Default Wow, A-Basin sucked hard today

After the last month or so of riding at Loveland, I had been spoiled by the good snow and low crowds. Heading back to a Colorado Pass resort today was like a swift kick in the balls. Icy hardpack, crowds, lift lines, gapers, BLAH!

I'm officially OVER Summit County and the rest of the CO Pass resorts. You can catch me at Echo and Loveland next year!

Count yourself lucky dude, the conditions you've mentioned sum up my mountain when it's open in the dead of winter.

Yeah, I thought it was going to be good today, but as soon as I got there and saw it was overcast I knew I was fucked. I made two runs and the went fishing.

I made 7 or 8 park laps and said fuck it, I spent 6 hours in the sun lapping the park yesterday. Ready for Woodward to do summer camp so I can go hit the air bag and try double chucks.

Yeah, I took two park laps and hung it up. I'm not much of a jibber and definitely prefer jumps, so they're park setup right now isn't doing much for me right now. They have lots of jibs setup, but their little jump line is weak as hell. Plus, they were having a rail jam today, so most of their jibs were a clusterfuck anyway.
