Love the luv but the way that shit pans out at the end of the season makes me happy its summer.

I have not been riding much of lately. Normally I shred all May, but this season is different cause I am working 2 jobs. I slacked all season with a part time job and have over 100 days. Before the Basin closes I want to squeeze in a few more days. Most seasons I am only partially working and ride a lot during May. It does not help they aint running the Swan MTN Flyer during the week this season.

On Aprapahoe Basin's facebook page they are hinting to an extended season.

I had a good season this year, but have to catch up financially from all the slacking. I am pretty lucky to have a of work during mud season. My baby truck needs new shocks and I gotta start paying my student loans again. The gas kills my wallet.

After 200 days of shredding I'm just over it.

Another good day on Loveland Pass. Snowing and cool in the morning but as soon as the sun came out around noon things started to warm up really quick and I called it a day.

Picture from today with the gf breaking 5th commandment of riding in the backcountry.

Nice! I am going to get some more days soon.

I heard Aspen Mountain is reopening for Memorial Day

Aspen Mountain to reopen for holiday weekend | AspenTimes.com

Last season they had to close a week early. They reopened for downhill winter sports 2 seasons ago like this too.

Independence pass is opening up today too. Should make for a good drive out to Aspen.

Wasn't it Snowmass and not Aspen Mountain that had the late reopening in 2011?

Hell I don't remember, but are any of you bitches going to be hitting Independence Pass on Saturday? Lots of fun lines to be done there and it looks like the snow is great. I am pretty sure I'll be there hitting it.

I took this picture yesterday from The Lenaway Chair . The coverage is still pretty good. They were running the Zuma chair. I never made it over there . Pali is closed, but that stuff off to the side looks good. Some of the lower runs like The Northfork and TB Glades are now closed off

lake Revel has not appeared yet. I will be very pissed if they close before pond skimming. Pond skimming is always so much fun to watch.

it's still pretty good out there. It was not terribly sticky either.

Ya rode Thursday and yesterday. Pali is most unfortunately closed : (((. And they took out the 30 foot for a bit since there was running water next to it haha but they are pushing to get it back in before close. The snow is great until about 1 when your wondering who replaced all the slush with quick sand. But there's a bunch of fun crevasses, side hits, 4foot mound mogul runs, and the park is still fun even with out the 30 foot. That lift is just such a buzzkill though.
