    It was very good according to several of my friends who knew I was on my way back from Thanksgiving with the in laws in Denver and made sure to text me and rub it in. Excited to get out tomorrow to police up the leftovers.

    Krystiís is as good as it gets.

    Theyíve cleared all equipment out of 1A. We should be almost 100%[less gated terrain], this week.

    Have they opened 1A side at all? I got rope on the dumps last year, that may be one of my best laps on Ajax ever.
    3:30 and last bucket and they said go take the traverse and have at it.

    Looks like some people got in the Dumps today. I looked up at Slalom/Corkscrew at 3:45 and didn't see anything beyond some poachers tracks.

    2019/20 Aspen/Roaring Fork Thread

    Iíve got a few vouchers for $59 tix thru 12/20 available for any mags heading this way. PM if you want one.
    Pretty sure other guys posting on this thread here have em too.

    As for conditions:
    One of the best early seasons I can remember and Iíve been having a blast out there.
    Got rope drop back of bell early last week, first run in walshs last week was one of the best all time for me, black mamba was really fun this weekend and I got in the dumps fairly early yesterday too.
    Iím too lazy to bootpack but hoping for powder posse at highlands later this week.

    Just bought a fri->Mon ticket to ski Aspen/Aspen/A.Basin. Is this a stupid idea?

    No, it will be good. Monday might be the softest day.

    I'm gonna check out Marble this weekend with low expectations. Zero possibility of getting a run in but I'll post up what I see.

    Folks have been skiing Marble already. I hear it's good in the bowl, interesting getting out. Report back what you find!

    Do a search on field reports for the Aspen zone. There has been, expectedly, a ton of activity in that area.

    Not bad, not bad. Highlands opening Sat will be busy, but Aspen Mountain will get better and better.

    I also have two vouchers left, that probably won't get used. I wish they would make them good for late season as well. I understand not during the meat of the season, but would be nice for like April.

    Lunch laps today on Aspen were very good. Visibility sucked, but it definitely felt like more then 4" of new snow. Amazing the shape the mountain is already in. I will be at Buttermilk this weekend with the toddler, but I am off work Monday and will be at Highlands all day. Looks like we have some nice snow forecast for Sunday evening and Monday am.

    Hope it keeps up! I only get a handful of weekdays off during the season and this looks to be a good one.

    Be careful out there. I extracated a guy who hit a massive rock in Black Mamba, pain level was on an 8. Ended up with 4 broken ribs, with multiple fractures per rib. Heís in hospital and will probably be there for next couple days. Itís still early season.

    I saw that guy in the toboggan on Lud's when I was coming out of Kristi, there were so many patrollers at the scene I thought it was a training exercise or something.

    This is a weird question: I'm rolling in to town feeling like the black death. Is there a particular health system in Aspen (Ex: Seattle has swedish) dudes would recommend to help with not dying?

    Not too many options besides Aspen Medical Care during the day or the Hospital is great. AMC does walk ins on Saturday morning. Otherwise you have urgent care down in Basalt.

    skideeppow - Black Mamba open the first week of Dec??? Seems aggressive!

    We have more snow coming in. I'm prepping gear tonight to see if I can get out there. Worst case, I get a more accurate idea of things to come when I get out the following weekend. I got a bad quad now. Rotator cuff, wrist fracture, ACL, now this shit. It never ends, but I'm doing what I can out there.

    We still have a few weeks before things get remotely interesting. It'll be a good one I'm sure.

    Bondís memorial at Bonnies was really nice! Afterwards we had our own little memorial on Silver Queen, which is skiing magnificently.

    How was Highlands?

    Might head out there tomorrow, but itís looking like a late Gondi type of day.
