    6.5 hours Boulder to Avon and we left at 2. I especially liked the trucker putting her chains on in literally the middle of the highway where she got stuck (traffic went around on both sides) and the gas truck doing a lateral move on the eastbound approach to the tunnel. Also, did anyone else see that snowboarder in all his gear, carrying his board and walking East in the westbound breakdown lane around 6pm? Was he planning to ride back to Denver? It was bad enough that I wouldnít blame him...

    Can this be a continental east side mantra from over the hills? Please!

    Wow. We left Boulder at 415, rolled into WP at 645. Not bad considering. Buddy did same drive in 90 minutes leaving at 630.

    Stop telling people that it is possible to get to Winter Park.

    If anyone asks, Berthoud Pass has no guard rails and it has a population explosion of Siberian tigers that regularly eat stranded motorists.

    If you were stuck on I70 yesterday, you need to get your head checked. Everyone saw this shit coming.

    Itís impossible to get to Winter Park. I particularly liked the semi in the middle of the first switchback up that stopped without pulling over to put chains on.

    It took 6 hours for thousands of people to go 70 miles, to ski 3Ē of new snow. Epikonic!

    Late shift at WP or Eldora (no tunnel) have dinner or movie if there's traffic. Random hotels/friends. Occasionally I'll call them in sick to school. They have 12 days so far, tomorrow will be 13, and we have managed to avoid traffic for the most part.

    Also, dad stops in the trees a lot. So I dont care as long as they are having fun.
    the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs

    Just did this today. Got slopeside parking at Eldora at noon, skied with my kid till 4. Having coffee at Salto. Wish there were more smaller mountain off I70 because half (or more) of the traffic are beginners who really donít need to be going to the big mountains.

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    I was fully ready to do battle today after what the roads looked like last night. I left my place at 5:15 am since I was sketched out by what traffic looked like last night and figured many bailed and decided to come this am.

    I was making good time, traffic was fine so I stopped at Carlís JR to get some breakfast food. I was too early and they were not open. Gah!

    Make it to the Utah Junction lot at 6:45 and read a book. I was on the Challenger chair at 8:27. I hardly waited in line. Skied my ass of until 12:45. Pulled out of the lot at 12:55 and was home at 2:18. I hardly waited in line today, a holiday weekend with a bit of new snow. I didnít mess with Pano, super gauge or the WP side once. Eagle Wind got a line, but I just went the back way and made pairs triples and waited about four chairs to join a group.

    I had a fantastic day. However, my wife forgot to get the steak out of the freezer and we have company coming. I have that to deal with.

    I suppose if you left the front range ďearlyĒ at 6:15 am and had to always ride a lift all day with your three intermediate buddies and definitely had to have the Pano goods and then because you stood in lines a ton of the time, which made you not leave till 3:15 today and now you are stuck in whatís relatively moderate traffic you might not think today was not too awesome. HOWEVER, if you were on your game and snapped a pic or two and posted it to Social media and snagged 16 likes from your friends and family from not Colorado you just might be feeling good about yourself and it was all worth it.

    wolfelot its just further evidence of how i do not understand the crowds one bit anymore. copper was over 16,000 people yesterday and i heard lift lines weren't even that bad and that was from friends riding intermediate trails. I have been there on like 12,000 people days when lift lines have seemed unbearable. then there are the fresh snow days where traffic is just slammed around silverthorne all afternoon, like why aren't you on the hill? i don't understand what people do around here! I'm rambling but this shit just makes no sense.

    How does one figure out or hear of estimates of how many people are on the mtn on any given day. Do employees know and it filters out?

    Someone asked how parents do it with small kids and the roads. Itís not easy and you really need to think ahead. Staying up here is much better. I wasnít scorned yesterday and felt up to it so I brought my 4-year-old daughter to WP. I got her up an hour early and she is currently in great spirits. Iím sitting in my car by the Cabriolet now and will be gone by noon. Left my house at 6:01 and made it in 1:35. My guess of Sundayís being a bit better as far as departure times just barely panned out. 10 min later and I bet Iíd be regretting this. Hopefully a pre-12:00 return will be fine.

    PM me if you have small kids and are skiing at WP today.Click image for larger version.

    Pretty much. Heard today is supposed to be 16K at Copper, biggest ever by 1K. I'm guessing that the lifelines are mitigated by the two new lifts installed last year, plus the Super B. I mean, what other resort has 3 high speed 6 packs from the base? If you have big lift lines with that setup, the hill has gotta be crazy. Copper is a good mountain though, really spreads skiers out.

    ^^^ yes
    everyone thinks they have it figured out breck is a zoo so you goto copper or wp

    You leave friday afternoon instead of Saturday morning

    Eldora used to be a peaceful place to ski on the weekends 20 years ago. ..........

    Problem is everyone is doing the same thing or thinks they have it figured out

    the good thing is it's not about skiing anymore, its about going to the mountains hanging out posing and pretending to ski but mostly buying expesive shitty food and drinks
