    Ha! Thanks for clarifying fellas.

    My 6yo is jonesing to get out , but not sure itís the best idea to take him until more is open and it spreads out a bit. Some Jolly Jug rippers do sound great!

    Would like to get him on snow one way or another next week. Might burn a day at LL, all condition dependent.

    I've been checking the Eldora webcams regularly for weather conditions, etc., and, on the main mountain, I would expect only Windmill/International to be open on Friday. Until the last minor snowfall, everything there was mostly brown except for the bottom of International coming into the lift area.

    Surprisingly good. Better than what Winter Park had going on, yesterday.

    something along those lines should be their slogan:

    Eldora: surprisingly good!
    Eldora: better than you expect!
    Eldora: it's not windy all the time!

    It was windy. I didn't mention it because I thought that was a given. It was also snowing when I left.

    Wasn't their tagline "Friends don't let friends drive I-70" at one time? I remember stickers saying that.

    Anyway, I took the kid up for her first turns of the season and it was pretty iced over in one section. Back to shitty...

    Sad. RIP. It was really icy in that narrow section of Windmill, last week.

    Very sad. I skied there the afternoon before, and Windmill had a few slick spots but was overall OK. The worst stretch in the afternoon was on International, below the traverse. Note that it was quite warm on Monday, so conditions got a bit spring-like early in the afternoon, so that might have led to more frozen conditions Tuesday morning, even with grooming.

    yeah, I think it's Saturday this year, because reasons.

    I was up there for a few hours, today. It got slushy in the sunny spots but not so bad if you stayed in the shade. No crowd made it easy to just get a bunch of laps in.

    Was up on Saturday. Flight for Life in the morning, lots of sleds coming down.

    I may start bringing up some work, and kick it in West Wing after dropping my kid off. It was a ghost town in there.
