Agreed, we have enough cops of our own.

Speaking of Loveland. I went there today. I am seriously considering getting a pass there next season, depending on where the pass wars go. Needless to say I had a good time. I've forgotten how fun that place can be. Perfect for a guy who generally prefers the backcountry over area riding.

Anyone hit Breck today? Fucking 14 inches up top it was insane. Seriously only had a handful of days there with snow like that but fucking all time.

Also so many second home owners that claim local status up here that think they're ski bums. Yeah so you telecommute and ride 3 days a week woo hoo. Guess what you're still not a ski bum.

Been toying with the idea of finally writing a book about being a ski bum, thinking now is the time to go for it. Need to sit down with Charlie king of the ski bums and get some of his tales to put into this project. Anyone got any thoughts on that idea?

Loveland is SWEET They don't groom for shit and even when they do it's not a very quality job. Lift 8 and 9 are a blast!

I agree BA. Its been a long hard ride to be a snowboard bum the past few winters. Not an easy task.

A book would be fucking cool, kind of like an instruction manual for those that don't want to be drones and can live off a pack of ramen and a cheeseburger you trade a bud for every day

Nice to hear about Breck! I'm planning on heading up there on Monday.

Yeah killclimbz, I love me some Loveland! I have the Colorado Pass this year, so I haven't made it up. I may also buy a Loveland pass next year. Love that place!

We haven't been the best of buds on here and hopefully I didn't trash too many of your runs yesterday, but I had a blast at Breckenridge yesterday. 11" again last night according to their website, so we'll be heading out there again today. Breckenridge is one BIG ass place.

I didn't because of the three day weekend, just went to Keystone since it was closer. Got a few nice tree runs with about mid thigh powder. Not too shabby for what I was expecting.

Probably be at breck or possibly loveland pass later today.

A-Basin was nice today. Not busy at all. Windy as hell at the top so I only went up there once. My son thought he'd be a hero today and tried to take a jump in the terrain park on Sundance. He slammed hard and sat out most of the day.

Breck was nice, but now I know why everyone talks about the crowds. A-Basin is still our favorite.

Tomorrow the potential for awesome should be real good, lot of traffic leaving town today. Depending on wind and cloud levels might be worth doing some hiking.

The snow up on lift 8 at loveland was unreal today. Definitely the best day of the season I've seen up there. I hope we get a few more of these storms really soon.
