    Elkhound Odin, bummer, hope the wife improves.

    so, does Alpenglow at 9am and Noon work?

    I have digits for some of you, and will be able to get PMs at some points and locations during the day depending on service, but if anyone wants my number send me a PM.

    And if all else fails, look for us in the afternoon somewhere nearish the trees in the non-carpool part of the lower lot. Yell "change for a nickel" and have people look at you weird.

    Looks like a typical Eldora forecast, windy, mostly sunny but chance of snow, and did I mention windy?

    Windy at Eldora? Wha?

    I now need to be back in Boulder by 2pm but Iím in for the morning. Will pass by Justice Center at 7am. If anyone else has similar timing, shoot me a PM. Otherwise see you 9am at (bottom of?) Alpenglow?

    Iím in black jacket, blue helmet, blue DPS mounted tele.

    Bottom of Alpenglow (fuck meeting people at the top of lifts when avoidable, but especially at Eldora). And for the sake of avoiding any confusion, meet outside of the NW side maze, not on the beginner/nordic center side.

    Green jacket, black helmet, dark grey pants, on teles (NTN).

    Pointing out that you are on tele gear at Eldora is kind of like pointing out that you will be the one skiing the blue groomers at Vail: absolutely worthless as a differentiator. You can't throw a $37 powder skirt without hitting a tele skier at Eldora.

    I'll be the dude in alpine boots, non-adjustable poles, and without homemade granola. It'll be easy to find me.

    Heh.

    Scare tactics from Eldora, posted on Facebook tonight:

    Happy Thursday night, yíall! The next four days will be busy at Eldora. Consider the circumstances: no school on Friday, followed by a holiday weekend with terrific recent snow, and, very likely, I-70 snarls that will send Summit-bound traffic north to Eldora through Central City. Itís crucial, therefore, to plan accordingly: please CARPOOL with as many as is feasible for you and arrive by 8 (earlier on Sat/Sun) or after 12 for the afternoon shift. BETTER YET, grab the RTD NB bus from Boulder Transit Center. It runs every day, and weíll be giving away FREE tickets on both Saturday and Sunday. Find the schedule at RTD-Denver.com. We also offer FREE shuttles on Saturday and Sunday from the Boulder County Justice Center at 6th/Canyon (schedule: http://bit.ly/GettingToEldora). Bottom line: always employ the above recommendations on any weekend, no-school day, holiday, or fresh-pow day. Thanks in advance and have a great weekend, however and wherever you decide to recreate.

    I don't know if it will quite be that bad, but worth being aware of.

    Approved last night I think. Almost no public showed up at the hearing, I understand.

    That article is inaccurate based on what I've seen, it's $10 per car with just a solo driver on weekends (and pow days).

    I'll be there tomorrow. Red jacket, black helmet and sparkling brown eyes.

    Question - is this an adult only deal and should I ditch the kid or have him tag along (he will not be slowing anyone down)? Down care either way (but he might).

    I don't care if a kid is in attendance. There may be some weed smoking, but people are smart enough to be discreet. There may be some drinking, but that won't scar the kid. There may be some cussing, but I doubt you fucking care about that.

    mini mags encouraged, just be aware of them when around.

    edit: speaking of which, if mini mags want something other than a brat, bring some dogs, throw them on grill.

    But really, more telewankers at Eldora than Loveland? Difficult to believe, if true.
    The older I get, the faster I was.

    It's not true, not from what I have seen.

    Life getting in the way, I can't commit to going but I'd probably show on my tele sticks of I was! Damn I miss mountain life.
