Jones solution with sparks afterburner and g3 skins.
if you end up finding that slippage is a problem over the course of the season, keep in mind that the BD/Voile skins DO grip better than the g3/sparks - although heavier.

Sounds like a good time. Got any pics from today?

Couple of followup questions: What's Vail's uphill travel policy for early season? Run into any snowmaking equipment?

Nothing from anywhere interesting and deeper into the hike. I was too tired to care...... This is only like 1200' up from the base before cutting to midvail. Snow was deeper than expected. Trying to get in shape for season and this is another great way to do it...... Tele chick is up front, wife and another girlfriend ahead of me.

No issue, there was some on the main runs but they have never stopped anyone I know. They just cut off auto traffic with the 1' snow we had yesterday. Used to be able to drive to the base go chair 10 and park. They Just closed the gate last night.....

Some areas were really nice. Most were challenging. It was all fun to skin on. Breaking trail in the deeper parts was tough on the hips.....

I'll be doing Vail pass too. Lower elevation, needs a little more snow. Might be good by December with the way this season is setting up so far. Bert really is the spot. But VP is a pillow smashing good time.

I always wondered what it would be like to ride Vail before it opens. If you ever get a break from your work schedule, are planning on skinning up vail, and need someone to ride with, give me a holler. I can make it out most weekdays with one or two days notice.
