i was at keystone sunday...didn't like it at all. area 51 was half ass crap and anything on the left side of the mountain had shrubs, rocks, etc. sticking out. and that was after the 4-5 inches that fell on saturday.
There's definitely some shrubs and rocks out there at Keystone especially off piste. I put a few beauty marks on my snowboard in the outback but all the "obstacles" are pretty easily avoided if you stay on the right parts of the mountain and look ahead a few meters of where you are riding. The few times I have been to Breck this season it has been Icy, windblown and crowded as hell. Now that they have over 1000 acres open crowding might not be so bad on a weekday. But high winds and lack of snowfall seem like a bad combination for Breck. It's sounding more like a Keystone day tomorrow after all.
I've been to keystone 3 times in the last week. Time for something new. I have some new mid layers I want to try out anyways. If anyone decides to hit up Breck send me a text - 773-269 - eight five six two. I'm probably leaving Boulder around 7am.
