    I wonder hows the weather looking over there in other words, how good is it going to be when they do open? I saw Keystone was super yesterday.

    Tommorow is Saturday, so that will be an epic shitshow, (heh), and it's supposed to snow next week.

    Shocking. Sounds like I should target the beavers.

    Sounds like they’re gathering a massive amount of explosives for the widow maker and professor. Should be an impressive boom and slide if it goes.

    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I was there the day they opened after the '03 blizzard. Got to the lot early, and then they closed 6 and told everyone to hang in the lodge or out on the deck while CDOT bombed the Professor. Three bombs and no slide. I was hoping for one, then about 50 people would have had the place to themselves for a while.
    There are times in history when it's slid all the way to the beach.

    And they are right to be worried - check out the "possible" runout of the Prof:

    Agreed. I’m sure they’re hoping it goes but not to the historic level as some of the slides seen this week.

    Pretty bummed yesterday to have to go to Keystone for the consolation prize.

    Maybe Abasin can help CDOT pay for some Gazex units for up on the Widowmaker and Professor to prevent this issue in the future.

    They bombed the shit out of the Professor on Monday too. It got skied a few times too. Don't know what they're gonna do this time, but I'd love to watch.

    Any word on when they will open back up? Please say Monday and not this weekend or it will be a total fucking disaster. Over/under of 100 cars towed off 6.

    I think it’s because you said you’re going to the “beavers”. The beavers is a zone within Abasin Beaver Creek is the resort. Maybe? Ionno
