drive. And I'm having a lot of fun at Copper. I did go Karen on some people coming off the bus without masks, I called them vectors, hahaha omg. I hate being stuck on that bus, trying to figure out how to walk to the superbee.

    Happy for you! Sometimes I really miss that place and all the surrounding slack. I'll come over in the the springtime for sure.

    I think they’ve been clearing a path from Alpine Lot to Super Bee...

    They are building a bunch of condos and a fancy hotel at the base of A in the next few years. Kinda bummed about that. Always parked for free and hopped right on the mountain there. It was kinda the little secret stash for a long time. Ride the power lines all the way back to the truck in the old days.
