    I've been trying to train one day a week by skinning around the lowlands of the Cascades. But, there's no substitute for training at CO altitudes! And I find it's the 2nd hike that's the toughest because my legs are shot by then!

    2022-23 Aspen/Roaring Fork Valley Conditions

    Long shot but anyone willing to loan a pair of skis for sun/mon to my brother as he thought itíd be a good idea to bring skis/bindings that werenít mounted (but what he thought was drilled for said bindings) and screw them in when he got here only to realize that the heels donít line up. Looking for mid to high 180s w a binding that would work w a 325bsl. Weíre staying in Snowmass Village but could drive within reasonable distance.

    Happy to compensate the lender.

    Iíve got my 189 Atris mounted for 298 with Axial 3 that could probably just stretch. Also 186 Volkl One with Griffons that could possibly make it. 180 Brahmas with Griffon demos. All those would be an aggressive rearward mount though with his BSL. Iím by Buttermilk.

    Also happy to share 50% demo coupons to 4 Mountain Sports via text

    Iím in Snowmass and have something that would fit him. But heís probably just better off having a shop mount his binders. PM me if you need some skis.

    Burgers and hats on the Shadow Mountain Deck tomorrow.

    2nd bowl hike for Mackenzie. Much improved all around compared to last year. Spent the rest of the day crushing Highlands bumps. Amazing day out there after the cold stretch weíve had.

    Nice job Mackenzie!

    Sorry I didnít see the ski request until now. I always have some Blizzard Cochise in I think 185 that have Dukes on them.

    The weather this weekend made me feel like the season is coming to close. Luckily we are still have almost 3 months and winter will resume this weekÖhopefully.

    Either wayÖgreat fun skiing in the nice weather. Highlands groomers were in basically perfect condition today.

    Family skiing while the 7yo did his first race. Racing doesnít seem like it will be his thing and they mixed the PreDevo kids in with the U8 Alpine groupÖhe was stoked on his 8th place finish.

    The vibe at the base in the sunshine with all the parents chilling and kids playing in the snow was really fun. Big thanks to all the volunteers that help put this stuff together for the kids!

    I think I may have skied down right past you guys when you were taking pics in that spot

    Ozone was super fun got two laps in on it. Second hike the wind was pretty wild, people were getting straight up knocked over by it

    Overnight says 5" on the Snowmass website but the Snowmass snowstake shows 10"? That's quite a lot of snow in just a few hours, or?

    The time lapse of the stake on open snow shows a super fast additional 4Ē this morning so either a thin heavy band hit Snowmass or someone shook the trees

    What are the options for lift passes once I burn up my 6 days of Ikon? Am I screwed? Take out a 2nd mortgage? Skin Buttermilk for turns? Thanks!

    Nice, were you on the 2021 Atris? She was happy on her hike and ski and stoked on the consistent windbuff most of the way down, but we kept it to one lap.

    Best option: skin up the the Merry Go Round at Highlands and then ski the top of the mountain (Loge, DT and Cloud 9) without scanners. You can skin Tiehack or Main, or skin Ajax early and ski the top of the mountain. We can probably round up some 50% off lift ticket coupons for you too

    Okay, I was looking at the Ikon website FAQ and wasn't seeing anything on what the discount amount was. I'm flying out late afternoon on the 18th, so if conditions are epic, then I would definitely want to ski, but if it's just a non-pow day, doing some cardio. I like the idea of skinning up Merry Go Round at Highlands though. Didn't know that was an option. Love this board for the Beta!
