    My bet is limited skiing off 3 with downloading. Employees asked not to ski until Monday.

    They did look pretty hard at what could be done with Golden Horn/ Thunderbowl but that would redefine Ribbon of Death.

    Picture a strip of snow, two cats wide. Now picture it down T Bowl.
    Yeah, nice!

    As to Snowmass, haven't heard much.

    Aspen locals (20 years in the valley minimum please I see a jacket for sale by a company called Aether and don't see much info on them except that they are sold mainly in some shops in Aspen. It looks like a really well made jacket so wondering if anybody has any experience with them?

    Iíve been in the store. Itís a high end lifestyle brand, thatís big with the affluent MIFS, that are pervasive in this town.
    They have some nice stuff, but itís not really my jam.

    Been here 31 years. It is trim fit, like for euros. Not bad. Wouldn't pay those prices for the product. Much better gear on the market.

    Just realized my three days in Aspen overlap with the X Games. How busy is it during the games and what can I expect? Staying on the east side of Aspen.

    The ski hills are suprisingly non-crowded. Everything else is a clusterfuck. Avoid the bus system that weekend if possible.

    Figured. Was planning on doing 3 days, one day at each except for Buttermilk. Isn't the bus the only way to get to the x games venue? Is it worth it to even go if the buses are a cluster?

    I can not imagine that they will allow for crowds, especially on buses. My guess is that they will either limit or close spectators.

    Hopefully you guys know i was joking about the minimum valley time. I like trim fit (at least i did before the Covid 15) and the jacket is < $200 and basically brand new. I would never pay retail cost for this, hoping it is a good deal for the price i will pay. Thanks for the input.

    There are a few events worth seeing live at the XGames, but most are way better on TV. Superpipe being one of them, you can see the whole thing from where you are standing and you get to see how massive the 'smaller' 15' airs are.

    XGames originally was really cool to go to, because you could get so close.
    Now, unless youíve got credentials, itís much better on TV.


    Slopes are empty.

    Cool aiming for watching the Men's Snowboard Superpipe then. Its really just a novelty seeing as its a surprise that I happen to be there during the games.

    FYI itís also Gay Ski Week. Town will be packed.

    On a weather note, pretty awesome to get two one inch storms that turn into 6Ē+ in the same week. Hopefully last nightís storm can help get a bit more open.

    Snow report doesnít really line up with the snow cams this morning. Last night there was zero on the shelves.

    Yay!

    Anyone have any thrashed touring skis that I can buy for cheap? Just need something for volunteer bootpacking days on Highlands. Bases can be coreshot to hell and back. Pin tech bindings preferable but I'll happily take frame bindings so I can stop tearing up my nice skis. Just need something to last the rest of the month. 314mm BSL.
