Not sure if it devolved after that but we took off a little after 3. Really fun ski day - plenty of stupid costumes and shenanigans on the hill and at merry go round but no covid mobs so it was pretty perfect

    I thought I was gonna burst into flames while hiking the bowl on Saturday, so hot with no clouds and no wind. Seems like our temps are going to be more seasonal this week with highs in the 50s which is ok with me.

    I'm looking good for Friday at 11am right now, work stuff tends to find its way onto my calendar throughout the week but I'd love to meet you guys so I'll definitely stop by if at all possible.

    I would love to meet up with some of the local mags on Friday at 11am...deck at 1A.

    I skipped skiing this weekend, but will probably get the kids out Saturday...wife is meeting her gang on Sunday. Which makes some laps on Friday perfect. We definitely need this coming 10 day forecast of freezing temps over night and below 55 during the day in town. I have kind of switched over to fishing and Saturday the Fork below Basalt was already getting colored up and a good bit higher then it was Friday. Hopefully we can have a mild April/May and a nice slow runoff...for the sake of summer and our forest!

    "Aspen Police, Pitkin County see spike in DUI arrests" - https://www.aspendailynews.com/news/...0d6020792.html

    Of the eight DUI arrests ó the number reported across Aspen Police and the Pitkin County Sheriffís Office from Friday to Sunday ó two were associated with Aspen Highlandsí closing day, Linn said.
    Linn, who was in uniform at Highlands on Sunday, wasnít impressed by the general conduct.

    ďI can tell you that what I saw there did not seem like COVID was on anybodyís mind,Ē he said. ďAlthough the crowd size was a lot smaller than previous yearsí Highlands closing parties, the behavior looked pretty much like it did in any other year.Ē

    Unfortunately not too surprised by the DUIs, people were boozing pretty hard while skiing and without a place to congregate after the lifts closed and limited bus service I think a lot of people just drove elsewhere to keep it going

    As far as covid concern goes from what I saw if cops had been there on st paddys day they would've been considerably more appalled - Highlands closer looked organized and sparse compared to the st paddys superspreader. Not that any of it is okay but I don't think the behavior was that different from what I've seen the rest of the season, this just got more attention. But I didn't stick around after the lifts closed so who knows maybe it devolved a lot

    get here before the snow is gone, unless you are here for fishing and golf.

    So I think I am gonna have to miss the Friday get together. Would love to find a time for lunch laps with some mags before the lifts close or a late afternoon and some beers.

    I am now scheduled in the Friday J&J vax group just before 11 with the wife. We had the VID, so probably shouldn't come and rip right after the shot. We signed right on at 10 worried it would fill up immediately...it felt like buying concert tickets back in the day.

    Anyhow, looks like there is still availability.

    I went to dinner at a friends place in Meadowood at 6 and there seemed to still be a police presence about.

    Aspen and from what I hear Snowmass, has been dead.

    Itís been as warm as Iíve ever seen and the snows going fast. Since we havenít had a mini and we have a bunch of mags in town, Iím proposing Friday 4/9 at 11:00. We can meet at the Shadow Mountain deck, just across from 1A.
    Be fun to check in and say Hey! on Friday.

    Whatís skiing better in the heat, Aspen or Snowmass?

    Kind of a loaded question, but snowmass is generally higher.

    Open, Ajax till the 18th, Snowmass till the 25th.

    But the heat is on and the snowpack is cooking fast.

    Aspenís steeper East/West facing slopes soften earlier, but the window of good skiing is shorter.

    Snowmass is higher and mostly north facing.
    It takes longer to soften, but the window a bit longer.

    Iím usually done skiing Aspen by 2:30. I skied Snowmass till 4 yesterday. Today was firm.

    Iíll probably hit 1A 10:30ish tomorrow and Snowmass around noon on Thursday.

    At the tent? show up early, no reason to not go take a lap or two.

    Well...except jobs. Will need to get a couple hours of work done before in case we are both stuck in bed the whole afternoon.

    Besides...how is the skiing currently first thing in the morning? We have not gotten any snow since that crazy warm up

    Most reservations show up early and the tent is empty in the afternoon.

    Weíll probably be lapping thru 1A every 30 minutes or so. Just sit on the deck and drink my beer.
    Weíll probably do lunch 12:30-1:00ish and then head back out.

    I'm going to try to swing by, depending on my work schedule. Would be fun to meet a few folks.

    I've only skied two days on Ajax this season where I didn't start on 1A. It's going to be sad to see that side of the mountain change. A slow double to start the day really sets the mood.

    When Bell is spinning (and the snow is decent) I ski it and FIS exclusively. Back of Bell to Gents laps alternating with Face to FIS to the Dumps/Silver Queen and back to Bell Chair. That's a day well spent in my book.

    Don't forget about Sunlight, it's there for all of your excruciatingly slow fixed grip double riding needs. Plus bonus center pole, inattentive lifties, and angle iron lift towers for the full ambiance.

    You guys have fun with the mini summit today. How about a weekend meetup next time for us working stiffs?
