    Right on, Skifast. I have been having fun in these less than ideal conditions, too. I just keep thinking, "it's better than Whiteface." Never mind that I have 12 core shots in my new 105's. Oh well.
    Chocolate? This is doodoo, BABY!

    I saw you slay the bumps on those 105s. Pure nastiness

    My personal favorite is when it rains for two days in a row in Denver and people get all depressed.

    Yes people who are Colorado natives have little idea how spoiled they are weather-wise and for some reason are offended when you let them know their "colorful" state is really a brown desert (at least around denver).

    "Colorado" actually means "Red." It's in reference to the sandstone cliffs, like in RED ROCKS.

    Yes, we are spoiled here....you too will someday not want to go out unless its good, which like most on here drives you into the BC.

    A bad day skiing is better than a good day working. It may not be nipple deep, but if I am sliding on snow, I'm having fun.

    Actually, our state was name after the Colorado river.

    I actually remember this from 8th grade social studies. The state may have been named after the Colorado River, but the word Colorado means "ruddy" or "red."

    ive been a copper a few times myself
    theres a ton open and if you look around you can find some nice soft snow.
    Its been thankgiving conditions since opening day and Ive been super happy.

    Anyway, the old adage, "theres no such thing as bad snow, just annoying gapers who cant ski," seems to apply here.


    dside, 12 coreshots on the 105s?!
    damn man, you dont have any rock skis?
    well I guess you do now

    yep I am skiing Pa for couple days before coming out west again to remind myself how good I have it.

    the poconos suck even worse than this side of the state though we actually get lake effect.

    visibilty in Breck is about 3 feet. I'll let it pile up a little more before heading up.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.
