The pizza and cheesesteaks are serious business too.
I'll hav e to give that a shot, like I said I won't be eating out much. I already planned on visiting the Dam brewery, drank quite a few of the extra pale couple years ago at A-Bay. I do want to take the tour of the brewery, and of course try out several of each flavor

You're gonna be shocked by the lack of snow. I shit you not, there was more snow in mid-June last year. Maybe late June. My last powder day was in June up on Berthoud last year. It sure looks like my last powder day this year will be sometime in February. February was solid, the rest of the season has sucked ass. It's gonna be warm though, so you should get to ride some decent spring conditions. If it ain't gonna snow, it might as well be spring turns.
Ah bummer bro, coulda been a good time, watch out in Fl. I hear they shoot people for the hell of it down there I don't mind spring slush as long as there is something to slide on. Lack of snow...hahaha..I was out riding jetski's 2 weekends ago

There were quite a few people boarding and skiing in shorts yesterday too.

I don't hang out in silverthorn ever so I don't know where to go there. If your woman is with you they have a decent outlet mall there and sales are on right now.... They may chill for that Easter week though with all the mexicans in the area.
No woman with me, but I dig outlet sales. I was packing last night, mostly t-shirt's a couple pairs of shorts, for outwear light shell jacket/pants, hoodies and some dry weave shirts.

I'm one of those people that burn once and then can spend hours and hours in the sun. During the summer I spend 10-15 hours a weekend on the water with out sunblock, guess I'll pack some anyway. I've got everything from SPF 10 to 50 (people always leave that crap on my boat )

I'm still excited to go even if conditions won't be great, I'm spending 3 days at A-Basin and 1 day at Loveland. I get back on a Thurs. night and I'm taking my boat out on Sat. So I will literally be going from slashing snow to cutting wakes this year
