Loveland

I love that mountain, but their refusal to open more terrain season is getting extremely frustrating. Lack of snow hasn't kept other CO resorts from opening additional terrain and patrol has been lapping prime unopened terrain and openly about it. They're getting blown up on Facebook every time they post anything.

Like I said, I love that mountain but I think they're patrol crew needs a good douching.

I was there Thursday, Definitely thought they could have had more terrain open and lack of snow wasn't the problem. The steep stuff off chair 1 has some ways to go but a lot of everything else was finally looking like it had some decent coverage. I heard a lot of avy control work going on so I am expecting some more stuff (chair 9 maybe? ) opening up in the near future.

I think they're working on 4. 4 will definitely be the next lift open.

The butthurt on the Loveland Facebook page is funny.

Loveland is unique because of wind loading.

Low tide sucks in Colorado up at those altitudes (above/at treeline) because of rocks.

I believe march april will be epic pow months.....whoo, hoo!!!

Yeah, the butthurt has been pretty tremendous. I'm pretty butthurt myself. My only real beef has been south chutes and the trees between 2 and 9. That terrain could've definitely been opened awhile back.

meh, they are mitigating risk under extremely challenging high altitude conditions and rare later season low tide. What else would we expect.

Some of the best pro patrol in the USA/world, fyi.

I have never felt safer inbounds, anywhere.

whats funny is most of the Summit County resorts have opened runs they shouldnt have. Was at Keystone all day today and you could hear Avalanche control heavy artillery in the background..

Nah that was just patrols backed up gas from the chilli cook off. They don't bomb at Keystone that might require they do work and we all know Keystone fucking sucks.
