    Love to see this bumped again. If was smart I would know how to put more photos in.


    I am amazed that all the big resorts are charging over 200 for a day ticket. No of the resorts will ever come close the experience, pow, the terrain, and friends you will meet/make on your day of adventure.

    You couldn't be more correct when it is unguided. Silverton guided leaves a lot to be desired for me. Maybe its the freeride mentality in that I want to be "free" to ski where I want. I don't like being told to "stay between my track and that tree".

    and I wish they would open the damn billboard again. I know rope dee 4/dope chute is close, but skiing off the top from the billboard was such a cool experience.

    I think Telluride, right over the hill provides a much better experience than Silverton guided.

    I've had some really fun days going guided there. I never felt restricted really.

    I dunno, just look at that second photo posted by Buster above. There are either a lot of people who hate skiing untracked powder or their guides have told them to ski in a tight restricted area that required them to ski over the other tracks...

    Doesn't that east facing stuff get cooked? I have been skiing at around 12000' in the San Juans all week. This heat has definitely put a zipper crust on east facing.

    I don't mind.
    It's a different experience. But part of the request to stack tracks is to allow more people to get a few fresh turns. And skier compaction.

    I know lots of people who feel the same way about not wanting to be guided and constricted. I can respect that, no need for the cheepness.

    It's how it works there. I think the. people that work there are a kickass team

    Love T'ride too, but it's gotten too expensive .

    If by that you mean that I get to ignore the stacking requests, you'd be wrong.

    If anything, that's why I have great friends and respect here. Plus, I must not come off as just another self absorbed, entitled asshole.
    Odd huh?

    The skiing has been great, a little skiff of snow came in last night. Going for a little wander this afternoon.

    As hatch wrote above, it looks more like the notch between Pyramid and Grassy.

    Smart ones?

    Or do they just want deep pockets? That's what I was alluding to, especially given the opportunity zone reference in the email.

    I had some friends down there that did the race.

    I had to check that it wasn't 4/1 when I read the chairlift email. Very interesting!

    Nice, I hope they had a good time. This was my first year running the event.
    My apologies to anyone that was staying at The Avon Sat night. We were bumping until about 1.
