THIS is also what Vail Resorts just bought.

I was at Afton last Wednesday with my four kids. With 10 inches of new snow and clear skies it was a great day. We got there early and stayed late. By far the best day I have had at any resort in the metro area.

My wife is having some knee issues so she spent the day in the main chalet. A group of architects came through and were discussing the plans to remodel the main chalet. The new owners are investing $10 million in Afton.

I hope the rain last weekend didn't wreck the snow out there. I would like to head out there at least one more time this year. Let us know how the conditions are after you go this weekend.
