    I think it's not a bright enough yellow. Needs to fluoresce a little.

    2020/21 Aspen/Roaring Fork Thread

    Face was still skiing really well today and nobody was skiing it. Classic early season Aspen,w/o bumps.

    Walshes is cracking first thing tomorrow.
    My normal crew is working.
    Iím coming up 1A and then then taking a spin through the beacon basin. So Iíll be 15-20 behind the Gondi crew. Iíll probably only ride the couch.

    Some of you old timers, bring your gear and weíll take a lap through the side country.

    White jacket, black helmet & pants, red backpack.

    Wish I read this last night... I saw and heard about a lot of activity during control.. Was hoping they'd drop something yesterday afternoon so went up for a few laps.

    Face and international were both very good, back was $$

    Hyrups/Kristiís, Glade3, SL Hill, to walk on Gondiís early. Never a line on chairs.

    Highlands is the best thing, to ever happen to Ajax.

    I got out for a couple laps on Highlands opening day. To get down to DT you had to hike up to the mushroom entrance. I was in the first group down and ducked in and out of the woods. First run was great, but I am sure subsequent was scraped to hell.

    Crowds were not bad today at Buttermilk (12/19). Much less then last year at this time. It skied pretty darn well and my 5 yo (and wife) did Klaus Way/Racers Edge for their first black runs ever. I am not gonna discount it being Buttermilk and groomed...it was still badass to watch their excitement and he went top to bottom with only one stop after hitting a stick and falling.

    Watching people learn and be excited is badass. Buttermilk also has some really damn good views.

    Nice work! Buttermilk is the best for kids. My 4 yo had a blast all over the mountain today.

    G-4 was great today, but probably wonít be many spots of fresh left in a day or so. Bootpack is in pretty good shape. It was windy as fuck, but then the sun came up and everything was calm in the bowl.

    They had a big crew out packing the middle of the bowl. Looked like a freshly plowed field. There were a couple slides. That will make some of the spots bumpy for a little.

    Thoroughly enjoyable day at Ajax today. Even stumbled upon a couple of rope drops. I sure didn't go into the day expecting to make any turns where ya get that floatin' feelin.' That was a pleasant surprise.
    I remember a bottomless freedom...

    Nice, I was on top at 11 for a morning lap. Skied G6/5 and then the rib down G2. Good turns and no sharks, but the rest of the mountain looked rough. Ajax will play until we get more snow

    The Dumps opened this afternoon.
    Kind of chunky, but good pillows here and there.

    I got bit by one shark, but luckily was in the bottom on Middle Fork. I got a bit greedy trying to squeeze fresh turns and a tree grabbed me. Was a fun tumble followed by the always painful pole fetch up hill. Luckily it wasn't any deeper, because nothing was packed.

    I was bopping down that last steep section between 4 and 5 and JUST missed the tip of a big rock that would sent me flying. I felt lucky after that and let well enough alone with one lap....haha Funny when you fly past something and just see it out of the bottom of your eye and instinctively miss it...but partially out of just pure luck.

    Feels like that whole side of Highlands is in that spot where if you are the first couple people through, it is ok, but not going to want to ski it again until we get more snow. Personally...I would stay away for now.

    Sounds like patrol saved a 9 year olds life yesterday when he fell 40 feet off a lift. Got a pad under him and all is well? I saw it in my Google news feed as it is some famous lady's kid. No details were provided...glad he is ok, but dad of course blamed the lifty...
