I bailed around noon as everything was getting tracked out and the snow was starting to get heavy... and I had shit to do. Snowklinger and the others kept riding though I think, unless they chose to just booze.
Nobody waited for me to finish my beer so I did one more run and bailed. That shit was pissing me off anyway. Fuck all that snow, I'm glad the season is over. If we are gonna get mobbed the last 3 weeks the way we have, I'm gonna pray for shitty conditions or quit early next year. I'm really bitter about our nice mountain turning into a Keystone weekend every fucking weekday. What a rotten taste in my mouth to end the season, can't wait to start hiking. It was a good year but epic conditions the last month were absolutely ruined by poachers (we are talking a 300-2000% increase in people on the mountain compared to mid-winter, even busy times ).

Shit! Was there no space besides your tracks?

Those "poachers" are not buying seasons passes they're buying day tickets I'd be happy they're there as it helps the resort.

I was thinking about maybe heading up for a few runs on Sunday and blasting some groomers, but I fear it'll be a shit show again. Probably gonna pass.

for like $30(which is basically free if you are used to any of the major resorts)....I wouldnt mind if it was a day or two and a bit crowded...but its fucking ridiculous....I get that it helps the resort but the vibe is shot. Not much point in having snow if the whole mountain gets tracked in 30 minutes. I get the feeling Loveland doesn't need money....they seem to do whatever they want. How much is it to go ski Abasin for a day pass right now? Its probably like 80 bucks or some bullshit. At least Luv could be competitive. Also don't remember it being like this in the past. Maybe its just all the snow. Fuck it.

Had this been like 2 seasons ago most of those people wouldn't have gone up because the season was already that good. Late start is bringing everyone out. Basin had people at it but I never waited in line except once on the back side and most of the people there were the biggest bunch of candy asses when choosing lines. Oh you have to traverse through a rock field well sack up buddy cause the lines are good at the end of that.

Loveland reported more, so I think most people headed there. If it was just a bunch of groomer cruisers and dipshits, that would've been fine. Unfortunately, there were a bunch of rippers out and they were all heading for the good stuff that usually doesn't get tracked out and beat to death immediately. Oh well, it was damn good over on 8 in the morning before everyone else found there way over there. Noon was a good time to call it at the Luv.

Unfortunately, Loveland makes a shit ton of money off of those cheap day passes at the end of the season that they're selling to Summit/Epic Pass holders.
